It's Slumbertime Along the Swanee

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Portrait (2003).

Moon is creeping up behind the levee
You can tell his eyelids are getting mighty heavy
Down in the south lands the sandman's on his way
It's slumbertime along the Swanee

Hush of the evenin' falls on every cabin
Birds are feather nesting and crickets starts to gabbin'
That's when the sandman's busy as a bee
It's slumbertime along the Swanee

Little cold black roses tired from play all tumble into bed
Soon they'll all be dreamin'
About molasses and shortenin' bread
Moon comes high up peeping through the willows
Little those kid darlings are sleeping on their pillows
Down in the south lands, sandman's on his way
It's slumbertime along the Swanee
