'Come on baby no more cry'


Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
My soul unworthy take my heart
That while I sleep my life depart

Now I lay me in my bed
A loaded gun against my head
My soul is barren wasted done
I lay me down a loaded gun

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
That should you die before you wake
It is your soul the lord did take

hush-a-bye, hush-a-bye
I'll sing to you a lullaby
And then we'll both lay down to die
Come on baby no more cry
Mama's got a big surprise
She put it right between your eyes
And no more no more baby cries
Ssshhh now baby go to sleep
I pray the lord your soul to keep
I will not weep, I will not weep
That should you die, Before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
Now I lay me down with you
The Lord can have my own soul too

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
My soul unworthy take my heart
That while I sleep my life depart

    Oh! This is good poem. Yuo are indeed lord your life. I guess that you are beautiful and sexy. I read it five times and felt you have penned an eminence charged strok of exellence sandwiched between repeat performance of first and last stanzas in which with the variable options. Your opinion are impressive and nice so I think that really you'll woman sexy and nice. (Report) Reply

    I read it twice and felt you have penned an emotionally charged stroke of brilliance sandwiched between repeat performance of first and last stanzas in which with the variable options you have looked into the very heart of a troubled soul which leaves its interpretation so variably presentable to readers from the sane to emotionally troubled and back again. Great spontaneous write.

We chaired you through the market-place;

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
