Betty Beep could not sleep
Her mother said, "Try counting sheep"
The lights went out, she lay back down
Then heard her puppy's barking sound
Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof!
She counted barks instead of sheep
The noises never let her sleep
There were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 barks

She flopped back down, tossed around
Then heard her cat's mee-ow-ing sound
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow
She counted mee-ows instead of sheep
The noises never let her sleep
There were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 mee-ows

She flopped back down, tossed around
To baby sister's crying sound waah, waah, waah,
She counted cries instead of sheep
The noises never let her sleep
There were 1, 2, 3 cries

She flopped back down, tossed around
Then heard a trucker's honking sound
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep
She counted beeps instead of sheep
The noises never let her sleep
There were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 beeps

She flopped back down, tossed around
Next came grandpa's snoring sound
Snore, snore, snore, snore, snore, snore,
She counted snores instead of sheep
The noises never let her sleep
There were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 snores

And Betty screamed,
"Seven, plus five, plus three, plus eight, plus six!
I've heard twenty-nine noises now
I need to sleep but I don't know how."
Daddy said, "Here's just the thing."
And he began to softly sing:

Twenty-nine bunnies go bouncin' along
Twenty-nine bunnies bounce
If one of those bunnies should snuggle in bed
Twenty-eight bunnies go bouncin' along
(Similarly...)
Twenty-eight bunnies go bouncin' along...
Twenty-seven bunnies go bouncin' along...
(Counter melody)
Betty's eyelids gently fell as daddy sang this song
The story's done but if you like,
The song goes on and on...
Twenty-six bunnies go bouncin' along...
(Continue pattern as long as desired)
