Five More Minutes

“Wakey wakey rise and shine,
Come on sleepy head
Open your eyes come on wake up,
It’s time to get up from your bed”

“Just five more minutes and I’ll get up,
I’m so comfy in this spot,
It’s nice and warm don’t make me move,
Just five more minutes, is not a lot”

You look at them so peaceful
All tucked up in their bed
You grant them five more minutes
For their sleepy little head

As you head downstairs
You close their bedroom door
Those five minutes seem so pitiful
So you wait five minutes more

After all it’s five more minutes
Where they are safe and sound
No more missiles falling
No more sandy ground

When you think of all they’ve been through
Of all the sights they’ve seen
Those five more precious minutes
Let’s them finish off their dream

Dreams of better places
Than the ones from whence they came
Five more sleepy minutes
Of peace and calm again

Sleep tight brave hearts

Good Night God Bless
