Little boy blue

Every photo album has a few pictures of a toddler sleeping in a high chair or under a table. This little lullaby, with its lilting melody, is about a little shepherd who falls asleep on the job.

Sorry- tracks are only up for a week. There are plenty of new ones on the way though!

Little Boy Blue, come blow up your horn
The sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn
Where’s the boy that looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack fast asleep
Will you wake him? No not I
For if I do he’ll be sure to cry

About Daily Rhymetime

I am fascinated by children's songs, old and new, from around the world. I run Rhymetime, and am part of Tuning In, and have three children who humour me by listening to all the wonderful tunes I uncover!
