CLOSE YOUR EYES song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

close your eyes
close your eyes
to
all the world
just
say goodbye
close your eyes

hush little baby donít you cry
papaís gonna buy you a mockingbird
and if that mockingbird donít sing
papaís gonna buy you a diamond ring

go to sleep
go to sleep
all that I want
is for you
to be free
go to sleep

outside these four walls
is only hunger, pain and hate
but I stand at the door
to keep them all away
from my baby

hushabye
lullaby
now
is the time
to close
your eyes
hushabye

hush little baby donít you cry
papaís gonna buy you a mockingbird
and if that mockingbird donít sing
papaís gonna buy you a diamond ring

dream in peace
dream in peace
I won't let nothing
disturb
your sleep
dream in peace

in the warm safe room
the dish ran away with the spoon
the little dog laughed to see such fun
three blind mice, see how they run,
rockabye baby on the tree top
when the wind blows the cradle will rock
when the bough breaks the cradle will fall
and down will come baby but I'll catch them all
goodnight tune
goodnight soon
goodnight June
goodnight moon....
