THE SWAN'S LULLABY
(Music:  "Lullaby", Shawn Mullins)

she grew up in an orphanage outside of town
somewhere on a mountain about halfway down
she never knew her parents, they weren't around
even her little brother's just some lost kid she found

now, she runs a bar where people can get drinks and snacks
up on the stage I can tell that she can't let go and she can't relax
and just before she hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby, I sing

everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
rockabye

You'll find the Snack J in Utoland City
down that street about a half a mile
and all the patrons say the owner's so pretty
but she'd be a whole lot prettier if she smiled once in a while
sometimes I just want to backhand Ken
he really should pay her a little attention now and then

But, everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
rockabye

sometimes she's not so sure about this place
it's hard to act like a normal girl and keep a straight face
but every day might well be her last
so she holds on tight to what little life she has

everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye

everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye
everything's gonna be all right
rockabye, rockabye,rockabye, bye, bye
bye, bye
