"Lover's Lullaby" as written by and Janis / Ian....
Lay down and slumber
Mama's boy is torn asunder
All the fields have gone grey
All the leaves are gone brown
Let me tell you a story
Lay down, I know you're weary
While the star's in the sky
While the moon's on the rise

Lay down and don't you wake 'til morning
Close your eyes and helpless through the night
Lay down and dream of love and glory
This is a lover's lullaby

Once was a magician
Fair he was, and handsome
And he brought to the table
All the fool's gold and wine
He promised us three favors
Said he was the Savior
We drank all his glory
And we borrowed all his time

Lay down and don't you wake 'til morning
Close your eyes and helpless through the night
Lay down and dream of love and glory
This is a lover's lulla

'Bye, my love, sleep tight my love
And softly fade away
The moon was made of old green cheese
To keep the night at bay

Softly now, close your eyes
Lightly will you fade
The moon was made for wakeful boys
To keep the night away

Lay down and don't wake 'til morning
Close your eyes all through the night
Lay down and dream of your glory
This is a lullabye

Lay down and don't wake 'til morning
Close your eyes all through the night
Lay down and dream of your glory
This is a lullabye
This is a lullabye
