Lyrics

Say your prayers, little one
Donít forget, my son
To include everyone
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
Weíre off to never never land

Somethingís wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they arenít of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragonís fire
And of things that will bite

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
Weíre off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the Lord my soul to take
Hush little baby, donít say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
Itís just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head

Exit: light
Enter: night
Grain of sand
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
Weíre off to never never land
