Peter Koppes — Lullaby lyrics

Lay down your head, o'weary soldier
Lay down your head upon my knee
The fat is warm from here to heaven
It's just the way it's supposed to be

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, laa-la
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your head, o'weary sailor
Lay down your head out on the sea
And ride the waves ??? (high oer'd?) troubles
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your head, o'weary fire
Lay down your head here close to me
The winds of change may blow you wayward
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your head, my little children
Lay down your heads the night is deep
And like a dream the day is over
It's just the way it's supposed to be

Lay down your heads upon the pillows
Lay down your head it's time to sleep
And ??? (raised adorned?) may your true wishes
Be the way they're supposed to be

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm-mmm
It's just the way it's supposed to be
