WHY DID THEY TAKE HEAVEN

LYRIC:

ROCKABYE BABY ON THE TREETOP

WHEN THE WIND BLOWS

THE CRADLE WILL ROCK

WHEN THE BOW BREAKS

THE CRADLE WILL FALL

DOWN WILL COME BABY

CRADLE AND ALL

PLEASE MOTHER TELL ME A STORY

OH PLEASE MOTHER TELL ME A STORY

1ST VERSE:

PLEASE MOTHER TELL ME A STORY

ABOUT THE WORLD WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG

WHEN THE GRASS WAS GREEN ALL THE BIRDS YOU’VE

AND THE BEAUTIFUL SONGS THEY SUNG

WOULD YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE CORNFIELD

WHERE THE CHILDREN USED TO PLAY

WHEN TREES HAD LEAVES AND THE SUMMER BREEZE

WOULD BLOW THE DARK CLOUDS AWAY

CHORUS:

BUT IF EVERYTHING YOU TELL ME WAS JUST LIKE YOU SAY

THEN WHY DID THEY TAKE HEAVEN AND THROW IT ALL AWAY

WHY DID THEY TAKE HEAVEN AND THROW IT ALL AWAY

2ND VERSE:

PLEASE MOTHER TELL ME A STORY

ABOUT THE VALLEYS AND THE HILLS

WHERE YOU COULD WALK FOR A HUNDRED MILES

WITHOUT BEING ILL

IS IT TRUE YOU COULD DRINK RAIN WATER

THERE WERE FISHES IN THE SEA

AND OTHER CREATURES ON THIS WORLD

APART FROM YOU AND ME

CHORUS:

BUT IF EVERYTHIG YOU TELL ME————

3RD VERSE:

DEAR MOTHER NOW YOUR CRYING

I SEE A TEARDROP IN YOUR EYE

DOES IT MAKE YOU SAD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT

THOSE BEAUTIFUL DAYS GONE BY

WIPE AWAY YOUR TEARS NOW

SOON WE’LL ALL BE GONE

I CAN HEAR MY DADDY CALLING ME

I KNOW IT WON’T BE LONG

CHORUS:

BUT IF EVERYTHIG YOU TELL ME————-

WHY DID THEY TAKE HEAVEN AND THROW IT ALL AWAY
