We've been singing a lot of baby lullabies these past few weeks. Spencer was singing "Here comes the Sandman" last night to Caleb. He told Karen that I made up the song. I told him that my mother sang it to me, and her mother sang it to her. Then I found it on the Internet to prove that it's been around for a long time. Some of the words were a bit different, but the song was clearly the same one.
Let's see how well my children remember the lyrics to this old lullaby I sang to you when you were babies. See if you can fill in the blanks (by posting comments).
Here comes the sandman
_________ so lightly
_________ along on the tips of his toes
As he sprinkles the sand with his own little hand
In the eyes of the sleepy children
Go to sleep my children
Close your sleepy eyes
The lady moon is _______
Throughout the ________ skies
The little stars are peeking
To see if you are sleeping
Go to sleep my children,
Go to sleep, Good night!
