I really know why your crying
by: Jim Callahan

I sang this song to my two kids 30 & 40 years ago

I know why your crying and I know why your blue someone’s took your kiddy car away. Better go to sleep now little boy you’ve had a busy day,

You’ve been playing soldiers the battle has been won the enemy is out of site, better close your eyes now little boy you’ve had a busy day.

Johnny stole your marbles I'll tell you what will do your Dad will buy you new ones right away, Better go to sleep now little boy you’ve had a busy day.
"I added"
Close your eyes and dream for me of all the things to be, dream for me my little boy its time to go to sleep.

Girl version! NEW

My mom and grandma always used to sing this to me, except they would sing,

"I know why you're crying, I know why you're blue
Someone took your teddy bear away
Better go to sleep now,
little girl you've had a busy day"

I think they kept the rest of the song the same, though. Does anyone know the origins of this song? I imagine it might have come from the World War I era.

You’ve been playing soldiers the battle has been won the enemy is out of site better close your eyes now little man you’ve had a busy day. ( not sure on the last few words?)
My nan used to sing this to me when I was small, that would be about 50+ years ago.
