Listen while I sing you to sleep With a rock 'n' roll lullaby Close your eyes and don't you peep This is a rock 'n' roll lullaby Sandman's gonna get you
Snuggle down your sleepy head It's gettin' late the Sandman said Your dreams are waiting It's daybreak in the land of nod So get to sleep you little sod Your dreams are waiting
And if you get a nightmare Would you go and shake your Ma Cause your Daddy's been a workin' all day And if you go and get a glass of water by yourself You can show us that you're older than you are Show us that you're older
The Sandman's gonna get you
Well you're too small to understand You're living in a wonderland Your dreams are waitin'
If only we could be there too And dream a dream along with you Your dreams are waitin'
Careful that you don't get out the wrong side of the cot Are you gonna be an angel or a devil You're too small to reason what is right and what is wrong Childhood dreams are gone too fast There's no way we can make them last
We'll always love you anyway Any way you are Any way you are
