Little man, you're crying, I know why you're blue
Someone took your kiddy car away
Better go to sleep now, little man, you've had a busy day

Johnny won your marbles, tell you what we'll do
Dad'll get you new ones, right away
Better go to sleep now, little man, you've had a busy day

You've been playing soldier, the battle has been won
The enemy is out of sight
Come along there soldier, put away your gun
The war is over for tonight

Time to stop your scheming, time your day was through
Can't you hear the bugle softly say?
Time you should be dreaming, little man, you've had a busy day
Little man, you've had a busy day

    It's about a little boy whose played hard all day with his many imaginary escapades. At the end of a days hard play his daddy tucks him in and comforting him with love through a lullaby.. The child settles into a restful nights sleep.
    Madonna b. Shasta lake ca.
