Wee Willie Winkie: Nursery Rhyme & Bed-Time Song - Sheet Music, midi & mp3

"Wee Willie Winkie" is a nursery rhyme of Scottish origin, though known widely and associated with bed-time. The original lyrics were written by the Scottish poet William Miller (1810- 1872) though they are widely adapted. The Rhyme can be sung in English using "town" and "night-gown" or in traditional Scots using "toon" and "night-goon" (or even "nicht-goon"). It is also normal practice to replace "eight o'clock" with the child's normal bedtime in the last line of the first verse, as a way to encourage your child to go to bed and go to sleep. In Scotland the melody was adapted with different lyrics for a series of adverts in the 1960s for the drink "Irn-Bru".
