4 Lullabies To Sing To Your Baby

In a recent blog post we explored why singing your baby to sleep is such a positive thing to do

So, now that you’re inspired to soothe your baby with song, here are 4 of our favourite lullabies for you to learn and share with your child.

 Baa Baa Black Sheep

This is a traditional English lullaby with a simple, memorable tune. We love that it can also introduce the ‘sheep counting game’ to your children when they’re a little bit older, so it can help them get to sleep for years to come. It was originally printed in 1744, in Tommy Thumb’s Song Book.

Lyrics:

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, have you any wool?

Yes, sir, Yes, sir, three bags full

One for my master and one for my dame

And one for the little (girl/boy) who lives down the lane.

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, have you any wool?

Yes, sir, Yes, sir, three bags full

 

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Another traditional lullaby, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was first published as a poem by Ann and Jane Taylor in 1805.

Full Lyrics:

Twinkle twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

When the blazing sun is gone

When he nothing shines upon

Then you show your little light

Twinkle, twinkle all the night

Then the traveler in the dark

Thanks you for your tiny spark

He could not see which way to go

If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep

And often through my curtains peep

For you never shut your eye,

‘til the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark

Lights the traveler in the dark

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

An Irish Lullaby — Toora Loora Loora

Popularised by Bing Crosby, Toora Loora Loora is in fact a lullaby dating back to 1913, written by J.R. Shannon. Its wonderful chorus flows off the tongue and is relaxing and fun for your baby, who’ll soon be singing along.

Chorus lyrics:

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, hush now, don’t you cry!

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, that’s an Irish lullaby.

 

Brahm’s Lullaby

This beautiful lullaby was originally written in German, as a gift for a new baby. The first verse is inspired by a German poetry collection called Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Its language and rhythm speaks to times gone by, and as your little one grows, its history will inspire a curiosity for the past.

 Lyrics:

Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight

With lilies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and goodnight, thy mother’s delight

Bright angels beside my darling abide

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast
