The sun has gone from the shining skies
The dandelions have closed their eyes
The stars are lighting their lamps to see
See if babes and squirrels and birds and bees
Are sound asleep as they should be

The squirrel keeps warm in his furs of gray
'Neath feathers, birds are all tucked away
In yellow jackets, the bees sleep tight
And they cuddle close through the chilly night
But my baby's snug in her gown of white

The squirrel nests in a big oak tree
He finds a hole in the trunk, you see
The robin's home is in a nest overhead,
And the bees, they nest in a hive instead
But my baby's nest is her little bed
