Sorrow is hooves of rain,
Lull it by..
Lull it by..

Oh, our lives are poor and plain,
Oh, my darling,
lull it by..

We met out on the street
Lull it by
Lull it by
Now in dreams is where we meet,
Oh my darling, lull it by

Do I love you? Yes, I do.
Lull it by
Lull it by..

Wish I could take care of you,
Oh, my darling, lull it by

Blessings on the east and west
And on my bird in your nest
Oh, my darling, lull it by...

When you wake up sad and dim,
Lull it by, lull it by,
Let my song lull you to sleep,
Oh my darling, lull it by.

And if we never meet again,
Lull it by, lull it by,
Hold me in your heart, best friend,
Oh my darling, lull it by.

    My InterpretationHe met this woman on the street. ( a sex worker ) Now, he "meets" her again in a dream. He feels love for herv& caring...
    ( he connected to her emotionally & feels love thru the shared sex. )
    He knows she has extreme sorrow...
    ( like hooves of rain ... * or, that lyriccis incorrect, & he says something else there. ) He wishes: her to be soothed. " Lull it by" & in the moment feels like taking care of her . Good wishes where ever you go.
    Bless the spiritual feeling of my manhood (cock - bird) in your womanhood. (vagina - nest)
    Relax, relax...when sorrowful, & anxious,...relax , drift off, let it go by...Lull it by.
    Think of me with fondness & love...
    We were best friends for a night...
    Relax & peace for you...Lull it by.

    My InterpretationSuch a tender & simple song, just how a lullaby is supposed to be. To gently nurse your sadness to sleep. And it'll be over when you wake up.
