It's time for bed
Get jammies on then lay down my head

But I'm not tired,
Can't fall asleep
What shall I do?
Let's count some sheep!

Now we counted up to 10,
Still not asleep.
Let's count again!

Night Night!
Sleep Tight!

When you feel like something’s tickling your nose
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Don’t hold it back, that’s the way it goes
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

Don’t be shy (Achoo!)
Don’t be shy (Achoo!)
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Wipe your nose (Achoo!)
Wipe your nose (Achoo!)
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

When you’re sniffing all the flowers and you’re playing in the sun
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
You can cover up your mouth, wash your hands when you’re done
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

If you’re allergic or you’re sick, or you’re tickled by a feather
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Don’t worry too much, it could just be the weather
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze
