Lullabye

Original Artist: Ben Folds & Anna Goodman

Goodnight,
Goodnight sweet baby,
The world has more for you than it seems,
Goodnight,
Goodnight,
Let the moonlight take the lid off your dreams.

We took a small flight in the middle of the night,
From one tiny place to another,
And my parents they remained at the shack with Lorraine,
And my aunt and my Grandpa and brother,

We walked past the tarmac and boarded the craft,
The rain had me chilled to the bones,
Just the three of us took flight that night,
Uncle Richard, Me, and James Earl Jones.

And the pilot he gave me a blanket,
And the tall dark man sang to me in deep rich tones.

Goodnight,
Goodnight sweet baby,
The world has more for you than it seems,
Goodnight,
Goodnight,
Let the moonlight take the lid off your dreams.
