Wynken, Blynken and Nod - Lyrics

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
Nests of silver and gold have we
Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

The old moon laughed and sang a song, As they rocked in a 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 afeard are we
So cried the stars to the fishermen three: Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

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

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
