lyrics

DROWSY SLEEPER
(lyrics trad)

Wake up, wake up you drowsy sleeper
Wake up, wake up it is almost the day
How can you bear to sleep and slumber,
When your true love is going away?

Oh, can’t you see those dark clouds a-rising
They’re rising in a billowing dawn
I think we’ll have some fair weather
When those dark clouds are overblown
