I like lazing in the midday sun
Doing nothing is having fun, I said
Oh Lord, I love lazing in your midday sun
And I like doing my thing all night
With my baby that suits me right, I said
Come on baby do your thing all night with me.

And I like swimming in the deep blue sea,
I like swimming but it don't like me, I said
Come on baby let me take you to the deep blue sea
Cause I'm gonna let my hair hang down
I'm gonna let my skin turn brown, I said
Come on baby let your hair hang down with me.

Wake me up if you're going down
And I'll put things right
You might get weary sometimes
I give you my word you're gonna sleep tonight
I said oh come closer in my arms
Cause I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.
Oh I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.

Try me out if you're still in doubt
Because it's up to you
If I should fail you sometimes
It's not because I wanted to make you blue
Oh dear no, come closer in my arms
Cause I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues
Oh I'm gonna sing you
My rock-a-bye baby blues.
