Lullaby for Our Newest Family Addition

From Muddie (Grandma) to Fionntán

Here is the lullaby I wrote for our newest Grandson.

Baby Listen

For Fionntán McKibbon


Baby, listen to what Mommy says:

Cowboys and horses go to bed.

They close their eyes, lay down their heads

And soon they are asleep.


Baby, listen to what Daddy says:

Trucks and tractors go to bed.

They turn their motors off in a shed

And soon they are asleep.


Baby, listen to what Grandma says:

Dogs and kittens go to bed.

They close their eyes, lay down their heads

And soon they are asleep.


Baby, listen to what Grandpa says:

The big old sun has gone to bed.

The moon is shining down instead.

It’s time to go to sleep.
