Too, doo, dup, too
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

You're just a little baby boy
Six months old, lying in your mama's lap
I'm sittin' here thinkin' of a song
I could sing to get you to take a nap

You were born on the part of the river of life where
The water is troubled and deep
This day and time there are not many songs
To sing a little baby to sleep

Too, doo, dup, too
Doo doo doo doo doo

I search my mind for a proper subject
To set down the reason and rhyme
And I got to thinking it might have been better
To be born at some other time

I know you're tired and I know you're weary
And I don't like to see you weep
But there just don't seem to be any songs
Going to sing a little baby to sleep

Too, doo, dup, too
Doo doo doo doo doo

I'll rock your cradle and your mama will croon
That's all the comfort we know
You need a song you can keep on singing
'Cause you've got a long way to go

Faith writes the words and love writes the music
And hope can establish the beat
Your generation might know a song
To sing a little baby to sleep

Too, doo, dup, too
Doo doo doo doo doo
