Bye Baby Bunting
Daddy's gone a-hunting
Mummy's gone a-milking
Sister's gone a-silking
Brother's gone to buy a skin
To wrap the Baby Bunting in.

Information About Bye Baby Bunting

Bye Baby Bunting is a popular English nursery rhyme and lullaby. The term "bunting" can be used to mean "plump". A version in Songs For The Nursery, had longer lyrics compared to the original.

The earliest version of the rhyme dates as far back as the 1780's, but the longer version as from 1805.

The poem basically tells the story of a family, where the father goes hunting, the mother goes milking, the sister is silking (probably, tailoring), and the brother has gone to buy a skin to wrap baby bunting in.

This is consistent with the activities that different family members took part in at the time of the rhyme's creation.
