Sleepy Songs


Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

Go to sleep, go to sleep, little darling I love you.
Go to sleep, go to sleep, little darling go to sleep.
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, go to sleep have sweet dreams.
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, go to sleep and have sweet dreams.

Moonlight so sweet and pale from heaven falling.
Soft winds on gentle wings to us are calling.
Moonlight so sweet and pale from heaven falling.
Soft winds on gentle wings to us are calling.
Stars shining brightly in the night.
Moonbeams so silver bright.
Moonbeams so silver bright.

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes.
Smiles awake you when you rise.
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
and I will sing a lullaby.
Lullaby, lullaby, lullaby.

Go to sleep, go to sleep, little darling I love you.
Go to sleep, go to sleep, little darling go to sleep.
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, go to sleep have sweet dreams.
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, go to sleep and have sweet dreams.
