Today was a bit of a rough day, and I was sitting in my chair just trying to zone out when this song started playing in the background of a tv show. Hushabye Mountain has always been a comforting and soothing song for me since I first heard Dick Van Dyke sing it in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. So for any of you who also had a Manic Monday, here it is.
A gentle breeze from Hushabye Mountain
Softly blows o’er lullaby bay.
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting—
Waiting to sail your worries away.
It isn’t far to Hushabye Mountain
And your boats wait down by the quay.
The winds of night so softly are sighing—
Soon they will fly your troubles to sea.
So close your eyes on Hushabye Mountain.
Wave good-bye to the cares of the day.
And watch your boat from a Hushabye Mountain
Sail far away from lullaby bay.
