Words and Music by Agnes Clayton.

Oh, come, little darling, now lay in my arms; now come, little darling, don't cry;
The moon is a-beaming out from the sky, I'll sing you a sweet lullaby;
Your mamma she told me to watch over you, she told me to not let you weep;
So come now, my darling, my own little dear, and I will rock you to sleep.

Little bright eyes now go to sleep,
Little bright eyes now do not weep;
For mamma will come when the daylight is dawning,
Little bright eyes I'll watch you 'till morning.

Your papa and mamma have gone to a ball, to watch the departing old year;
They left you with me to keep you from harm, so bush, little baby, don't fear;
So now close those eyes, those little bright eyes, and nestle up close to my breast.
Now put up your lips and give one little kiss, then I will rock you to sleep.- Cho.
