My six year old son finds the few words I do know to this nursery rhyme hysterical. I'd love to know the nursery rhyme in full. Please help!!

You're a sleepy baby, I am tired too,
Close your eyes for Mummy and I'll tell you what we'll do.
We'll tiptoe very quietly, so nobody can hear,
And we'll go up the wooden hill to Bedfordhsire.

3-4 more verses, will have to get the book out though to do the rest. Will do later if no one else has posted it.

My children used to have that version in a nursery rhyme book too, Prettycandles.

However, in our family there was something about a blanket fair too, I'm racking my brains now!

Up the wooden hill
To Bedfordshire
And down Sheet Lane
To Blanket Fair.

I didn't even know it was part of a nursery rhyme. I thought it was a one-liner that my mum had picked up. Just like 'up the molly dancers'. Is that part of a rhyme too?
