Hush Thee Now to Sleep, My Baby.
Copyright, 1895, by H. W. Petrie.
Words and Melody by Edgar Deering.

I was once a little baby, on my mother's arm,
On her bosom I was free from harm;
With a rattle and a bottle, and a ring to chew,
I was ever ready with a coo, coo, coo,
And at night when papa look me on his knee to ride,
Papa's pride off would slide,
Crawling over to the rug to pull the tabby's tail,
Just as mamma followed on my trail and sang:

Hush! hush! hush thee now to sleep, my baby;
Hush! bush! Do not cry, for I am near thee;
Slumber sweetly while I sing to thee, my dear;
Slumber safely now, while mother's near.
Hush! hush! go to sleep, my little baby,
Hush! hush! hush! hush! hush! hush!

Years have passed since I was but a child on mother's arm;
Years have given added grace and charm;
have met the one I love, and we are married now,
Happy was the day we took the marriage vow;
And as baby coos and crows and smiles beside my chair,
Bright and fair, free from care,
I would fain recall the days when I pulled tabby's tail,
Just as mamma followed on my trail and sang:- Chorus.
