Snuggle down your sleepy head
"It's gettin' late," the Sandman said,
      D      A   E  (F#7)
"Your dreams are waiting

It's daybreak in the land of nod
So get to sleep you little sod,

Your dreams are waiting."

'Cause your Daddy's been a-workin' all day - ay

And if you go and get a glass of water by yourself

You can show us that you're older than you are
