Lay down now and slumber
Mama's boy is torn asunder
All the fields have gone grey
All the leaves are gone brown

Let me tell you a story
Lay down, I know you're weary
While the stars in the sky
While the moon's on the rise

Lay down and don't you wake 'til mornin'
Close your eyes and helpless through the night
Lay down and dream of love and glory
This is a lover's lullaby

Once was a magician
Fair he was, and handsome
And he brought to the table
All the fool's gold and wine

Well, he promised us three favours
Said he was a savior
We drank all his glory
And we borrowed all his time

Lay down and don't you wake 'til mornin'
Close your eyes and helpless through the night
Lay down and dream of love and glory
This is a lover's lullaby

Bye, my love sleep tight my love
Softly fade away
The moon was made of old green cheese
To keep the night away

Softly now, close your eyes
Lightly will you fade
The moon was made for wakeful boys
To keep the night away

Lay down and don't you wake 'til mornin'
Close your eyes all through the night
Lay down in all your glory
This is a lullaby

Lay down and don't you wake 'til mornin'
Close your eyes all through the night
Lay down in all your glory
This is a lullaby, this is a lullaby
