A LULLABY FOR CRAWLEY

________________________________________________________________________

Bobby and Nellie, the sun is going down
I will sing our lullaby while the night rolls in around 
It brings relief, but bittersweet  too
I’ll yearn for you. Your tiny toes and giggles
By Sophie Simonsen

Chorus:
Sleep, baby sleep
The wind’s in the trees
The birds have all folded their wings
The moon has come out with her cloak of stars
Shining on until morning comes
Fly baby fly to your dreams in the sky
Just don’t forget to fly back to your ma

Crazy pants Maisie, my sweet banana girl
Devil’s Dyke, see the stars from the top of the hill.
I wish you happiness
May love surround you
Show the world your brilliance
Burst with love and pride.
By Hannah Sutton

Rosie, my precious, my little jumping bean,
Playing in the waves on Ferring Beach,
The sun is setting, the darkness has come,
Now rest your eyes, today’s fun is done..
Then grab the dawn with both of your hands,
Don’t waste any time, my precious baby mine
By Clare Bailey

Mia, mi amor, de mi corazón. 
El viento besa tu carita de algodón. 
Toma mi mano, camina en Crabbet Park.
Nada te turbe, los árboles murmuran
Se feliz mi niña linda, en tu caminar
Tu mami siempre contigo estará
Si cae la lluvia, o si brilla el sol 
Nunca desesperes, muestra siempre tu valor.
By Carmen Ballestas-Ledlie

James, my sweetheart, my beautiful boy
Worth Park, in the lavender making friends with the bees
Henry my darling, my sweet gorgeous boy
Feeding the Cygnet on Worth Park lake
May you be wise but humble too
Find joy in the little things.

The twinkle in your eyes ,
comes from the warmth of my heart
Come sit with me
See the lantern lit on the Kashmir mountain top.
