A Good Boy

A Good Boy Lyrics

I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day, 

I never said an ugly word, but smiled and stuck to play. 


And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood, 

And I am very happy, for I know that I've been good. 


My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair, 

And I must be off to sleepsin-by, and not forget my prayer. 


I know that, till to-morrow I shall see the sun arise, 

No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes. 


But slumber hold me tightly till I waken in the dawn, 

And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.
