Jigglypuff, jiggly... puff.
Jigglypuff, jiggly... puff.
Jigglypuff, jiggly... puff.

Repeat until everyone's asleep, and then use a permanent marker to draw on everyone's faces, even the faces of other Pokémon.

Kudos to generic-man for noding this, but I think the following is more accurate:

Jiii gully puff, jiggle ee puff.
Jiii gully puff, jiggle ee puff.
Jiii gully puff, jiggle ee puff.

Can anybody find a way of noding the tune?

Here's the Jigglypuff's lullaby as LilyPond file. Forget the above-mentioned ASCII things and obscure numerical formats, let the Open Source enlighten you! (Or should that be "free software"? After all, RMS seems to like Lilypond.)

BTW, I think I know the secret why Jigglypuff's slong is so sleep-inducing... All those key changes, see? If it sounds like it'd be performed while asleep, the feeling shall be mutual.

Jigglypuff's Lullaby
from Pokémon

For GNU Lilypond music typesetter.
Entered By Weyfour WWWWolf, based on the ASCII rendition available on
Everything2.com, and it's here only for annoyance purposes. Feel free
to distribute this one further.

I'm not sure about the end, though, I chose the version that sounded
best. Since the idea was to node the *melody*, I left the chords
out...
