A Cradle Song

by Thomas Dekker

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,

Smiles awake you when you rise.

Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,

And I will sing a lullaby:

Rock them, rock them, lullaby.


Care is heavy, therefore, sleep you;

You are care, and care must keep you;

Sleep, pretty wantons, don not cry,

And I will sing a lullaby:

Rock them, rock them, lullaby.
