When it's sleepy time down south, (scat). Soft wind blowin' through the pinewood trees, The folks down there live a life of ease, When whole family falls on their knees When it's sleepy time down south, (scat). Steamboats up the river comin' and goin', (scat) Splashin' the night away, (scat). You hear those banjos ringin', All the people all singing, They dance till the break of day. Dear old Southland with this dreamy song, Take me back where I belong Right in my Mammy's arms When it's sleepy time down south. Dear old Southland with it's dreamy song (scat), Take me back where I belong Right in my Mammy's arm When it's sleepy time, sleepy time down south. Yes, Lord.
