How Do Ya

(Tony Powers)
The night is all around
As you lay your head down
Safe and sound
Upon your pillow
The day all but forgot
Your blankey covers you
Comfortably
You count your sheep
With your wife next to you
The world is just so good
Isn’t it? It can’t be better
And as the sandman comes
Visions of sugar plums
All dance for you
Yes life is good
How do you sleep at nite
While Jack and Jill
Are falling down forever
How do you close your eyes
While Humpty Dumpty
Might be broke forever
Your mommy’s always said
That you’re a sleepy head
And she is always right
Isn’t she
But for the fun and games
You’re always wide awake
And when you’re with
Your friends
The jokes just never end
How do you sleep at nite
While Jack and Jill
Are falling down forever
How do you close your eyes
While Humpty Dumpty
Might be broke forever
Is there some magic
You possess
Some secret we can’t know
As yet
Some switch you flip
To disconnect
Which turns each toad
To a princess
