Collin Raye Counting Sheep Lyrics

Last updated:

(Robert Ellis Orrall)

I’m counting the cracks on the wall by my bed
‘Cause I can’t get to sleep
And my mother said
To try counting sheep as they’re jumpin’ the fence
But the fence has a hole
And the sheep snuck out
Their tails are wagging
Back and forth in celebration
Farmer Sam is calling out their names
But he’s yelling to loud and I can’t get to sleep
And it’s all on account
Of those runaway sheep
Now they’re out in the woods eating ice-cream and cake
Dancing ‘round and around
That’s why I’m awake
Unless I’m dreaming
This is all to silly to be really happening
They’ve all got party hats
Every one of those sheep has a bell on it’s neck
Going ring-a-ding-ding
I’m a nervous wreck
They’re ringing so loud
Tell me why it won’t stop
A familiar sound
Just like my alarm clock
Hey no wonder
I can hear Mom say good morning
Time for breakfast
Tell me what you dreamed
