Lullabies, oh lullabies

Weren't made for children's

Little cries

Were made for lover's

Shattered lives

So they could lay and die

---

Pretty baby, don't you scream

Simply lay down your head and dream

As the moon sets down its beams

And in the light your blood does gleam

---

Lullabies, oh lullabies

Weren't made for children's

Little cries

Were made for lover's

Shattered lives

So they could lay and die

---

Woman holds him through the night

Dancing in the streaming light

Romancing to his cheep delight

Her crimson heart no longer white

---

Lullabies, oh lullabies

Weren't made for children's

Little cries

Were made for lover's

Shattered lives

So they could lay and die

---

She kissed him coolly so discreet

Stroking softly on the sheet

Suddenly he was complete

Never seeing her deceit

---

Lullabies, oh lullabies

Weren't made for children's

Little cries

Were made for lover's

Shattered lives

so they could lay and die
