about

I’m away on me hollibobs, so this here tune is recorded WITHOUT THE USE OF A MICROPHONE. Well, I did use a microphone, but using the one in my macbook hardly counts really.

It started off being a lullaby but it may have strayed a little from that. Ah well…

lyrics

Sleepyhead,
What’s going round in your head?
Animals and pretty bowls,
Adventures and seismic events.

Go to sleep,
Try not to weep,
Try not to think too much about,
The mountains you’ll climb
When you’re big.

Though your father doesn’t want you to yet,
And your mother doesn’t want you to … yet.

Excellent,
You’ve managed to,
Turn yourself arse over tit,
Again,
I think you’ll grow up to be an architect.

Sleepyhead,
You’re better off in bed,
At your age you’re likely,
To conquer the empire,
That’s just beyond your fingertips.

Though your father doesn’t want you to yet,
And your mother doesn’t want you to … yet.
