I like lazing in the midday sun,
Doing nothing is having fun,
I said, oh Lord I love lazing in your midday sun.
And I like doing my thing all night
With my baby, that suits me right,
I said, come on baby, do your thing all night with me.

And I like swimming in the deep blue sea,
I like swimming but it don't like me,
Come on baby, let me take you to the deep blue sea.

'Cause I'm gonna let my hair hang down,
I'm gonna let my skin turn brown
I said, come on baby, let your hair hang down with me.

Wake me up if you're going down and I'll put things right,
You might get weary sometimes,
I'll give you my word you're gonna sleep tonight.

I said, oh, come closer in my arms,
'Cause I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.
Oh, I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.

Try me out if you're still in doubt because it's up to you,
If I should fail you sometimes
It's not because I wanted to make you blue.

Oh dear no.
Come closer in my arms
'Cause I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues
Oh I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.
