lyrics

Close your eyes, little rover, close your eyes
'Cause it's getting dark and you know you're getting tired
You've been roving all day long
And a-singing your roving song
So close your eyes, little rover, close your eyes

Rest your head, little rover, rest your head
Let the dust fall down around you like a blanket red
You've been working oh so hard
And you've traveled oh so far
So rest your head, little rover, rest your head

Go to sleep, little rover, go to sleep
Just fall into those dreams so sweet and deep
Your sister's waiting there for you
And we'll keep working while you do
So go to sleep, little rover, go to sleep
