HUSH! HERE COMES THE DREAM MAN (Robert Patrick Weston / Fred J. Barnes / Maurice Scott) Florrie Forde - 1911 Edith Serpell 1912 Jack Charman - 1913 Evelyn Griffiths & Charles Hawtry - 1930 Henry Hall & His Orchestra - 1938 The Dream Man's coming on a train of cars With moonbeam windows and his wheels of stars So kiss your Mummy and kiss your Pa Then all aboard you little ones The railroad track, it is a railroad bright That runs right up into the starry night So come you little ones, have no fear The Man in the Moon is the engineer Hush! here comes the Dream Man Hush! here comes the Dream Man Now you children, run up the stairs Put on your nighties and say your prayers And ride with Mr. Dream Man Until daylight comes again And see all the wonders of Wonderland On the Dream Man's train Hush! here comes the Dream Man Hush! here comes the Dream Man Now you children, run up the stairs Put on your nighties and say your prayers And ride with Mr. Dream Man Until daylight comes again And see all the wonders of Wonderland On the Dream Man's train EXTRA VERSES (It is not known if these were written as part of the original song, or if they were added years later): Oh, we’re are going to meet Jack and Jill, They live in a house on Pumpkin Pie Hill It’s an all night trip aboard your pillow slip On the Sleepy Night express All the little tots down in sleepy town Are awaiting to meet the train With their licorice sticks, chocolate hats And peppermint candy canes There’s Tom thumb riding on a big black snail And Neptune sitting on ol’ Jonah’s whale A poor old seaweed rings the engine bell It's made with a winkle in an oyster shell TRIVIA: The chorus was parodied by soldiers in the trenches during World War One, as follows: Hush! Here comes a Whizz-Bang Hush! Here comes a Whizz-Bang Now you soldiers, get down those stairs Down in your dug-outs, and say your prayers Hush! Here comes a Whizz-Bang And it's making straight for you And you'll see all the wonders of No-Man's Land If a Whizz-Bang hits you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2009)
