I hope you never hear this
I hope you’re fast asleep
I hope your eyelids flutter
With every colorful dream
I hope you teach my sister
To love her lack of sleep
I hope you melt her mister
To puddles at your feet

I hope you grow up slowly
So I have time to see
How cells divide and conquer
How one and one make three
I hope you fight your mama
And throw all the food that she wants you to eat
I hope you yell at daddy
When all you need
All you both need is sleep

I hope find somebody
To love you blind and young
But when they up and leave you
I know you’ll plod along
I hope you scare your father
When you leave the place you’re from
Your mother waving goodbye
What a woman you’ll become

So go to sleep
Emmy you need
Plenty of energy
