MY LITTLE BUCKAROO (M.K. Jerome / Jack Scholl) Recorded by : Bing Crosby; Doc Watson. Version 1 Close your sleepy eyes, My little Buckaroo. While the light of the western skies, Is shinin' down on you. Don't you know it's time for bed, Another day is through. So go to sleep, My little Buckaroo. Don't you realize, My little Buckaroo, That it was from a little acorn, That the Oak tree grew? And remember that your dad, Was once a kid like you. So go to sleep, My little Buckaroo. Soon you're gonna ride the range, Like grown up cowboys do. Now it's time that you were roundin' up, A dream or two. So go to sleep, My little Buckaroo. ***** Version 2 Close your sleepy eyes, My little Buckaroo, While the light of the western skies Is shining down on you. Don't you know it's time for bed, Another day is through So go to sleep, My little Buckaroo. Oo, oo, oo, oo, Soon you're gonna ride the range Like grown up cowboys do Now it's time that you were rounding Up a dream or two So go to sleep, My little Buckaroo. ***** Version 3 Go to sleep, my little buckaroo, though the lights of the western sky are shining down on you, don't you know it's time for bed, another day is through, oh, go to sleep, my little buckaroo. Don't you want to be a cowboy like your daddy? Ride the range and maybe rope a calf or two Well you know that all good cowboys need their sleep time, so, go to sleep, my little buckaroo ummmmmmm
