Three Lullabies

I’ve got Three Lullabies
for your sleepy little eyes
That makes one and a half lullaby
for each eye
in case you’re counting

Counting sheep
in hopes of boring yourself to sleep
to go exploring the dreams that leap
out when you’re snoring the night away
Hey, hey, hey

I’ve got two lullabies
for your pretty little eyes
that blink on and off even though
we both know
you’re not sleepy

But bedtime will be here any minute
I’m sure your bed hopes you’re in it
when it decides to
go to sleep

I had one more lullaby
Something ‘bout a butterfly
But I guess you won’t mind
about what I forgot
since you’re sleeping
