Every Night

Ev’ry night when I’m heading for bed

I think of the things I could do instead.

I could go for a magic carpet ride.

I could go to Fort Knox and peek inside.

I could play in the garden with a Unicorn.

I could go to New Or’lans and blow my horn.

I could go to the Palace for tea with the Queen….

…and I’d tell all my friends where I had been!

But when it’s time to get into bed

I haven’t done any of the things I said.

So I go to sleep after prayers are read

and angels and sugar plums dance in my head.
