"Sandman's Coming" as written by and Randy Newman....
Close your eyes now, little girl
They don't want to hear you cryin'
You never had a chance
You never had a chance

It's a great big dirty world
If they say it ain't, they're lyin'
Sandman's coming soon
You know he's coming soon

Close your eyes and dream
A little dream for you and me
Dream yourself a place where we can go
Baby, you'll never know

Close your eyes now, little girl
Go to sleep, my little baby
Sandman's coming soon
You know he's coming soon

Sandman's coming soon
You know he's coming soon

    TranslationA lullaby from mother to daughter. This was originally written for a character who was about to sell her baby for drug money in Cop Rock, and later repurposed in Faust as a mother singing to her dead infant.
