Evening breeze a sign the moon is in the sky
Little man it's time for bed
Mama's little hero is tired and wants to cry
Come along and rest your weary headLittle man you're crying I know why
You're bloom
Someone took your kiddy car away
Better go to sleep now little man
You've had a busy day
Johnny when you're marbles
Tell your world wiltered
Mama will get new ones right away
Better go to sleep now my little man
You've had a busy dayYou've been playing soldier that battle has been
Won
The enemy is out of sight
Come along dear soldier, put away your gun
The war is over for tonight
Time to stop your scheeming time your day was through
Can you hear the beagle softly saying
Time you should be dreaming my little man
You've had a busy dayYou've been playing soldier that battle has been
Won
The enemy is out of sight
Come along dear soldier, put away your gun
The war is over for tonight
Time to stop your scheeming time your day was through
Can you hear the beagle softly saying
Time you should be dreaming my little man
You've had a busy day

    these lyrics are not in the proper order......this printing needs to be corrected....it's terrible! I used to sing this song to my son who is now 50 years old and he loved it. It has been passed down thru the generations in our family by my Mother.....I hope it will be passed down through many more in our family.
