I need a lullabye.
Itís one in the morning
and I canít sleep.
The pain is keeping me
wide eyed  and rolling.
I have no Tylenol.
They said no to
my beloved Ibuprofen.
So now I need a lullabye,
and a sleeping pill perhaps.
I could wash it down
with a tall glass of wine
and Iíd be just fine.
I might could find an opioid
just to top things off.
Surely then that lullaby
will send me back to sleep.
Because Iím getting nowhere
counting all these sheep.

Borrowed this from Lulu... http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum115/HTML/000894.html

"Hush little darling, no donít you cry
The stars in the heavens are filling the sky

The darkness is falling, throughout the land
But you neednít worry, Iím holding your hand...as we sing

Soon dreams will come softly, youíll swing with the breeze
The waves will be rolling on a swirling sea...as youíll see

Theyíll be new lands to visit and new friends to meet
All in your comfort, theyíll wait as you sleep...as you sleep

Theyíll be time for tomorrow, now yesterdays gone
Itís whatís in-between time that matters at all...now youíll sleep

Now youíll sleep...now youíll sleep
...now youíre asleep"


Nighty-night...


...just bein' Bluesy

Couple slices of Havarti and chill out.....
You'll feel better for it tomorrow....

Dr. Eric, That sounds a little rich for my blood. How about Sweet Lady from the local vinyard and some Cheetos? Thanks for commenting!
