Sleepytime Bird

Sleep sleep sleep x2
Go to sleep, my LITTLE CREEP
Born to grow in a big TRASH HEAP
Dream of kettles, pots & pans
Broken bottles & Rusty cans
..Rusty cans...
& lovely nights when the moon & stars
Shine on 1000 abandoned cars
Now hush, hush-a-bye, like a pig in a sty
Thats The GROUCHs Lullaby.
Sleep sleep sleep x2
Go to sleep, my LITTLE SQUIRT
Dream of refuse & dream of dirt
Worn out cartons & oily rags
Sidewalks loaded with GARBAGE bags
Lovely days when the morning shines
On half-a-page of the New York Times
May you always have toys to smash
Broken treasures & a lot of TRASH
& spots on your tie & flies in your pie
Thats The GROUCHs Lullaby.
