WHIPP'WILL'S singin' to de moon, --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
He sing a pow'ful mo'nful tune,
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
De day bird 's sleepin' on his nes',
He know it time to take a res',
An' he gwine ter do his lebel bes', --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
Old banjo's laid away, --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
Its pickin's froo for to-day, --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
De night time surely come to pass,
De cricket's chirpin' in de grass,
An' de ole mule 's gone to sleep at las', --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
I hear de night win' in de corn, --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
Dey's a ghos' out dah, sure's yo born, --
Go sleep, ma honey, m--m.
But he dassent come where we keep a light,
An' de candle's burnin' all de night,
So sink to res', des be all right, --
Go sleep ma honey m--m.
