Sebastian



 



Noel Stookey
1971 Songbirds of Paradise Music

Sebastian arrived in a cardboard suitcase
Sealed with a kiss from his Mom
With a newspaper under his arm
And over his head
Alone in the hall with his back to the wall
You could see he was one of a few
He spoke only when spoken to
And sometimes alone in his bed
Sing sweet Sebastian
Sing the sweetest song
Sing so sweet that while you sleep
Your melody lingers on

Sebastian is led to a black-walled room
Red carpeting covers the floor
Someone is closing the door
And raising the blind
Hiding his eyes so they won't looked surprised
When the hand reaches down for the note
The one that his mother wrote
And tied by a string to his neck
Sing sweet Sebastian
Sing the sweetest song
Sing so sweet that while you sleep
Your melody lingers on

Waiting for the sunrise
And the rest of his life to begin
Sebastian is wearing a grin under his nose
Out on the grass, he can hear it at last
The rush of a bird to his home
Then, while unpacking a comb
He thinks of a song that he knows
Sing sweet Sebastian
Sing the sweetest song
Sing so sweet that while you sleep
Your melody lingers on
Sing sweet Sebastian
Sing the sweetest song
Sing so sweet that while you sleep
Your melody lingers on
