Getting Children To Sleep ... ARRRGH!!

[Ok, it's not a showtune, but it IS from a musical animated movie!
Sung to the tune of "Somewhere Out There"]

Somewhere out there...
beneath the pale moonlight...
Someone's thinking children
will go to sleep tonight.

Somewhere out there...
someone's saying a prayer...
That their meds will kick in soon
And children will sleep right there [pointing]...

And even though we know
How very wrong we were to hope
It helps to know that there are others
Knotting that same rope*

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It scares me to think they are sleeping with one open eye!

Somewhere out there
Prozac can see us through...
Then, we'll get some sleep

Somewhere out there
Out where
Kids sleep true!

*['when you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hold on!']


It's 11:30 p.m. here. I just scraped vomit off my shoulder, have another "baby" (12 years old) in the tub because HE can't sleep. Two are already down, thank small gods. And I catch myself singing your song.

Thanks LaVeda for your great creativity. It's put a smile on my sleep-deprived face.

You're welcome... and I hope you and the children feel better soon :-)
