Download “Sweet Dreams (1).mp3

(Want the sheet music?)

Say goodnight.

Time for bed.

Get the light.

Rest your head.

Close your eyes.

Go to sleep

And dream . . .

Hush-a-by baby

On the tree top,

When the wind blows

The cradle will rock.

When the bough breaks,

The cradle will fall . . .

(The title of this song is now a retronym.

It’s now called “Sweet Dreams (1)”

instead of just “Sweet Dreams,”

because three years later, I would

write “Sweet Dreams (2)” . . .)
