I will dress your eyelids
   Am    C
W' dimes upon your eyes
Am       C
Lay you close to water
Am       C
Green your grave will rise

Go to sleep now, little ugly

Go to sleep now, you little fool

Forty winking in the belfry

Forget you once had sweethearts
They've forgotten you
Think you not on parents
They've forgotten too 
Go to sleep now, little ugly
Go to sleep now, you little fool
Forty winking in the belfry
You'll not feel the drowning
You'll not feel the drowning 
Hear you now the captain
Heave his sorrow'd cry
The weight upon your eyelids
Is dimes laid on your eyes
