lyrics

it's getting late. time to go to sleep.
bright moon in the sky, shines on a dark streets.
such a silent night, baby doesn't cry
John at the piano, sings a lullaby

all the colors in your eyes
red and yellow green and white
birds are turning in the sky
and the hills and mountains rise

wisdom makes the Mother smile
on the lakes and on the land
daddy takes the baby's hand
papa takes the other hand

they took little baby out, to the park to play
went for a ride in the big red car, got ice cream on the way.
let's have a little wine, before we hit the hay
John and Richard raise a glass, to celebrate a lovely day

all the colors in your eyes
red and yellow green and white
birds are turning in the sky
and the hills and mountains rise
