"SIESTA STREET"

Verse 1
Is going to sleep sometimes hard for you
Thinking of things that you'd rather do?
If that's how you feel, I understand,
'Cause I feel the same way, too.

Though I am quiet, and it is late,
My mind keeps on thinking of being awake.
My thoughts keep on spinning, they won't slow down.
Do you feel the same way, too?

Bridge 1
Well, I have a friend who told me
That an easy way to be sleepy
Is not to think of things that are speedy,
But to think of things that are dreamy
To think about some sleepy thoughts:

Chorus 1
A golden moon [a golden moon], a starry sky [a starry sky]
A yawn, a snore [good night, senior], a lullaby [by-by],
A whisper [ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo], my tired eyes [ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo],
A bedtime kiss, and sweet, "Good night." [A sweet, "Good night."]
These are thoughts to slow you down,
They'll help you go to sleep.
Think of the many sleepy thoughts
That lead to Siesta Street.

Verse 2
I should be real good now at going to sleep,
I do it so often, each day of the week.
But when I lie down, I'm moving around.
Does this ever happen to you?

I'm running and playing inside my head,
This keeps me awake when I go to bed.
I want to get up, but I must stay down.
Does this ever happen to you?

Bridge 2
Listen to what my friend told me
How easy it is to be sleepy:
It's not to think of things that are busy
But to think of things that are cozy
To think about some sleepy thoughts:

Chorus 2
A drowsy dog [a drowsy dog], a weary whale [a weary whale],
A dozing deer [a dozing deer], a ship with sails [a ship with sails].
A cozy hug [ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo], a fairy tale [once upon a time],
A song of love from Mrs. Nightingale,
These are thoughts to slow you down,
They'll help you go to sleep.
Think of the many sleepy thoughts
That lead to Siesta Street,
Lead to Siesta Street.
