Lyrics

Sleep, Sleep, Sleep.
How we love to sleep
At the close of the day
When the joys of the day fade away and the mem'ries sweet
Of the day repeat
In our dreams they creep
While we sleep, sleep, sleep.

It seems that daytime was just made for laughter and song.
Eve'ning brings romance to lovers as they stroll along
Nighttime brings rest to the weary
Sooths all the hearts that are dreary
Leaves us alone with our day dreams
Brings back sweet golden love dreams while we sleep, sleep, sleep.

How we love to sleep
At the close of day
When the joys of the day fade away and the mem'ries sweet
Of the day repeat
In our dreams they creep
While we sleep, sleep, sleep.
