Go To Sleep My Little Buckaroo

Version 1:

Close your sleepy eyes  
My little Buckaroo.
While the light of the western skies,
Is shinin' down on you.
Don't you know it's time for bed,
Another day is through.
So go to sleep,
My little Buckaroo.

Don't you realize,
My little Buckaroo,
That it was from a little acorn,
That the Oak tree grew?
And remember that your dad,
Was once a kid like you.
So go to sleep,
My little Buckaroo.

Soon you're gonna ride the range,
Like grown up cowboys do.
Now it's time that you were roundin' up,
A dream or two.
So go to sleep,
My little Buckaroo.

Version 2:

Close your sleepy eyes,
My little Buckaroo,
While the light of the western skies
Is shining down on you.
Don't you know it's time for bed,
Another day is through
So go to sleep,
My little Buckaroo.

Oo, oo, oo, oo,
Soon you're gonna ride the range
Like grown up cowboys do
Now it's time that you were rounding
Up a dream or two
So go to sleep,
My little Buckaroo
.

Version 3 (offered by one of our readers):

Go to sleep, my little buckaroo,
though the lights of the western sky are shining down on you,
don't you know it's time for bed,
another day is through,
oh, go to sleep, my little buckaroo.

Don't you want to be a cowboy like your daddy?
Ride the range and maybe rope a calf or two
Well you know that all good cowboys need their sleep time,
so, go to sleep, my little buckaroo
ummmmmmm
