This is a well known and popular Scottish song; the tune is probably older than the lyrics. (A Gaelic lullaby sung to this tune is 'Nam bu leam fhìn thu thàlaidhinn thu' / If you were mine I would lull you to sleep)

The following are the lyrics to this recording:

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell,
Angus is here wi' dreams to sell o
Hush my wee bairnie an' sleep wi' oot fear
Dream Angus has brought you a dream my dear

Can ye no hush yer weepin'
A' the wee bairns are sleepin'
Birdies are nestling, an' nestling' the gither
But my bonnie bairn is waken yet

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell,
Angus is here wi' dreams to sell o
Hush my wee bairnie an' sleep wi' oot fear
Dream Angus has brought you a dream my dear

Hear the curlew cryin' o
An' the echoes dyin' o
Even the birdies are cuddled up sleepin
But my bonnie bairn is weepin' greetin'

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell,
Angus is here wi' dreams to sell o
Hush my wee bairnie an' sleep wi' oot fear
Dream Angus has brought you a dream my dear

Soon the lavrock sings his song
Welcoming the coming dawn
Lambies coorie doon the gither
Wi' the yowies in the heather

Dreams to sell, fine dreams to sell,
Angus is here wi' dreams to sell o
Hush my wee bairnie an' sleep wi' oot fear
Dream Angus has brought you a dream my dear.


This lullaby comes from 'Kist o Dreams', a CD designed to encourage the carers of young children to sing to them. The lullabies were chosen by Christina Stewart either because she particularly liked them as a child or because they worked well with her own children.

Christina Stewart was born in Inverness and studied traditional song as part of her University degree. The versions of the lullabies on the CD are the ones she sings but most have many other versions
