Paolo benigni hush hush testo



Hush, hush, time to be sleeping


Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping


Dreams of peace and of freedom


So smile in your sleep, bonnie baby


Once our valleys were ringing


With sounds of our children singing


But now sheep bleat till the evening


And shielings stand empty and broken


Hush, hush, time to be sleeping


Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping


Dreams of peace and of freedom


So smile in your sleep, bonnie baby


We stood, our heads bowed in prayer


While factors laid our cottages bare


The flames fired the clear mountain air


And many were dead by the morning


Hush, hush, time to be sleeping


Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping


Dreams of peace and of freedom


So smile in your sleep, bonnie baby


Where was our proud Highland mettle,


Our men once so fearless in battle?


They stand, cowed, huddled like cattle


And wait to be shipped over the ocean


Hush, hush, time to be sleeping


Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping


Dreams of peace and of freedom


So smile in your sleep, bonnie baby


No use of pleading or praying


All hope gone, no hope of staying


Hush, hush, the anchor's a-weighing


Don't cry in your sleep, bonnie baby


Hush, hush, time to be sleeping


Hush, hush, dreams come a-creeping


Dreams of peace and of freedom


So smile in your sleep, bonnie baby


Don't cry in your sleep, bonnie baby
