20 Baby Song Lyrics for Their Bedtime

It’s the end of the day and your little one is supposed to fall asleep. The point is, even at bed time, children can never get enough of attention. The best solution for those crucial extra moments your child needs with you is that you sing them a soothing rhyme. But can you really remember all those baby song lyrics?

This collection of words will come in handy whether you want to sing a cute song for babies or go straight for the lullaby that will official end your parental duties for the day.

Tip: If you prefer to play the song’s music as you sing, every song has a link to both the lyrics and a karaoke video underneath. Just lower your device’s brightness, its volume, and, remember, screens wake us up, so do not show them the videos at that time.

 

Brahms’ Lullaby (Cradle Song)

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 good night,
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.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Lyrics:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
How I wonder what you are.

Itsy-Bitsy Spider

Lyrics:

1. The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the spout again

2. The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the big tall tree
Down came the snow and made the spider freeze
Out came the sun and melted all the snow
So the itsy-bitsy spider had another go

3. The itsy-bitsy spider climbed in the bubble bath
Then came rubber duckie and made the spider laugh
Down came the water and washed him down the drain
So the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the spout again

4. The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up without a stop
She spun a silky web right at the very top
She wove and she spun and when her web was done
The itsy-bitsy spider she rested in the sun

Rock-a-bye baby
On the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all.

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

And I will sing a lullaby.

Amazing Grace

Lyrics:

1. Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found,
Was blind, but now I see.

2. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

3. Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

4. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

Little Boy Blue

Lyrics:

Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow;
The cow’s in the corn.
Where is the boy,
Who looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack
Fast asleep.

Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow;
The cow’s in the corn.
Will you wake him?
No, not I,
For if I do,
He’s sure to cry.

When I am king, dilly, dilly, You shall be queen

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Lyrics:

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby, oh

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dream of
Dreams really do come true-ooh-ooh
Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops that’s where
You’ll find me, oh

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to
Oh why, oh why can’t I? I

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top that’s where you’ll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to
Why, oh why can’t I? I

All the Pretty Little Horses

Lyrics:

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
go to sleep, my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
all the pretty little horses.
Dapples and grays, pintos and bays,
all the pretty little horses.
Hush you bye, don’t you cry,
go to sleep my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
all the pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, in the meadow,
poor little baby, crying mama.
Birds and the butterflies, flutter ’round his eyes,
little baby crying mama.
Dapples and grays, pintos and bays,
all the pretty little horses.
Hush you bye, don’t you cry,
go to sleep, my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
all the pretty little horses.

You Are My Sunshine

Lyrics:

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

1. The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head, and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

2. I’ll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another,
You’ll regret it all one day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

Please don’t take my sunshine away

Hush, Little Baby

Lyrics:

1. Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

2. And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

3. And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

4. And if that looking glass is broke,
mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat.

5. And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.

6. And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

7. And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.

8. And if that horse and cart fall down,
you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

All Through the Night

Lyrics:

1. Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping
I my loving vigil keeping
All through the night

2. While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O’er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night

3. Though I roam a minstrel lonely
All through the night
My true harp shall praise sing only
All through the night
Love’s young dream, alas, is over
Yet my strains of love shall hover
Near the presence of my lover
All through the night

4. Hark, a solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night
Thou, my love, art heavenward winging
Home through the night
Earthly dust from off thee shaken
Soul immortal shalt thou awaken
With thy last dim journey taken
Home through the night

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Lyrics:

1. I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

(chorus)
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

2. If you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends I’m coming too
Coming for to carry me home

(chorus)
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

3. The brightest day that I can say
Coming for to carry me home
When Jesus washed my sins away,
Coming for to carry me home.

(chorus)
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

4. Sometimes I’m up and sometimes I’m down
Coming for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Coming for to carry me home

(chorus)
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home.

Oranges and Lemons

Lyrics:

1. Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement’s.
You owe me five farthings,
Say the bells of St. Martin’s.

2. When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.
When I grow rich,
Say the bells of Shoreditch.

3. When will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.
I do not know,
Says the great bell of Bow.

4. Here comes a candle
to light you to bed.
And here comes a chopper
to chop off your head!
