Lullaby (Anne Lister) cho: Rockabye baby, cradle and all I'll tell you a story as night starts to fall I'll tell you a story as day turns to night All the best fairytales all turn out right. In all of the stories whenever you're crying Someone is passing by, walking or flying Godmothers, fairies or angels on high You can be sure you'll be heard if you cry Frogs are all princes, ugly ducklings are swans, There's magic at hand when all hope is gone Poor folk and honest folk always win through How I wish fairytales all came out true. There's always a way to win through to the treasure There's just enough pain before you find the pleasure If you think that you're beaten, help comes along And it's easy to tell who's right and who's wrong And just when you think that your heart has been broken, A prince comes along with a slipper or token It's you that he's looking for, you that he kisses, Why is it in real life there are so many misses? Hold on to the hand of your sister or brother And keep clear away from your wicked stepmother Children take action, the youngest are strongest Spells by the good fairy always last longest Rags turn to riches, stones turn to jewels There's always a punishment if you are cruel So rockabye baby, until it is morning, You'll find life's not quite like this - this is a warning. copyright Anne Lister BM oct00
