The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
Here's a ball for baby, big and soft and round.
Here's a baby's hammer. Oh! how he can pound.
Here's a big umbrella to keep the baby dry.
Here's baby's cradle, rock-a-baby-bye.
Rock-a-by, don't you cry, we will go see granny. Up the hill, behind the mill to see the little lambie.
Baby is a sailor boy, sleep, baby, sleep.
The father is captain and mother is mate,
Sleep, baby, sleep.
(Song sung while rocking children to sleep.)
