Sleep, lover, sleep.
In my arms gently sleep,
Close thine eyes,
Close them well.
Sleep my loved one,
gently do.

Scatter sandman
joy and gladness.
Bring sweet dreams,
love and bliss.

Give sweet happiness,
joy and cheerfulness.
Bring sweet dreams,
love and bliss.

Sleep my darling,
sleep thee well.
Close thine eyes, yes,
Close them well.
