Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Brahms' Lullaby
The words I learned are close to Bri's (from 1999, above):

Lullabye, and good night
With roses bedight
With lilies o'erhead
Make baby's sweet bed
Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumbers be blest
Lay thee down now and rest
May thy slumbers be blest

I believe it was from a beginning piano book that had the notes in different colors, which corresponded to a chart that you wedged behind the black keys so it matched up with the keys on the piano. We're probably talking 1958 or 1959 here.

Aloha,
