1. Sleep baby sleep
Thy father tends the sheep.
Mother shakes the dreamland tree,
And down fall pleasant dreams for thee,
Sleep baby sleep.

2. Sleep baby sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep baby sleep

This is a good song for beginning recorders, as it encourages students to play softly.
