I tried to talk to my baby,
I said "No, no, no, no baby, please don't cry,"
No, no, no baby, please.
All of the leaves come down,
Everytime babies cry.
All of the leaves come down.
I put my arms around my baby,
I said "Hush, hush, hush, hush baby sleep tight, now."
Hush, hush, hush baby sleep.
All of the birds start to sing,
Everytime babies dream.
All of the birds start to sing.
Oh...
Nobody wants to see
Lovers of today happy so sure,
They're going to part.
Nobody wants to be,
With someone so afraid they're going to be the broken heart.
I kissed the eyes of my baby,
I said, "Dream, dream, dream, dream baby all night, long."
Dream, dream, dream all night.
All of the stars in the skies,
Twinkle like my baby's eyes,
All of the stars in the sky.
I tried to talk to my baby.
No, no
Oh, oh
No, no, no
No, I'll never feel like a man in a man's world.
