Nap Time

Story Behind The Song

I'd written an adult version of the Nap Song, and decided the little guys needed their version, too. Re-recorded this song with a few changes in 2014 to have new version on my Lightning Bug Lullabies CD.

Song Description

Nap time was always an important part of our day when I was raising my children. It preserved my sanity, and helped us all not to be crabby. I tried to get inside the head of a baby and "think what they were thinking" about naps when I wrote this song. My favorite verse is #2 when the family is taking a road trip.

I've had my lunch and my story, too.
I played with Snoopy
I'm feelin' droopy
I'm slowly sinkin' in Mama's lap.
I guess it's time to take my nap.

Oh Mama, please, take off my bib.
Lay me down now right in my crib.
I've got my very own thumb for suckin'
All I need is your gentle tuck-in
My diaper is fresh; my tummy is full
I feel the sandman startin' to pull
So sing me a song, a lullabye sweet
It's time for me to go to sleep.

We've been out in the car all day.
The engine's hummin'
I feel it comin'
I'm drippin' drool on my car seat strap
I sure would like to take a nap.

Oh Daddy, please, don't stop the car
Keep on drivin'; let's go real far.
I'm sittin' quiet and I'm not screamin'
I just got in some really fine dreamin'
Don't run out of gas; just keep up the pace
I've got that angel look on my face.
So keep movin' on an hour or two
And I'll keep bein' good for you.

Bathtime's done and the sun is down
I was wired
but now I'm tired
A mommy cuddle would suit me fine
I know it must be my bedtime.

Oh Mommy, Daddy, time for my kiss
Something I just don't wanna miss
I fold my hands and we start our prayin'
It sure has been a wonderful day and
The light's goin' out; I'm fading fast
I want this cozy feeling to last
So tiptoe on out and don't make a peep.
It's time for me to go to sleep.
It's time for me to sleep.

Love this song!Ready for any background music for just about any commercial out there.GREAT WORK!!!
