Sleep Now My baby Boy

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy is so proud of you…
Now your life’s begun.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy will give you all his love…
That will go on and on.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy will play when you’re awake…
Together we’ll have some fun.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy will brighten up your day…
As bright as the noonday sun.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy has a job to do
From you he must be gone

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy is setting off to war…
And he will take his gun.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy cannot come back home…
Until his task is done.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now my son.
Daddy will return to you…
When the war is won.

Sleep now my baby boy…
Sleep now….my darling son…
Daddy’s got to go now…
Daddy’s got to run…

My baby boy…
My dear son…
I’m sorry…I’m so sorry…
Goodnight…and…goodbye
