FRIGHTENED TO GO TO SLEEP AGAIN
 
div
 
When ere I go to sleep at night I have such fearful dreams
The things that happen to me make me waken up with screams
Last night I dreamt I went to the works of Mr Kirk
And thought that I was fool enough to go and ask for work.

Chorus: And I'm afraid to go to sleep again
I am, so 'elp me bob
I'm afraid to go to sleep again
For fear I'll get the job.


I dreamt I was in Yankeeland, my misery was complete
I thought I'd got a job to shove the armour on the meat
Upon a lump of potted meat my little boots had tripped
And in the chopping up machine I very nearly slipped.

Chorus: I'm afraid to go to sleep again
Although I'm awful thin
I'm afraid to go to sleep again
In case wake up in a tin.


When Adam in the garden slept he had no thought of strife
Till someone pinched one of his ribs and made of it a wife
And since that day that female rib would never leave his side
They tell as Adam kicked himself and to the serpent cried.

Chorus: I'm afraid to go to sleep again
I am, and that's no fib
I'm afraid to go to sleep for fear
They'd pinch the other rib.
