City Lullaby

Hush now my child,
Hush now my baby child,
What keeps you awake tonight?
Do you hear the cars?
Do you hear the people talking in the late-night bars?
It’s the sound of the city
It’s the beat of the night
And you should be asleep by now, baby
(night night baby)
Yes, you should be asleep by now, baby
(sleep tight baby)
While the city plays on.

Sleep tight baby
Sleep tight baby
Sleep tight baby
Sleep tight baby

Now close your eyes
Now close your tired eyes
The neon is far too bright
Do you hear the trains?
Do you hear the sweeper clearing up the days remains?

It’s the sound of the city
It’s the beat of the night
And you should be asleep by now, baby
(night night baby)
Yes, you should be asleep by now, baby
(sleep tight baby)
Let the city play on.

Bye-bye baby
Sleep tight baby
Bye-bye baby
Sleep tight baby
bye-bye
