Sweet, sweet, little slumber,
I have been waiting for you.
In this dark, dark quiet night,
I need you to pull me through.
Sleep, sleep, will you come tonight.
Please don’t stand me up.
And keep me up until daylight.
Sweet, sweet, little dream,
I want you to take me on a little sleigh,
Far far away into the bright light,
And keep me from fright.
Pretty, pretty, little Slumberland,
I can’t find my way to you tonight.
Please come and take my hand.
Take me to the land of sleeping tight.
