Irving Berlin – Moonshine Lullaby lyrics

Behind the hill
There's a busy little still
Where your pappy's workin' in the moonlight

Your lovin' pa
Isn't quite within the law
So he's hidin' there behind the hill

Bye bye, baby
Stop your yawnin'
Don't cry, baby
Day will be dawnin'

And when it does
From the mountain where he was
He'll be comin' with a jug of moonshine

So count your sheep
Mama's singin' you to sleep
With a moonshine lullaby

Dream of pappy
Very happy
With his jug of mountain rye

So count your sheep
Mama's singin' you to sleep
With a moonshine lullaby
