Climb up on my knee, sonny boy
Though you're only three, sonny boy
You've no way of knowing
There's no way of showing
What you mean to me, sonny boy

When there are grey skies
I don't mind the grey skies
You make them blue, sonny boy
Friends may forsake me
Let 'em all foresake me
I still have you, sonny boy

You're sent from a heaven
And I know your worth
You made a heaven
For me, here on earth

When I'm old and grey, dear
Promise you won't stray, dear
For I love you so, sonny boy

When there are grey skies
I don't, I don't mind grey skies
You make 'em blue, sonny boy
Friends, friends may forsake me
Let 'em all, let 'em all forsake me
I still have you, sonny boy

You're sent from a heaven
And I know your worth
You've made a heaven
For me, here on earth

And the angels grew lonely
Took you because they were lonely
I'm lonely too, sonny boy
