Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich; your mama's good lookin'
So hush little baby, don' you cry.

One of these days you're gonna rise up singin'
Gonna spread your wings and take to the sky
Till that days comes ain't nothin' can harm you
With your mama and your daddy standin' by.

Sweet Pisces son, bright Leo uprisin'
A storm-born boy with a tiger's roar
Of travelin' clans - the wide world is your cradle
Across the horizons you are destined to soar

So hush little boy - don' let nothin' distress you
Just close your eyes and settle back secure
Dream of the sky and of mountains below you
And dream of the roads that the world has in store.

Deep winter boy - once born in the northlands
Brimming with stories of summer inside
With Raven's high magic to get to the answers
A tough sturdy soul of oak, steel and pride.

Settle down boys - just another day endin'
And Mama and Daddy not far from your side
Snuggle down boys - let sleep creep upon you
Sail on the dreamscape on the night's quiet tide.
