On my favorite evenings, my beau's little girl asks me to sing her a lullabye.
It's the one my mother sang to me and my brother when we were little. I've sung it to her enough that she can sing along with me, although lately, she has not joined in as much.
Tonight was just such a special occasion, and I'm glad to share it with you
for blanket bay
won't be back til the break of day
cuddle up in your little white sheet
til all you see are your two little feet
and it's ships ahoy, and sail away
sail away little sleepyhead
and sail away
for blanket bay.
