Sleepy Town

 

When the sun goes down

And the street lights come on

And the moon begins to rise

I look at you in your Mama's arms

She's rockin' you to sleepy town

Mama's rockin' you to sleepy town

 

You've got one eye open

And the other half closed

You don't wanna miss a thing

A half a smile but you're mostly yawnin'

It's time to go trro sleepy town

It's time to go to sleepy town

 

            Sleepy town is just a dream away

            A make-believe place where you can play

            Close your eyes and let me lay you down

            It's time to go to sleepy town

            It's time to go to sleepy town

 

There's cars and trucks and airplanes

Baby dolls and playmates too

Hey you can even ride on a merry-go-round

When you go to sleepy town

It's time to go to sleepy town

 

            Sleepy town is just a dream away

            A make-believe place where you can play

            Close your eyes and let me lay you down

            It's time to go to sleepy town

            It's time to go to sleepy town

 

Dogs and cats go to sleepy town

Your pet hampster put him to sleepy town

It's time to go to sleepy town

It's time to go to sleepy town
