Big Bird's Lullaby

My mom used to sing this song to us when we were little and now she sings it to Natalie. Natalie has been requesting it lately but I didn't know the words until today, so here we go...

Sleep my baby
Softly rest
Like a nestling
In a nest
Though you are too small to fly
You'll be a big bird, by and by
Though your song is still a peep
Soft your feathers
Small your beak
Tuck your head beneath your wing
Hear the guardian angels sing
Cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep
Sleep my baby
Go to sleep.

Wow - I just remembered this song myself this morning but couldn't quite remember the words - thank you! I used to listen to this record as a child while falling asleep and my parents still remember pretty much all the songs.

I don't suppose you have a recording of the record? I had a copy of the record once upon a time but fear its been lost in too many moves....
