"Dance Myself to Sleep"
Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep,
But it’s not so bad
Bert: Ernie, I'm trying to sleep.
Get up off my pillow
And I flip on the light
In the still of the night
Bert: Turn the light off, Ernie!
And then I breathe real deep;
Bert: Don't dance, PLEASE don't dance!
Just ‘a tappin’ my toes
Bert: You're dancing.
I’m a ready to go.
Called the Boogie-Woogie Sheep
Bert: The WHAT?
I dance myself to sleep.
I gently rock-a-by myself across the floor
Bert: What are those sheep doing?
Then I start to snore
Helps me spread the news
Bert: Oh, NOT the bugle.
That I’m a’tappin’ to taps
And a’rarin’ to snooze.
Bert: Oh...you're playing the bugle.
Bert: What are these sheep doing?
Bert: Ernie, these sheep...they're tap dancing...
Bert: Ernie, PLEASE take these sheep out and let me sleep!
Bert: Where did sheep get tap shoes?
Bert: ERNIE, will you PLEASE tell the sheep to put my bed down?!
Bert: Stop, getawaygetawaygetaway.
Bert: Thank you. WAIT, don't pick me up!
Well I’m gettin’ kind of drowsy
So the moment has come
Bert: YOU'RE drowsy?!
To grab my rubber ducky
While the sheep take my chum.
Bert: TAKE your CHUM?!
Time to shuffle off to dreamland,
Got a date to keep
Bert: Where're you taking me?
We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, oh yeah
Bert: Wait, what's going on?
We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, we’re in our jammies
Bert: What are they doing?
We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, and thank you lambies
Bert: They're taking me OUTSIDE!
We’ll dance ourselves to sleep
