Sandman's coming
(Randy Newman)
Close your eyes now little girl
They don't want to hear you cryin'
You never had a chance,
you never had a chance
It's a great big dirty world
If they say it ain't they're lyin'
Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon
Close your eyes and dream
A little dream for you and me
Dream yourself a place where we can go
Baby you'll never know
Close your eyes now little girl
Go to sleep my little baby
Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon
Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon
