Lyrics

Rockabye baby to sleep
Each beat of my heart
You will keep.
In the back of your mind
As you stand up to find
Life is faster when you're
Up on two feet.

Won't you sing me a song
about love? About love.
Won't you sing me
a lullaby pure?
Because daddys know fear
And mothers cry silent tears
When time won't
stand still anymore.

Be careful child
when you go out to play
To your world of
Make-believe everyday
Building castles in the woods
And like all children should
Knowing home's just
A few steps away.

Won't you sing me a song
about love? About love.
Won't you blow me a kiss
From the door?
Because mother's know fear
And children cry silent tears
When time won't
Stand still anymore.

Take care son
When you sit behind the wheel
You're moving faster
Than you actually feel.
Bring her back by midnight
And if you care for her right
She'll write letters to you
Out in the field.

And won't you write me
a letter of love? Of love.
Won't you sing me
A song about war?
Young soldiers know fear
And lovers cry silent tears
When time won't
Stand still anymore.

Relax now that your
Work days are done.
Take walks with
Your wife in the sun.
Rest in the shade
And as you sip lemonade
Watching children go
By in their fun.

Won't you sing me a song
About love? About love.
Won't you sleep by
My side evermore?
Because old men know fear
And widows cry silent tears
When time won't stand still
Anymore.
