Sing Me to Sleep, Dear Mammy Lyrics

2016 Broadway revival
Shuffle Along the Musical - Sing Me to Sleep, Dear Mammy Lyrics

HARRY WALTON:
MAMMY, JIM FEELING TIRED AND WEARY,
MY HEART IN HEAVY LADEN, TOO,
MAMMY, THERE'S ONLY ONE WHO CAN CHEER ME,
AND THAT ONLY ONE IS YOU

CHORUS:
SO WON'T YOU SING ME TO SLEEP, DEAR MAMMY,
WITH A "HUSH-A-BYE, OH, PICKANINNY TUNE"
JUST LIKE YOU DID IN ALABAMY,
MAMMY LET ME HEAR YOU CROON
"GO TO SLEEP, MA HONEY, SANDMAN'S COMING SOON,
HE'S WATCHING YOU UP YONDER IN THE MOON."
THEN WHEN I FALL TO SLEEP IN YOUR DEAR ARMS,
I KNOW I'M SAFE FROM EARTHLY HARMS.
IF YOU WILL SING ME TO SLEEP, DEAR MAMMY,
WITH A "HUSH-A-BYE, OH, PICKANINNY TUNE"
