Close your eyes and go to sleep
There’s a hundred tasks undone but they can wait
And while you sleep, don’t dream of me
Like those hundred tasks I’m waiting for you anyway
And like I said, the ragged times ahead
Hold off a little longer while you dream
The mice are blind, they scuttle round the skirting board
They don’t know much but they know as much as me

Life’s ok in a cheap-precious way
I figured that one out last Saturday
You shouldn’t set your face against the world just yet
It may just want to kiss you anyway
Not to say that you should go the other way
The monsters in your books are not the half

That’s all the wisdom I know
Goodnight now, glad I made you laugh
