lyrics

Hush my darling,
Don’t you weep,
Close your eyes and go to sleep,
Dream a little dream,
Of mik streaming down from the sky,
While I sing this sentimental lullaby

Rock-a-bye baby,
Don’t you cry,
Let the cradle drift on by,
Until it does,
I’ll be by your side,
And I’ll be singing this sentimental lullaby

Goodnight little feet,
It’s time to stop running in place,
Goodnight little hands,
It’s time to stop throwing shapes

So don’t you fuss and don’t you fight,
For it is time to say goodnight,
Because the sandman is coming soon,
Guided by the light of the amber moon,
And he’s singing a familiar tune,
This sentimental lullaby
