Lullabye

Lui Collins ©1984 Molly Gamblin Music (BMI)

Vocal - Lui
Synthesizer - Jack Jones

Written for my daughter Sylva and for my grandfather, who taught me about letting go gracefully.

Lullabye my own wee baby, lullabye baby
Lullabye and close your eyes, let sleep come peacefully.

Hushabye my own wee baby, hushabye baby
Hushabye and close your eyes, let sleep come peacefully.

And rockabye my own wee baby, rock on Mamma's knee.
Rockabye and close your eyes, let sleep come peacefully.

Grampa's head lay on the pillow, his skin hung loose and grey
but now and then a smile would come to linger peacefully.

And then the call that death had taken the man I loved so well
His life was good, and long, and loving. Let sleep come peacefully.

So hushabye my own wee baby, hushabye baby
Hushabye and close your eyes, let sleep come peacefully.
