Sleeping Song
by Paul Bowles

Baby, baby, who’s my love?
Who’s gonna shut those eyes?
Who’s the one that’s always good?
Who never cries?

Baby, baby, don’t wake up.
It’s lovely where you are.
Mother’d/Daddy’d like to go with you
Ever so far.

Baby, baby, lying there,
you look mighty small.
Wonder if the Lord looked down,
He’d see you at all.
