Little Man, You've Had a Busy Day (Paul Robeson)

Paul Robeson

"Little Man, You've Had a Busy Day" (karaoke)

"Little Man, You've Had a Busy Day" (sheet music)


Evening breezes sighing,

Moon is in the sky.

Little man, it’s time for bed.

Daddy’s little hero

Is tired and wants to cry.

Now, come along and rest your weary head.

 

Little man, you’re crying.

I know why you’re blue.

Someone took your kiddy car away.

Better go to sleep now.

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.

 

Johnny won your marbles.

Tell you what we’ll do.

Dad’ll get you new ones right away.

Better go to sleep now.

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.

 

You’ve been playing soldiers.

The battle has been won.

The enemy is out of sight.

Come along there, soldier,

Put away your gun.

The war is over for tonight.

Time to stop your scheming.

Time your day was through.

Can’t you hear the bugle softly say,

"Time you should be dreaming"?

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.

 

Little man, you’re crying.

I know why you’re blue.

Someone took your kiddy car away.

Better go to sleep now.

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.

 

Johnny won your marbles.

Tell you what we’ll do.

Dad’ll get you new ones right away.

Better go to sleep now.

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.

 

You’ve been playing soldiers.

The battle has been won.

The enemy is out of sight.

Come along there, soldier,

Put away your gun.

The war is over for tonight.

Time to stop your scheming.

Time your day was through.

Can’t you hear the bugle softly say,

"Time you should be dreaming"?

Little man, you’ve had a busy day.
