Listen My Children (And You Shall Hear)

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the strangest thing
They say that I was born to swing
Listen my children and you shall hear
How I got the craze
From rocking in my cradle days

Now all the kids would go to sleep like other sons and daughters
But not for me, my mother had to sing me Muddy Waters
Listen my children, though love is king
I can get along as long as there's a song to swing

Listen my children, though love is king
I can get along
I can get along
I can swing my song
As long as there's a song to swing
As long as there's a song to swing
