"Rock-a-Bye Your Bear" is one of the Wiggles' favourite songs. They always sing it in live shows and in some of their videos. It made its grand debut in The Wiggles self-titled release, "The Wiggles" back in 1991. The Purple Wiggle often falls asleep at the end of the song, or a teddy bear mascot.

This Wiggly classic was written by Anthony Field and Greg Page.

02 Rock-a-Bye Your Bear


Everybody clap (clap clap clap)

Everybody sing (la la la la la)

Bow to your partner

Then you turn around (Yippee!)

Hands in the air, rock-a-bye your bear

Bears now asleep

Shh shh shh

Bears now asleep

Shh shh shh

(Repeat to Beginning)

("Bear's Now Asleep, Shh! Shh! Shh!" Is repeated as the song fades out)


  • In the original 1991 album version, Jeff snores at the end and Anthony says "Turn that trumpet down! Bears are trying to sleep!".
  • The 2013 version was actually taped in a live studio with a teddy bear mascot who is sleeping at the end until the Wiggles wake him up. This can be seen in TV Series 7.
