Perry Como Kentucky Babe Lyrics

Last updated: 12/26/2013 07:17:12 AM

Skeeters am a hummin' on de honeysuckle vine.
Sleep Kentucky Babe!
Sandman am a common' to dis little coon of mine.
Sleep Kentucky Babe!
Silv'ry moon am shinin' in de heabens up above.
Bobolink am pinin' fo' his little lady love.
You is mighty lucky. Babe of old Kentucky.
Close your eyes in sleep.

CHORUS
Fly away, la la. fly away Kentucky Babe, fly away to rest.
Fly away, la la, lay your teensy wooly head on your mammy's breast.
Mmm…, mmm…., mmm….
Mmm…, mmm…., mmm….
Close your eyes in sleep.


Daddy's in the cane-brake wid his little dog and gun.
Sleep Kentucky Babe!
Possum fo' yo' breakfast when yo sleeping' time is done.
Sleep Kentucky Babe!
Bogie man'll ketch yo' sure, unless yo' close yo' eyes,
Waitin' jes' outside de do' to take yo' by surprise.
Bes' be keeping' shady, little colored lady,
Close your eyes in sleep.

CHORUS
