Favorite Lullabyes

Here are some of the lullabyes I remember my mom singing to me and that I'm now singing to Annalee. Maybe sometime I'll record the tune so you can see how it goes.

The Chocolate Choo Choo
By Vaughn Monroe

Look at that dandy,
Train made of candy,
Waiting on Peppermint Hill.
It's the Chocolate Choo Choo
Leaving for Sleepyville

Drowsy-eyed kiddies
Visit toy cities,
Sandman is paying the bill
On the Chocolate Choo Choo
Leaving for Sleepyville.

Little Boy Blue is the engineer
He's pouring on all the steam.
"All aboard, we're ready to go
To that magic land of dreams."

You'll see the train go
Over the rainbow,
You're bound to get a big thrill
On the Chocolate Choo Choo
Heading for Sleepyville.

Tell Me Why The Stars Do Shine

Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the ivy twines,
Tell me why the sky's so blue,
And then I'll tell you just why I love you.

Because God made the stars to shine,
Because God made the ivy twine,
Because God made the sky so blue,
Because God made you's why I love you.

Hey, I came to your blog through "The Anderson Kitchen" (I love those two). Anyway, I love that you wrote these songs down. I love the lullibies my mom sang to us and some of them I have to go to her for the words.
