Saint Judy’s Comet

Oo, little sleepy boy Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime’s long been past
And though I know you’re fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You’re fading fast, oh fading fast

Won’t you run come see St. Judy’s Comet Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy’s Comet Sparkle in your eyes when you awake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Little boy Won’t you lay your body down
Little boy Won’t you close your weary eyes
Ain’t nothing flashing but the fireflies

Well I sang it once and I sang it twice
I’m going to sing it three times more
I’m going to stay ’til your resistance Is overcome
‘Cause if I can’t sing my boy to sleep
Well it makes your famous daddy look so dumb look so dumb

Won’t you run come see St. Judy’s Comet Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy’s Comet Sparkle in your eyes when you awake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Little boy, little boy Won’t you lay your body down
Little boy, little boy Won’t you close your weary eyes
Ain’t nothing flashing but the fireflies

Oo, little sleepy boy Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime’s long been past
And though I know you’re fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You’re fading fast, oh fading fast

I know this song since I was a kid, but of course because English is not my primary language. So I don’t know the meanings. I just like this song until I knew English and began to know that this song is a lullaby. Then recently I searched the lyrics on the internet.

Talk about  lullaby, when I was a kid, my parents never sang me a song when I go to sleep. But they always take me to bed and they always put my pajamas on me.

I have a funny story about this. I have an older sister who is not so much older than me. She’s just 2 years older than me. We have the same bed room. I always wanted my mother to take me to my bed and  put  my pajamas on me. My sister always wanted my father to take her to her bed and put her pajamas on her.

After that I also wanted my mother to say that I am beautiful instead of handsome. And my sister also wanted my father to say that she is handsome instead of beautiful.

But good for her, she grew normal. Having a happy family with her husband and their children.
