VERSE 01: (HE) Little Lady don’t be depressed and blue,/After all we’re both in the same canoe./Have no fear can’t you see I’m here?/And till our journey is through,/Little Lady I will take care of you.
VERSE 02: (SHE) When the babes lost in the gloomy wood,/It’s no wonder they were so very good./Fourteen angels were watching them,/So all the story books state,/Sandman’s coming now,/It is getting late.
REFRAIN 01: Give me your hand, here where we stand,/We’re off to Slumberland,/Come, dry your eyes I’ll sympathize/Like a father, mother, brother./Moonlight is bright, kiss me goodnight,/Just like a sister should,/Then put on your little hood,/And we’ll both be,/Oh, so good!/Like the babes in the wood./wood.REFRAIN 02: Give me your hand, I understand,/We’re off to Slumberland,/With you, I’ll go although we’ve no/Angel chorus watching o’er us./Moonlight is bright, kiss me goodnight,/Just like a brother should,/I’ll put on my little good,/But we’ll both be twice as good!/As the babed in the wood.
