Say your prayers, little one
Don’t forget, my son
To include everyone
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes...

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight...

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land...

Something’s wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon’s fire
And of things that will bite...

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight...

Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land...

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the Lord my soul to take
Hush little baby, don’t say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It’s just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head...

Exit: light
Enter: night
Grain of sand
Exit: light
Enter: night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land...
