There's a ship sails away at the close of each day,
Sails away to the land of dreams.
Mama's little boy blue, is the Captain and crew
Of this wonderful ship called the "White Pillow Slip".
When the day's play is o'er and the toys on the floor
Cast aside by a little brown hand
Mama hugs him up tight, Papa whispers good night,
Little sailor boy sail into sweet slumber land.
All aboard for Blanket Bay,
Won't come back 'till the break of day,
Roll him 'round in his little white sheet
'Till you can't see his little bare feet
Then you tuck him up in his trundle bed,
Ship ahoy little sleepy head
Bless Mama, bless Papa and sail away,
All aboard for Blanket Bay!
