Rocksteady Lullaby

People say
that there is no mercy these days
What they say
is that everybody goes their own way

But hush your cries
and shut those eyes
Sleep a little dream
and listen wise

For you I will give everything
For you I've got songs to sing
Every night I'll hold you tight
And sing this song to you every night

Oh people say
that we gotta work, no play
What they say
is that there isn't enough time in a day

But hush your cries 
and shut those eyes
Sleep a little dream
and listen wise

With you is where I'll stay
With you come what may
Songs of love let me say
that I want to be with you ever day

So let them say
that it can not be this way
Let them say
that your dreams will go away

Hush your cries
and shut those eyes
Sleep your little dream
and listen wise

You have my love
and I have your love
We have all we ever need
and always will have love
