An African American musician and lyricist
Noble Sissle - Sing Me to Sleep, Dear Mammy Lyrics


Mammy, I’m feeling tired and weary.
My heart is heavy-laden, too.
Mammy, there’s only one who can cheer me,
And that only one is you.

So won’t you sing me to sleep, dear Mammy,
With a “Hush-a-Bye-O-Pickaninny” tune
Just like you did in Alabamy?
Mammy, let me hear you croon,
“Go to sleep, ma honey.
Sandman’s coming soon.
He’s watching you up yonder in the moon.”
Then when I fall to sleep in your dear arms,
I know I’m safe from earthly harms.
If you will sing me to sleep, dear Mammy,
With a “Hush-a-Bye-O-Pickaninny” tune.
