Little Sandman Lyrics



 The flowers are all sleeping

Safe in their starlit beds,

And as the moon comes creeping

They nod their fragrant heads.

The drowsy, budding branch lets fall

An air that seems to call:

Sleep a while, sleep a while,

My children, sleep a while.


The birds that sang so bravely

Are silent in the nest,

The sun itself has gravely

Found pillows in the west.

The cricket as he grinds away

Works all night long to say:

Sleep a while, sleep a while,

My children, sleep a while.


The Sandman comes in gliding

Up to each sleepyhead

To see if someone's hiding

Who should have gone to bed

And when a yawning child he spies,

He drops sand in his eyes.

Sleep a while, sleep a while,

My children, sleep a while.
