Schwa Lyrics

Cradle and All

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
A long, hard, weary day
and not much left to say
leaves me wishing for a bed
to sleep my pain away.

In long hours of the night,
I cry by candlelight, 
insecure in solitude,
and things just won't get right.

	I got a sturdy chair
	and tables everywhere,
	I even got a roof that keeps the rain out,
	but a bed is where

rivers flow and flowers grow,
mothers call and children go,
when I'm wide awake, to know
I had a bed would help me so.

Now I could build a bed,
but I don't trust my head.
I might get it wrong,
so I'll daydream instead.

	I got a sturdy chair
	and tables everywhere,
	I even got a roof, it keeps the rain out,
	but a bed is where

rivers flow and flowers grow,
mothers call and children go,
when I'm wide awake, you know,
if I had a bed, it would help me so.

"Rock-a-bye baby 
on the treetop,
when the wind blows, 
the cradle will rock,
and when the bough breaks, 
the cradle will fall,
and down will come baby, 
cradle and all."
