Old lullabies of Jackie Oates

Lullabies are a special kind of bedtime songs. In ancient melodies, which moms sang to their children, there is a thousand-year history. Generations replaced each other, and baby lullabies changed as well. We have collected the largest collection of old cradle songs from all over the Earth. Download and listen to lullabies for free on our website, read the lyrics and learn them along with your baby.

Lavender’s Blue
Jackie Oates

This I must say, dilly dilly, and it is true, 
You must love me, dilly dilly, 'cause I love you.

Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?
'T was my own heart, dilly dilly ,that told me so.
Call up your men, dilly dilly, set them to work, 
Set them to reap, dilly dilly, set them to mow, 
Some to cut hay, dilly dilly, some to cut corn, 
While you and I, dilly dilly, keep ourselves warm.

Close we will live, dilly dilly, and when we die, 
Both in one grave, dilly dilly, close we will lie, 
If I die first, dilly dilly, and that may be, 
You must live on, dilly dilly, thinking of me.

Lavender's green, dilly dilly, Lavender's blue. 
When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen.

Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?
'T was my own heart, dilly dilly ,that told me so.

Dance, Baby
Jackie Oates

Dance, little baby, dance up high,
Never mind mother is nigh;
Crow and caper, caper and crow -
There, little baby, there you go!
Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
Backwards and forwards, round and round.
Smile, baby, and mother will sing!
Merrily, merrily, ding, dong, ding!

Philomel
Jackie Oates

Spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen
Newts and blind-worms, do no wrong,
Come not near our fairy queen.
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, lulla, lulla, lullaby:
Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long-legg'd spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence.
Philomel, with melody
Sing in our sweet lullaby
Never harm,
Nor spell nor charm,
Come our lovely lady nigh;
So, good night, with lullaby.
