lyrics

Child among the weeds,
He needs no beads.
Just sing him a lullaby, lullaby
All the long night through.

An old man in a rocking chair
Will need you there.
So sing him a lullaby, lullaby
All the warm day through.

But a young man in and among your sheets
Will leave a seed and weep.
You'll have to sing him a lullaby, lullaby
Warm day, cold night too.

Fly, bird, fly
On your raven wing.
Take to the sky
And sing for the love of wheeling and turning.

The day has only just begun,
The silver sun is shining.
Wake up, wake up everyone!
The day is only dazzling!

Fly, bird, fly
On your raven wing.
Take to the sky
And sing for the love of wheeling and turning.

Child among the weeds
He needs no beads.
Just sing him a lullaby, lullaby,

Sing for the love of weeping and burning!

And sing for the love of wheeling and turning!
