The Stars are out, the moon is up...

(Circle Pines, MN)

The stars are out, The moon is up,
Its time to go to bed.
I'm so glad you have a place,
to lay your sleepy head.

Go to sleep my little one,
beneath the evening stars.
You will always have a place,
To lay your sleepy head.

Recording on YouTube NEW
by: Anonymous

You can find a recording of this song on YouTube. Just search "Friends Lullaby" or "Larry Groce Friends Lullaby". I used to listen to the Disney tapes and recently had a little boy. He'll be 9 months in a week, and this song popped in my head from out of the blue today! (Even I listened to the Disney tapes A LOT as a kid and sang-along with the lyrics book). I was able to find a few more of my favorites by Larry Groce, too (I don't think I ever knew it name, and didn't remember they were Disney tapes. We still have some of the Disney tapes, not sure if we have the favorite songs one, and definitely don't know where that lyrics book is.). Thank goodness for YouTube!

These are the original lyrics:

"The stars are out, the moon is up
It's time to go to bed
I'm so glad you have a place
To lay your little head

Have a deep and peaceful sleep
Dream away the hours
When you wake, the sun will come
To smile upon the flowers

Go to sleep my little friend
Beneath the evening stars
You will always have a friend
No matter where you are."

What I remember NEW
by: Anonymous

I sang this to my kids as well. I remembered it beginning as
The sun has gone the moon is up
It’s time to go to bed
As the first line. Either way am so glad to find it again. Now my question is did Kenny Loggins sing it??? Who was the artist that sang it?

The Moon is Out NEW
by: Anonymous

my version:

The moon is out, the stars are bright
Its time to go to bed
I'm so glad you have a place
to lay your little head
Have a deep and peaceful sleep
Dream away the hours
The morning sun will come again
to shine upon the flowers.

Go to to sleep my little one
beneath the evening stars,
you will always have my love,
no matter where you are...
no matter where you are...
no matter where you are :))

piano music NEW
by: Anonymous

I sang this song to all my kids and now they sing it to me when I'm down. We have a new baby on the way and I'm out of state. I'd love to play it on the piano and sing it and record so the new baby will have it from me. So does anyone know of any piano sheet music?

Lullaby NEW
by: Kim Rhodes

I sang this to my kids and grandkids since around 1990. More words than what's posts here.
"The stars are out
The moon is up!
It's time to go to bed.
I'm so glad you have a place
To lay your sleepy head.
Have a deep and peaceful sleep;
Dream away the hours.
When you wake, the sun will come
To smile upon the flowers.

Go to sleep my little friend
Beneath the ev'ning stars!
You will always have a friend
No matter where you are"!

One of my favorites! NEW
by: John

I used to sing this song to my four children. (I changed the next to last line to "I will always love you") They in turn have been singing it to children. Last weekend, three of my grandsons sang it to me! We still have the LP version. Words and music by Larry Groce.

Combo version
by: Frances

Without trying I combined this song with another I believe it came from a Disney album. My daughter sings it to her children now.
The stars are out, the moon is up.
It's time to go to bed.
Close your little weary eyes and rest your sleepy head.
Have a deep and peaceful sleep; dream away the hours; when you wake the sun will come to smile upon flowers.
Go to sleep my little one, beneath the evening star.
You will always have a friend no matter where you are.

The stars are out, the moon is bright....
by: C. Mitchell

I would sing this song to my children when they were little when they would go to bed. The words are different, I also heard it off of a Disney record. My daughter sang it to my granddaughter, hopefully it will keep being handed down. I love this song.

Remembering our son
by: Anonymous

Have a deep and peaceful sleep.....dream away the hours.....and so forth..........most beautiful lullabye I ever sang to my 3 boys. Wish I could get a recording of this song. My youngest son, started singing this at 3 years old with me and we video taped it. I sang it to him for years...well until he left to first grade........he just passed away at 24 and half years old and our hearts are so broken.......a wonderful reminder of his early years. We love him forever.

Yes!
by: Anonymous

My mom used to sing this to me but I couldn't remember all the words to sing it to my newborn son. Found it! But my mom sang "my little angel" instead of little one or little friend.

The stars are out, the moon is up
by: Linda LL

The second verse is this:

Have a deep and peaceful sleep
dream away the hours
when you wake the sun will come
and shine upon your flowers.

I remember the third verse like this"

Go to sleep my little friend
beneath the evening star
you will always have a friend
no matter where you are.

Missing
by: Sue Cherry

The title of the lullaby is Disney's Friend's Lullaby and you left out the middle verse as well as changing the word "Friend" to "One". The entire thing should read as follows:

The stars are out, the moon is up
It's time to go to bed
I'm so glad you have a place
To lay your weary head

Have a deep and peaceful sleep
Dream away the hours
When you wake the sun will rise
To smile upon the flowers

Go to sleep my little friend
Beneath the evening stars
You will always have a friend
No matter where you are.
