"Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" is Genesis' favorite lullaby.

HistoryEdit

When Genesis escaped Heaven, DeBlanc and Fiore followed. When they tracked Genesis down, they found him in Jesse Custer. DeBlanc and Fiore waited for their oppurtunity and seized it when they found Jesse passed out. DeBlanc sang Wynken, Blynken, and Nod to lure Genesis out, though they weren't successful.[1]

DeBlanc and Fiore later deceived Jesse into giving up Genesis for Eugene's return from Hell. While DeBlanc sang the lullaby, Fiore noticed Jesse was resisting. DeBlanc continued the lullaby after telling Jesse not to resist and they managed to finally lure Genesis back into its domicile, though Genesis would escape once again.[2]

Known lyricsEdit

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
Where are you going, and what do you wish?
The old moon asked the three.
We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea.[1]

Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home;
Twas all so pretty a sail it seemed
As if it could not be,
And some folks thought 'twas a dream they'd dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod[2]

Full lyricsEdit

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe —
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
"Where are you going, and what do you wish?
The old moon asked the three.
We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we!
Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

The old moon laughed and sang a song,
As they rocked in the wooden shoe,
And the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew.
The little stars were the herring fish
That lived in that beautiful sea
Now cast your nets wherever you wish
Never afraid are we;
So cried the stars to the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

All night long their nets they threw
To the stars in the twinkling foam
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home;
Twas all so pretty a sail it seemed
As if it could not be,
And some folks thought 'twas a dream they'd dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one's trundle-bed.
So shut your eyes while mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea,
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
