Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky, little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace warm, mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people, everywhere
Listen to what I say
A child, a child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

    General CommentThis is about the birth of Jesus. The star is the star that the 3 kings followed to Bethlehem. The child is the baby Jesus born on Christmas day.

    General CommentLyricist wrote this about the cuban missle crisis and a call for peace. He wove the potential disaster along with the birth of Christ.

    A star, a star, dancing in the night
    With a tail as big as a kite
    THAT ISTHE BOMB IN THE SKY VISUALLY

    Do you hear what I hear
    A song, a song high above the trees
    With a voice as big as the sea
    THAT IS THE NOISE FROM THE DEVICE

    Do you know what I know
    A child, a child shivers in the cold
    Let us bring him silver and gold
    A BLANKET WOULD HAVE WORKED BUT SINCE THE SUN IS BLOCKED AND THE ONLY CURE WILL BE SOMETHING EXPENSIVE AND HARD TO GET

    That why he asks to pray for peace
