When I wake in the middle of the night
And keep you up til the dawning light
To make you sad is not my intent
No malice or spite towards you is meant.
And when I keep you from your dreaming
With my crescendo-building screaming
There’s just something that I need
A nice clean nappy or a nourishing feed.
I can see that you want to be snoozing
I know there’s sleep that you’re losing
I really don’t mean to be any trouble
It’s just that I’d love a nice, warm cuddle.
And now it’s almost half-past four
You’re even more sleepy than before
But I just haven’t found my rhythm yet
A routine for night and day not set.
And there’s so much that I want to say
But the words have still to find their way
One day though, I’ll tell you I’m glad
That I have you two as my mum and dad.
