Sleepy


Sleepy is the little fellow
Who runs around in your brain
Pushing your TO SLEEP or NOT TO SLEEP buttons

Now, there is a button in the middle
That may give you trouble
So, it's a good idea to stay clear of it

Now, the name of the button is Drowsy
If, at times, he pushes this one
You can very easily get a Wowsie

If he pushes hard on the TO SLEEP button
You will get a good night's sleep
Perhaps in a dream deep, deep, deep

If he pushes the NOT TO SLEEP button
You may stay up all night
And ask yourself, 'What do I do next? '

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
