Baby Rhyme Songs

Nursery rhymes, sung or read, with or without actions, are a great way to help baby’s cognitive function. Most rhymes do not necessary makes sense but this does not matter to the baby. Rhymes help to store these words to the brain and to remember it for later. Babies learn to recognize the words, the tunes and the actions in time. They add a sense of silliness and word play and create a great range of vocabulary.

Rhymes can be used to amuse a child on a long car trip or while feeding a baby. Babies love a routine and sense of comfort at night. Time can be aside for little rhymes for your baby whilst getting ready for bed. This will not only help your baby to adjust to music and to learn, but will also help you to set a schedule with time for you to relax in the evening.

Some nursery rhyme songs have actions attached that the baby can learn and use as she grows. Some rhymes are serious and teach kids about tragedy or reality, while other rhymes are nonsense that teach kids humour and playfulness.

Baby Lullaby Songs

Lullabies are soft melodies with a gentle and soothing tone, which mothers often use to quiet their restless babies. Baby lullaby songs are a wonderful way for you to calm and soothe your baby. Babies especially benefit from this during the first year of birth. Lullabies encourage that feeling of calm and peacefulness and are ideal for fussy babies or just to encourage a baby to develop a sense of peace with the world as she grows.

Lullabies have other benefits, which include:

  • Enhancing baby's behaviour, calmness and cognitive skills
  • Stress reliever for the baby and the family
  • Helping a baby to get used to music
  • Peaking a baby’s curiosity and creativity

When singing lullabies to a baby at night, it is important that you choose music that is not too lively or energetic that will excite her or him. Rock music or music with drums should be avoided. A set of lullabies for babies can be great for creating the perfect bedtime atmosphere. Songs that you sing should be of a slow tempo and have a low volume. When played regularly, the lullabies create a sense of security and comfort for the baby and it will set the routine for the days to come.

Songs To Sing To A Baby

The type of music you sing to a baby does not have to be classical and restricted to a specific genre. It should be music that has a combination of rhythm, melody, harmony and words to express the love that is in your heart. You can decide to stick to the standard songs such as “twinkle twinkle” or you can change it up for some playfulness and creativity.


Baby Songs With Lyrics

Babies become part of their environment by listening, copying and then understanding what the words to a song mean. It is important to use songs that have good lyrics and friendly words because the words convey meaning to the music as the infant grows.

Here are some beautiful baby songs that you can sing to your baby with lyrics:

  1. Rock-A-Bye Baby

Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree top,

When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,

When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,

And down will come baby, cradle and all.


  1. Somewhere Over The Rainbow

I got the surprise, the surprise of my life

I had to stop and stare

I saw a man dancing with his own wife

And you will never guess where

Where, where, where, yeah, yeah that side

Chicago, Chicago

That toddlin' town, the toddlin' town

Chicago, Chicago

I'll show you around, I love it

Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues

In Chicago, Chicago


The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down

On State Street, that great street

I just want to stay, I just want to stay

They do things they don't do on Broadway, say

They have the time, the time of their life

I saw a man who danced with his wife


In Chicago, Chicago

Chicago, Chica-are-are-are-are-ago

Free and easy town, brassy, breezy town

Chicago, Chica-are-are-go

Let me cool my heels right down at Marshall Field

Come and walk with me along the lake


To the drake Hollar and Hoot, all through the loop

Shout how-now to Mrs. O'Leary's cow

No she, she, life is peachy

Chicago, we'll meet at the pump room, Ambassador East

To say the least, on shish kebab

And breast of squad we will and get fleeced

Don't tell me sin is rampant and rife

Think of that man who danced with his wife


In Chicago, Chicago

I'm in this city

What a wonderful windy, time.


  1. Twinkle Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.


  1. Rockabilly Lullaby

Rest my little darlin', you've had a busy day

The sun is a fallin', and it is time for me to say, hush


Hush little mermaid, goodnight


Hush little mermaid, sleep tight

Close your eyes, close your eyes and lay down your head

In your peaceful ocean bed, have a snooze, please, like I said

And hush



Hush little mermaid, goodnight, hush little mermaid, sleep tight

You're feeling kind of sleepy

You're feeling kind of loopy

Your fins are getting floppy

And your eyelids getting droopy

May your dreams be sweet as you fall into a snooze

Perhaps again, we will meet but now we have to cruise, so hush



Hush, little mermaid, goodnight


Hush little mermaid, sleep tight, hush, hush little mermaid, goodnight

Hush little mermaid, hush little mermaid, goodnight


  1. Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,

(Mama's/Papa's) gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird won't sing,

(Mama's/Papa's) gonna buy you a diamond ring.


  1. Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream,

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the brook,

If you catch a little fish

Please let it off the hook


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the creek,

If you see a little mouse

Listen to it squeak


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the river,

If the river gets you wet

Don't forget to shiver


Row, row, row the boat

Gently to the shore,

If you see a lyin' bear

Don't forget to roar


Row, row, row your boat

Watch the water flow,

Rowing is fun but rowing is hard

That is what I know


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the lake,

Don't stand up and rock the boat

That's a big mistake!


Row, row, row your boat

See the water run,

Rowing here and rowing there

Oh we're almost done


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream,

Ha ha fooled ya all

I'm a submarine


Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream,

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream
