Jerry Friedman Lullabies? Got any? (30) RE: Lullabyes? Got any? 24 Nov 98


I forgot this, from Cox and Box (1866), libretto by Sir F. C. Burnand, music by Arthur Sullivan before he met Gilbert. I have no worries about copyright. By the way, it might help your search to use the correct spellings of "lullaby" and "lullabies".

Box. Hush'd is the bacon on the grid,
I'll take a nap and close my eye,
Soon shall I be nodding, nodding nid,
Nid nodding, nodding, nodding, nodding.
Singing lullaby,
Lullaby, Lullaby,
Lulla, lulla, lulla, lulla, lullaby,
Hush a bye bacon, on the coal top,
Till I awaken, there you will stop,
Hush a bye bacon, on the coal top,
Lullaby, lullaby, lullaby, lullaby, lullaby.

Sleep, gentle bacon, smoke amid,
Which, circling up, smile on the fry,
While I am nodding, nodding nid,
Nid nodding, nodding, nodding, nodding.

Singing lullaby,
Lullaby, Lullaby,
Lulla, lulla, lulla, lulla, lullaby,
Hush a bye bacon, on the coal top,
Till I awaken, there you will stop,
Hush a bye bacon, on the coal top,
Lullaby, lullaby, lullaby, lullaby, lullaby. He falls asleep.
