Another Lullaby

Refrain: Sleep well, my fair young colleen
You are the prettiest maid I'v ever seen
Sleep well, my fair young lass
I think you are the best

Last night, as I came home
I thought of all the deeds that I have done
I came home, I had a long way
your eyes are closed, so I can say

Your hair is long, your lips are red
But I've to confess: I shared my bed
I shared it often, with many girls
but it wasn't love at all

I was a fool, I was so wrong
And I'm so sorry, that I can't tell you
It would...break your heart and so would mine
And that I couldn't bear.

You're so cute as you're lying there
so beautiful and soft
so here's to you my lullaby
For you are my only love

Sleep well, my fair young colleen
You are the prettiest maid I'v ever seen
Sleep well, my fair young lass
next night I'll sing for you again
