Mama Sings (Samuel Hoffenstein) Go to sleep, my little oaf Mama's darling sugarloaf. Go to sleep and stay that way For, perhaps, a night and day. I'm no angel up above Don't abuse my motherlove. I can stand so much. And then Mama seeks maturer men. And papa's friend is waiting now To plant a horn on papa's brow. So sleep, my darling. Sleep, my own For if you bawl, you bawl alone. Sings well to Aura Lee (Love Me Tender, to the Philistines) RG RG
