I can’t sleep.
Have you tried counting sheep?
Yes, I’ve tried.

I still can’t sleep. 
Have you tried sinking deep?
Yes, I’ve tried.

I know you have cried
because I’m not by your side.
I’m not asleep.
Look on the bright side -
put your worries aside.
I won’t make a peep.

I have a promise to keep
so I’ll try counting sheep.
Maybe you’ll let me sleep.
