"I'm sometimes afraid to think, Daddy, when I am big like you,
And you are old and grey, Daddy, what you and I would do;
If, when we got up to Heaven, and Mother was waiting there,
She shouldn't remember the two she left so sad and so lonely here.
But year by year still sees no change, and so 'twill all be right,
We shall always meet her in our dreams, Daddy, good night, Daddy, good night,
Dear Daddy, dear Daddy, good night, good night."
