Variations NEW
by: Dubris

Interesting that we all seem to know a slightly different version.

Mine included "When Daddy said"

Also Instead of Peter Piper I was sung "Tommy Tucker put away his pie"

I am 62 now, thanks for the memories.

When Mummy said its time for bed NEW
by: Ian Crowder, age 67

My parents are 94 and last night I was trying to recall and Mum sang it - couldn't remember the words. Not a real shortcut to childhood - clearly popular I'm my mother's family when she was a youngster in London and then Odiham before the war... And so the story goes from generation to generation!

When mommy says its time for bed
by: Sal

When mommy says its time for bed up the stairs we go. We used to take a story book, long long ago.....
Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill, Peter Piper played a lullaby. Red Riding Hood was in the Wood Puss was in the well, Little Bo-Peep was counting sheep when Humpty Dumpty fell. Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill Peter Piper played a lullaby.
Lights out in dreamland the sand mans on his way, lights out in dreamland we've had a lovely day. The memory is still with me, gladly I recall. The story's old but still its told when the shadows fall. Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill, and now its time to say goodnight, goodnight, goodnight.

Song lyrics
by: Angiecreff

When Mommy said it's time for bed, up the stairs we climb.
We always took a story book, Once Upon A Time.
Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill, Peter Piper played a lullaby.
Red Riding Hood was in the wood, puss was in the well, while Little Bo Peep was counting sheep, Humpty Dumpty fell.
Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill, Peter Piper put away his pipe.
Lights out in dreamland, the Sandman is on his way, lights out in dreamland, hasn't it been a lovely day.
The memory is still with me, gladly I recall. The story's old but still is told, when the shadows fall. Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill, now I think it's time to say goodnight....goodnight....good..night. xx

Hi i can get you all of the lyrics to this :)

Never met anyone before who knows it.

All we know is that my Grandma's Dad used to sing it to her and she just passed away today age 87.

I'll check back and hope you see this then will get full set of words off my Mum :)
