The week is nearly over and
the nights are growing long,
the verses turn melodious but
the chorus names the song.
The words sing out a message
in the lines where they belong,
the clock in the ticking corner
is getting ready to join the song.
A lullaby to say goodnight
with sweet relaxing rhythm,
the moon is creeping overhead
beneath silent stars of heaven.
