Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
Originally called "Dutch Lullaby"
by Eugene Field (1850-1895)



Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night

Sailed off in a wooden shoe

Sailed on a river of crystal light,

Into a sea of dew.

"Where are you going, and what do you wish?"

The old moon asked the three.

"We have come to fish for the herring fish

That live in this beautiful sea.

Nets net of silver and gold have we!"

Said Wynken,

Blynken,

And Nod.



The old moon laughed and sang a song

As they rocked in the wooden shoe,

And the wind that sped them all night long

Ruffled the waves of dew.

The little stars were the herring fish

That lived in the beautiful sea.

"Now cast your nets net wherever you wish

Never afeared afraid are we";

So cried the stars to the fishermen three:

Wynken,

Blynken,

And Nod.



All night long their nets net they threw

To the stars in the twinkling foam

Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,

Bringing the fishermen home;

'Twas all so pretty a sail it seemed

As if it could not be,

And some folks thought 'twas a dream they dreamed

Of sailing the beautiful sea

But I shall name you the fishermen three:

Wynken,

Blynken,

And Nod.



Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,

And Nod is a little head,

And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies

Is a wee one's trundle bed.

So shut your eyes while mother sings

Of wonderful sights that be,

And you shall see the beautiful things

As you rock in the misty sea,

Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:

Wynken,

Blynken,

And Nod.
