Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone

I tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light, enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never, never land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light, enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
(Now I lay me down to sleep)
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
(Pray the Lord my soul to keep)

If I die before I wake
(If I die before I wake)
Pray the Lord, my soul to take
(Pray the Lord, my soul to take)

Hush little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head

Exit light, enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light, enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never, never land, yeah

Oh yeah yeah, yeah oh
We're off to never, never land
(Take my hand)
We're off to never, never land
(Take my hand)

We're off to never, never land
We're off to never, never land
We're off to never, never land
