Magical Moment 26, "Mary's Lullaby"

This is a song I wrote for my mother, Mary, who used to rock my sisters and I to sleep when we were little girls. The songs I remember hearing most are; Mary Had a Little Lamb (all 3 verses) and Amazing Grace. To hear the recording of this song, please go to: http://www.myspace.com/maryelizabethgrimes Click on Mary's Lullaby in the right hand box and press play. You can also view video of a performance, scroll down. I hope you enjoy it.

Mary's Lullaby words and music by Elizabeth Grimes Copyright 2008


The stars in her eyes twinkle like the ones outside
Now she’s fast asleep.
And the creak in the floor from that old rocking chair
Plays in time as her mother sings.

Sleep tight. Sleep tight. And close your eyes.
Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.
Oh Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.

All through the night, she’s not in her bed
For her mother still rock-a-byes.
When she forgets the words to the rhyme she hums
And sways to the lullaby.

Sleep tight. Sleep tight. And close your eyes.
Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.
Oh Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.

For soon she knows she’ll be too big to hold.
So Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.
Oh Mary rocks her little lamb to sleep.
Da da dee dum da dee da dum.
