​Put My Baby to Bed

This song is by Eleni Mandell and appears on the album Let's Fly a Kite (2014).

Put my baby to bed, I'm on my way
I wanna be there when my baby greets the day
The road is long, I'm coming home
I wanna see my baby waking with the dawn

Put my baby to bed, don't hesitate
Turn back the covers, shut the light, pull down the shade
I'm halfway there, so tell him this
I cannot wait, the sweet embrace, my baby's kiss

Whoa, whoa, whoa, don't make me wait so long
Regretting every night that I'm away from home
Passing lights, that wistful feeling
The open road and all its charms can't hold a candle to my baby's arms

Put my baby to bed, some call it fate
Me and my baby meant to be together each and every day
Yes, I was wrong to go away
I'm coming home, and that is where I'm gonna stay

Whoa, whoa, whoa, don't make me wait so long
Regretting every night that I'm away from home
Passing lights, that wistful feeling
The open road and all its charms can't hold a candle to my baby's arms

Put my baby to bed, don't stay up late
The sooner baby goes to sleep, the sooner baby gets to play
Life can be hard, but we'll be strong
Just me and baby here together from now on
