Little Man
You've Had a Busy Day
(1946 version)

( Evenin' breeze is sighin', moon is in the sky,
time for daddy's little man to hear his lullaby . . . )

Little man you're cryin', 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 will get you new ones right away,
Better go to sleep now,
Little man you've had a busy day . . .

You've been playin' soldier, 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 you stop your schemin', time your day was through,
Can't you hear the bugle softly say?
Time you should be dreamin',
Little man you've had a busy day . . .

< instrumental bridge >

Time you should be dreaming,
Little man you've had a busy day . . .

( Rest your weary little head . . . )
