Baby, baby, brush the dust of youth from your shoulderBecause the years of fretting days are right behind you nowDon’t return to fields of green where rainbow secrets were toldPlace your ragged doll with all the toys and things and deedsI will show you a game where the winner never winsLet your hair hang down, wear the dress your mother woreLet me sleep beside youLock away your childhood and throw away the keyFor now the streets and city sounds will burn your eyes as coalsWe shall drink the oldest wine and velvet skies will lingerChild, you’re a woman now, your heart and soul are freeI will boldly light that lamp and we shall walk togetherLet your hair hang down, wear the dress your mother woreLet me sleep beside youYour darkened eyes throw mysteryBut your lips are void of historyYou could not imagine that it could happen this way, could youI will give you dreams and I’ll tell you things you’ll like to hearLet your hair hang down, wear the dress your mother woreLet me sleep beside youLet me sleep beside you
