Daddy, Daddy

Daddy, Daddy
Sleep is slow,
And dreams are few.
Sing to a younger me
And hear myself bawl.
Daddy, Daddy
Ready the car
I’ll sleep no more.
Or maybe I can wake up in the zoo
My animals and You,
Happy and true.
Daddy, Daddy
My books bring me mystery,
They draw me in.
I feel like a hero
With no-one to save but I.

I,
I was waiting for the morning print,
When you were away.
I was waiting for a good thing,
To show you how I spent my day.
Daddy, Daddy
Now I’m up,
And my fingers are big.
My dreams are many,
And my sleep is quick.
I read of men and women
Understand less than I can pretend.
Daddy, Daddy
Take me to the zoo,
You and me and our animals,
Happy and true.
Daddy, Daddy
Sing me some blues.
