Copyright, 1891, by Chas. F. Pidgin.
Poem by George E. Hicks. Music by Louis Weiler.
Arranged by Charles F. Pidgin.

In the dark'ning heavens hangs the silver ladle,
While I sing you bye-low, bye-low-bye;
Shut your eyes, my baby, I will rock your cradle,
You must rest each pretty, sleepy eye.

Time to shut "oo" eyes, and 'top "oo" roguish blinkin'-
No! they sha'n't scold "oo." now don't "oo" cry;
See, the "moony man" at baby-bye Is winkin',
Bye-low, bye-low-baby, bye-low-bye.

Bye-low, bye-low, bye-low, bye-low,
The "moony man" is winkin',
And baby's eyes are blinkin',
Bye-low, baby, bye-low, bye-low, baby, bye-low-bye.

See, like glist'ning lights, the watching stars are gleaming,
Soft the moonbeams tremble on thy bed;
Catching brighter rays from where thy curls are streaming,
O'er the snowy pillow 'neath thy head.- Cho. & Refrain.

Now your red lips grieve-there's nothing to alarm you,
For, of such as you, up in the sky
Angel bands keep guard that nothing ill may harm you,
Hush-a-bye-low, baby, hush-a-bye.- Cho. & Refrain.

See my baby's eyes-two gold-fringed curtains cover
Those bright wells of brown so soft and deep;
Tender, flitting smiles o'er red lips hover.
Angels kissing baby in his sleep.- Cho. & Refrain
