In 1943, she began her own radio program, The Judy Canova Show , that ran for a dozen years, first on CBS and then on NBC. During World War II, she closed her show with the song "Goodnight, Soldier" ("wherever you may be... my heart's
lonely... without you") and used her free time to sell U.S. War Bonds.

In the post-War years, she ended each show by singing a nursery song:

Go to sleep-y, little baby,
Go to sleep-y, little baby,
When you wake
You'll patty-patty cake,
And ride a shiny little pony.

From what I can see, this maybe a translation of a Swedish nursery rhyme/lullaby.

You wouldn't happen to know the name of that Swedish nursery rhyme would you? I've been looking for the lyrics myself as my grandmother used to sing it to me as well. I'm also trying to find one that contains the lyrics, "and you'll always be your mommy's little chocolate soldier" and "always be a good little soldier like your mommy told you" as best I can remember. Is this from the opera "Chocolate Soldier" by any chance? I haven't been able to find any lyrics from it.
Thank you for your help,
