Lyrics

In the summer when the childrens' hearts are beating
And the night comes down on them
When it's cold you can hear them creeping
While the frost is out to bite our men
Hear them cry

Rock-a-bye baby he's a gun
Look at the black sheep what have you done
Rock-a-bye baby she's a gun
(down will come baby cradle and all)
Rock-a-bye baby he's a gun
Look at the black sheep what have you done
Rock-a-bye baby she's a gun
(no longer a baby waiting to fall)

There's a magic in the forest new to evening
And the fight belongs to him
When it's cold you can hear him breathing
Still the light comes once again
Hear him sigh

Rock-a-bye baby he's a gun
Look at the black sheep what have you done
Rock-a-bye baby she's a gun
(down will come baby cradle and all)
Rock-a-bye baby he's a guni
Look at the black sheep what have you done
Rock-a-bye baby she's a guni
(no longer a baby waiting to fall)

Hear him cry
Rock-a-bye baby he's a gun
Look at the black sheep what have you done
Rock-a-bye baby she's a gun
(down will come baby cradle and all),
Rock-a-bye baby he was a gun
Now a black sheep what have you won
Rock-a-bye baby she was a guni
No longer a baby waiting to fall

Can't you see the night comes down on them.
