Winkum, Winkum, shut your eyes
While I sing sweet lullabies
For the dew is falling soft
Lights are flickering up aloft
And the moon is peeping over
Yonder hilltop, capped with clover

Chickens long have gone to rest
Birds lie snug within their nest
And my darling soon will be
Sleeping like a chickadee
For with only half a try
Winkum, Winkum shuts her eyes

[Winkum, Winkum shut your eyes]
