Lyrics

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod 

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 of silver and gold have we!" 
Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. 

Ghost children 
Playing in the dark 
Ghost children 
Living worlds apart 

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 that beautiful sea — 
"Now cast your nets wherever you wish — 
Never afraid are we"; 
So cried the stars to the fishermen three: 
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. 

Ghost kisses 
Catch them while you can 
Ghost kisses 
Never leave my hand 


All night long their nets 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'd dreamed 
Of sailing that beautiful sea — 
But I shall name you the fishermen three: 
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. 

Ghost wishes 
One by one to make 
Ghost wishes 
Dreadful the mistake 

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. 

Ghost children 
Playing in the dark 
Ghost children 
Living worlds apart
