Fond recollections now come back to me,
Memories recalled by an old melody;
Visions of someone - a sweet angel face;
One day she left me, and Dad took her place.
Each night he'd put me to sleep with a sigh;
He'd sing this quaint lullaby:
"Your Daddy's work is through,
Your playtime's over, too,
And soon you'll close your sleepy eyes.
Now say a little prayer for someone way up there.
Just listen while you're praying;
You will hear her saying
'Mother has watched over you all the day,
Kept you from harm while your Daddy's away.'
God bless my little man;
Now go to sleep for Dad."
That was my Daddy's Lullaby.
