Go to sleep my baby, close your pretty eyes. Angels high above you, pearling at you deary from the skies. Great big moon is shining, stars begin to peep. Time for little pikanini to go to sleep Time for little eyes to go to sleep My Nana sang it to me, and it's just made me cry writing it down. Think I have the words right. That's what I sang to my girls anyway.

Go to Sleep My Baby Lullaby Go to sleep my baby Close your pretty eyes Angels up above you Watching very closely from the skies Great big moon is shining, stars begin to peep Time for little pickaninnies to go to sleep.

The words that I remember for, 'Go To Sleep My Baby' are as follows: Go to sleep my baby Close your pretty eyes Angels up above you Peeping at you dearly from the skies Great big moon is shining Stars begin to peek Time for little pickaninnies To go to sleep Close your pretty eyes and sleep. Wishing you many lovely days, Elizabeth. Over 50 lullabies and recordings from all over the world.

I first met Suzi when she and I were colleagues in a publishing house, where Suzi was a marketing manager. Now she is Head of Communications for Kent Music, and has aligned her career with one of her great enjoyments - music. Here she recalls a song which was very special to her. The song I remember most affectionately from early childhood is a lullaby my mum sang to me. It was one which my mum's mum sang to her, and it's the song I have sung to my own babies. So it has been loved by at least four generations of my family.
I cannot recall her singing it in my own toddler and little-boyhood years, it was no doubt too incredibly soppy for the tiny macho-twerp that I once was. Since writing the above, I have been amazed at the number and variety of versions all you kind people have sent me to be posted. And now dear surfers and contributors, in June , the ultimate lyrics have been sent from North Wales by Lesley Baxendale.
