I sing this to my son everyday.  This is how I remember it:

"How I love my pretty baby.  Sweet and precious little baby. How I love my pretty baby.  Honest to goodness, I do.  Sleep tight, Sandman's a comin' and he'll be here mighty, mighty soon, and if you don't cry, he'll be comin' by with a great, big lollipop moon."

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  



This song has haunted me for 30 years - I used to sing what I remembered to my children but wanted to know all of the lyrics and could never find it. I always thought it was from a Doris Day movie.  Can't thank you enough for solving this mystery.

But it also has a verse on pattycake - something like - "everytime you do a patty cake, my heart does a pattycake too".  I'll post the rest when/if I find it!

How I love my pretty baby

I love every little thing you do

And every time you make a patty-cake

My heart makes a patty-cake, too.

We have a version in my family too. Passed down for several generations. My grandmothers mammy (kind of like a nanny house keeper in the south) sang it to her. She to my mother, my mother to me, and me to my daughter.



How I love my pretty "name of child"

Every little thing you do

And I know my pretty "name of child"

Loves her mommy to (auntie, daddy, mammy, anything substituted)



See here the sand man's a'comin

And he'll be here

Very soon

See here, the sand man's a'comin

With a great big lolli pop for you



how I love my little "name of child"

Every little thing you do

And when my baby goes a patty cake

My heart goes patty cake too!
