Whistle-----------

1
Go to sleep, soon be morning,
I'll take you to your friend.
Son, stay in bed, don't creep down,
Don't send me round the bend!

Whistle-----------

2
Choose your spot, hold your blanket,
Close your eyes - sure you can!
Son, before you know, all too soon,
You will be a big man.

Bridge 1
Play your games again tomorrow,
They give you strength to understand.
You'd get bored down with the grown-ups,
Take a tip from your dad.

3
Just cuddle Ted - don't you wake him!
Make less noise - sure you can!
Son, before you know, your childhood's gone,
Not so hot being a big man!

Bridge 2
Stay a child as long as you can
'cause Time it wields its callous hand.
Don't be hasty to get older,
Lend yourself to Life's plan.

4
My naïve child - he's asleep now!
I can breathe once again!
Sons - they grow up all too soon to become big men.

Whistle......
Mm
Whistle......
Mm
