Sheep may safely graze
All the wolves have been rounded up
And put to bed

Sheep may safely graze
There are only days of happiness
Up ahead

Sheep may safely graze, my boy
All the crocodiles have been hunted
From your dreams

Sheep may safely graze
While the lambs are gambolling
By the streams

Sheep may safely graze
All the lost children will be found
In time

Sheep may safely graze, my boy
Close your eyes
Your daddy is by your side

And if by chance, you wake at night
The hollow sorrow that lingers
And you grab at the tails of your dreams
But they scuttle through your fingers
All you can hear outside
Is the roar of a city being raised
That's just the powers that be
Making it safe to graze

Sheep may safely graze
The bluebirds have chased the vultures
From the sky

Sheep may safely graze
The day has merely gone now
And closed its eyes

Sheep may safely graze, my boy
All the fishes are leaping
Into the net

Sheep may safely graze
Yes my darling
This is as good as it gets

Sheep may safely graze
All the lost children will be found
In time

Sheep may safely graze, my boy
Close your eyes
Your daddy is by your side

And you should wake tomorrow
The fences are all torn down
The woods are full of howling beasts
And there ain't nobody around
And everything seems foreign
To your little ways
That's just the Gods above
Making it safe to graze

The fox has its hole
The bird has its nest
But the sun out has no place
To lay his head and graze
