Art Garfunkel - Another lullaby
Tekst en muziek: Jimmy Webb
(1973)






Close your eyes, my pretty child
Though the night is dark and the wind is wild
I will stand beside your bed
Tonight there is nothing you need, fear or dread



You can’t sleep now, go to sleep
The rain falls and the windows weep
I am standing by
To sing a lullaby



Close your eyes, my sister fair
Though the snow is falling and the trees are bare
And I will hold you by the hand
Tonight there is nothing you need, try to understand



You can’t sleep now, go to sleep
The daytime’s dyin’ and the nighttime’s so deep
I am standing by
To sing a lullaby



Close your eyes, my mother wise
When the waves are angry and the north train cries
I stop those ghosts outside your door
Mama, don’t worry ’bout those ghosts no more



You can’t sleep now, go to sleep
Tomorrow comes, but it will keep
I am standing by
To sing a lullaby



Another lullaby
Another lullaby
Another lullaby
