"Hush! Here Comes the Dream Man" is a song originally written by Robert Patrick Weston, Fred J. Barnes, and Maurice Scott. The song has been recorded by several artists throughout the early 1900s and is a very important factor to the plot of Alice: Madness Returns. It was used by Doctor Bumby to comfort children during the process of forgetting their memories.

Versions Edit

Original lyrics Edit

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.

Alice: Madness Returns lyrics Edit

Orphan's version Edit

The Sandman's coming in his train of cars,
with moonbeam windows and with wheels of stars.
So hush you little ones and have no fear,
the man in the moon, he is the engineer.

Dollmaker's version Edit

The train is coming with its shiny cars.
With comfy seats and wheels of stars.
So hush my little ones have no fear.
The man in the moon is the engineer.

Trivia Edit

  • An orphan can be heard singing the song, facing a wall, and staying away from other children in a catatonic state near Whitechapel Market.[1]
  • It is possible that this song was chosen as the Orphans' lullaby due to the fact that the original lyrics specifically mention Wonderland.
  • The song was parodied in the first World War by soldiers in the trenches and was called "Hush! Here Comes a Whizbang" (alternatively spelled "whizz-bang").[2]
