Barbra Streisand Mother and Child Lyrics

For a little face, that's the biggest yawn
Look at teddy bear yawning too
All those animals sleeping in your bed
Do you really think there'll be room for you?

Time to tuck you in, warm and cozy-like
Are you comfortable little lamb?
Such a sleepy smile you must surely know
All the lovely things you'll be dreaming of

Swinging tree top high, sliding belly down
Eating jelly beans to your heart's delight
In a fairy tale in a wonderland through the night

[+]
I hope that she forgets and leaves my door open
So I can have a little light from the hallway
If I can hear them talking, if I can hear them laughing
I know I won't be frightened, maybe

At night I know that's just my chair, the nice red one
But it looks different than it looks in the daytime
Sometimes I think it's moving, a big enormous monster
A dinosaur or dragon maybe

I close my eyes and there are ghosts and witches
I'm scared a wicked witch will eat me
Oh, how I wish it wasn't always dark at night

For a little face, that's the biggest yawn [+] [sung in duet]
Look at teddy bear yawning too
All those animals sleeping in your bed
Do you really think there'll be room for you?

Time to tuck you in, warm and cozy-like
Are you comfortable little lamb?
Such a sleepy smile you must surely know
All the lovely things you'll be dreaming of

Swinging tree top high, sliding belly down
Eating jelly beans to your heart's delight
In a fairy tale in a wonderland through the night
