The sun's going down, the moon's coming up
The sun's going down,
the moon's coming up,
the day is almost through.
The birds and the bees,
the flowers and the trees are
all getting sleepy, too.
Teddy bear is waiting to say good night and
so is your wooly sheep.
It's time you were tucked in your bed, sleepyhead.
It's time you were going to sleep.
Hush-a-bye, don't you cry.
Close your eyes in sleep...
I used to sing this to my baby brother in the mid-sixties. I no longer remember the end of the song. Now that I am a nanny, I need a copy of the written music, the complete lyrics and/or a recording of it. I sing what I remember to a one-year old every day before her nap and she loves it. Her parents want to learn it, too.
Thanks so much!
