When mother says it's time for bed

by Lol
(England)

When mother says 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.
While Peter Piper played a lullaby.
Red Riding Hood was in the wood, Puss was in the well.
And while Bo-peep was counting sheep, Humpty-Dumpty fell.
So i think I'd better say goodnight.
Goodnight God bless, that's all I'll say, tomorrow is another day,
So I think I'd better say goodnight.

Who knows the second verse? Maybe it was an East end of London thing?

Verse 2... NEW
by: Anonymous

we sang the first verse slightly differently to you. We call it When Mummy Said. I just finished singing it to my baby actually!

Second verse is:

Lights out in dreamland
The sand mans on his way
Lights out in dreamland
It's been such a lovely day
The memory is still with me Gladly I recall
The stories old but still its told when the shadows fall
Jack and Jill went up the wooden hill
Peter Puper played a lullaby

A very funny lullaby, to tell the truth. Peter Piper and Riding Hood)) It's a strange compilation. Where have you found this?
