A Lullaby

Dance around your bedroom.
Dance around the moon.
Sing a silly dancing song
and ride a red balloon.

Ride it off to Venus.
Ride if off to Mars.
Sing a silly dancing song
and drift among the stars.

Drift upon a moonbeam.
Drift upon a cloud.
Sing a silly dancing song
and float above the crowd.

Float upon the ocean.
Float upon the deep.
Sing a silly dancing song
and sing yourself to sleep.
