The First Star Lullaby (Kim Wallach) It's time you were going to sleep, you're up too late tonight, Oh look, you can see the first star even though it's still light, Let's both make a wish and perhaps it will all come out right And I'll tuck you in--here's a kiss--I love you--good night. Let's watch from the window, the second star cuts through the skies I hear crickets chirping, across the street somebody cries. On clear nights like this it's too easy to take comfort from lies. So I'll tuck you in--here's a kiss--there, close both your eyes. There's the third star and more, and now I see the moon, I can tell someone else is still up, 'cause they're singing a tune That my Mom used to sing--oh you really should go to sleep soon So I'll tuck you in, like a bug, snug in your cocoon. It's time i was going to sleep, I'm up too late tonight. I've watched all the stars growing pale in the early dawn light So I'll make one last wish that you'll grow up and not have to fight And I'll cover you up,--here's a kiss--I love you--goodnight. And I'll tuck you in--here's a kiss--I love you--goodnight. DC
