With roses bedight,
With lilies o’erspread,
Is my baby’s wee bed.
Lay you down now and rest,
May your 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.

Here, let me show you what I can do.
I can change my handle and my spout,
Tip me over and pour me out.

7: All the pretty little horses

This one is exactly how baby rhymes are supposed to be. All the pretty little horses’s exact origins are unknown but this song is thought to date back to the civil war era.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.

Black and bay, dapple and grey,
Coach and six little horses.
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, down in the meadow,
There’s a poor wee little lamby.
The bees and the butterflies pickin’ at its eyes,
The poor wee thing cried for her mammy.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleepy little baby.
When you wake, you’ll have cake,
And all the pretty little horses.

6: All through the night

Placed 6th among most popular kids rhymes, “All through the night” is the English version of a Welsh folk song titled as “Ar Hyd y Nos.” The original one was written by Welsh poet, John Ceiriog Hudges and was sung to a melody that was first published by  Welsh Harpist, Edward Jones in 1784.

All the stars’ twinkles say,
All through the night,
“This is the way to the realm of glory,”
All through the night.
Darkness is a different light
That exposes true beauty,
The Heavenly family in peace,
All through the night.
O, how cheerful smiles the star,
All through the night.
To light its earthly sister,
All through the night.
Old age is night when affliction comes,
But to beautify man in his late days,
We’ll put our weak light together,
All through the night.
