Jennifer Hudson - Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight Lyrics




Once there was a way, to get back homeward
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way, to get back homeward
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

(Boy you're gonna carry that weight) oh...
(Carry that weight for a long time) oh...
(Boy you're gonna carry that weight) boy you're gonna carry that weight
(Carry that weight for a long time) carry that weight for a long time

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break, I break, I break down

(Boy you're gonna carry that weight) oh boy... you're gonna carry
I'm gonna carry that weight
(Carry that weight for a long time) carry that weight... a long time
(Boy you're gonna carry that weight) boy...
(Boy you're gonna carry that weight) carry that weight
Carry that weight for a long time

Once there was a way, to get back homeward
Once there was a way, to get back home
And I will sing a lullaby

  1. Livia Hellen

    Once there was a way,
    to get back homeward,
    Once there was a way,
    to get back home
    Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
    and I will sing a lullaby

    Golden slumbers fill your eyes,
    smiles awake you when you rise
    Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
    and I will sing a lullaby

    Once there was a way,
    to get back homeward,
    Once there was a way,
    to get back home
    Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
    and I will sing a lullaby

    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time

    I never give you my pillow,
    I only send you my invitations
    And in the middle of the celebrations,
    I break down

    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time

    Oh yeah, all right,
    are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?

    Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you

    shrill in some places and then overwhelming in others. but that is the nature of the beast when any artist attempts to add their own flavor into a classic. you either love it or not....or end up thinking 'meh'

    Once there was a way,

    Once there was a way,
    to get back home
    Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
    and I will sing a lullaby
    Golden slumbers fill your eyes,
    smiles awake you when you rise
    Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
    and I will sing a lullaby
    Once there was a way,
    to get back homeward,

    and I will sing a lullaby
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    I never give you my pillow,
    I only send you my invitations
    And in the middle of the celebrations,
    I break down
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
    carry that weight for a long time
    Oh yeah, all right,
    are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?
    Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you

    I met the love of my life a few yrs ago. She had a beautiful little baby girl. They didn't have a husband/father. I had even less. And I fell in love with both of them instantly. They both loved this movie, and the soundtrack. They're both gone now. I don't know why I still listen
