Goodbye Sleep, it’s been fun,
but tonight I’ll forget when I ever had some.
For the nights are longer and the days are short,
and baby’s awake for much more than I thought.
Farewell Sleep, I hope you return,
but until you do I’ll just have to learn
to get through the night without you there,
for baby’s awake more often I fear.
Cheerio Sleep, it was good to meet you,
but for now I must say Adieu, sweet Adieu.
Au revoir for a while, so long and god-speed.
As long as baby’s awake it’s you that I need.
For all the mummies whose babies are certain to be awake tonight as the clocks go back tonight in the UK!
