Rock-a-bye me old Sunday chair
Sing me a song was a long time back there
I sat on his lap sure felt good to be
Only a child on my papa’s knee

Now Papa would sing a little off key
But he’d fill me with feelings of sweet harmony
Now I’d like to hear that old tune again
And rock to and fro in lullaby land

Doo doo doo da loo Papa would moan
Oh it takes me back to my childhood home
Doo doo doo da loo sweet harmony
Only a child on my papa’s knee

Now sometimes alone well I reminisce
Surrender my thoughts about loved ones I miss
I was so young still my memory
Won’t let me forget how my papa rocked me

Doo doo doo da loo Papa would moan…
