From the recording Something New

Lyrics

The sun is gone, the moon is high
Time to sing a lullaby
Something old for someone new
Doodle-y doodle-y doo.
A lullaby from your family
Your grandma used to sing it to me
And now, my love, I sing it to you,
Doodle-y doodle-y doo.

It is as simple as can be,
A gentle, lilting melody,
And syllables, so very few,
Just, "Doodle-y doodle-y doo"

Dee doo dee doo dee doodle-y doo
Doo dee doo dee doo doo
Dee doo dee doo dee doodle-y doo
Doodle-y doodle-y doo.

Doodle-y doo doodle-y doo
Doodle-y doo doodle-y doo
Doodle-y doo doodle-y doo
Doodle-y doo doodle-y doo
Tomorrow will be busy, I know
With things to see and places to go
But right now, sleep is all you need do
Dee doodle-y doodle-y doo.
