Oh my dearest Teddy boy,
You showed me never-ending joy, oh boy
Close your eyes, don't watch the sky
Fall asleep to this lullaby, my boy

When you wake I will be there,
To make sure life is more than fair, oh boy
You stand as a reminder of
The victory of true love, my boy

Oh, sleep you well...
Oh, sleep you well...

Oh my little perfect son
Can't understand what you have done for me
You showed me what my life was worth
Changed every color with your birth, my boy

If many years from now you hear this song
Know I'm next to you, know I'm never gone, oh boy
You are who I'm fighing for
So let them come to our front door, I'll stand

Oh, sleep you well...
Oh, sleep you well...

Sleep you well, my son, we'll be home for you when the battle's done (x3)

    General CommentGod I'm such a sap. This song makes me really sad...

    Basically, it's Remus (and Dora) singing a lullaby to Teddy, making promises they can't keep. They promise to be back when the battle's done, but ...

    I particularly love the lines:
    "If many years from now you hear this song
    Know I'm next to you, know I'm never gone, oh boy"
