Goodnight, time to call it a day 
Sleep tight, dream your troubles away 
Goodnight, in spite of any sorrow 
There's a brand new day on it's way tomorrow 
Someday, all your dreams will come true 
Someway, for me and you 
So close your eyes and dream of it my darling 
Till then goodnight, goodnight, sleep tight 

Won't you play the music so the cradle can rock 
To a lullaby in ragtime 
Sleepy hands are creeping to the end of the clock 
Play a lullaby in ragtime 
You can tell the sandman is on his way 
By the way that they play 
As still as the trill of a thrush 
In a twilight hush 
So you can hear 
The rhythm of the river on the side of the boat 
As you sail away to dreamland 
High above the moon you hear a silvery note 
As the sand man takes your hand 
So rock-a-bye my baby 
Don't you cry my baby 
Sleepy time is nigh 
Won't you rock me to a ragtime lullaby 

Now comes the hard part, baby. 
Do you suppose you can sing "Five Pennies" while 
Pops and I sing something else? 
Sure, I can sing as good as he can. 
And who can't? 

This little penny is to wish on 
And make your wishes come true 
This little penny is to dream on 
Dream of all you can do 
This little is a dancing penny 
See how it glitters and it glows 
Bright as a whistle 
Light as a thistle 
Quick, quick as a wink 
Up on it's twinkling toes 
This little penny is to laugh on 
To see that tears never fall 
This this little penny 
Is the last little penny 
Most important of all 
For this penny is to love on 
And where love is, heaven is there 
So with just five pennies, if they're these five pennies 
You'll be a millionaire 
For this penny is to love on 
And where love is, heaven is there 
So with just five pennies, if they're these five pennies 
You'll be a millionaire
