Lyrics & Info

Performances (1)

Sara the swan 
Let out a big yawn 
and headed to the bathroom sink

In the mirror she stared 
for a while there 
Seemed like a good place to think

She had a strange feeling 
Was she dreaming? 
The light so eerily gleaming

There was a knock at the door 
A funny suit Sammy wore 
And on his face an ear to ear grin

He said, "Sara, dear 
I could use your help here, 
Please won't you let me in."

Then her mom said,

"Get out of bed Sara Swan Sleepyhead 
daylight is burning while the clock hands are turning" 
"But this dreaming," Sara said 
"Is better than what I have 
The world when I sleep is the one I want to keep" 
Oh, get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead

Back in her dream 
She went running 
to answer the door lickity-split

And still standing by 
With a patch on his eye 
Stood Sammy all of 2 foot 6

Adventure reflected in the pools of his eyes 
She let out an audible sigh 
With the sword in his hand, 
Sammy gave the command 
Before she could count to ten

Pirates were there 
with knots and beads in their hair 
like rats they came pouring in

Then her mom said, 
"Get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead 
Daylight is burning whiel the clock hands are turning" 
"But this dreaming," Sara said, "Is better than what I have 
The world when I sleep is the one I want to keep" 
Oh! Get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead

Back in Dreamland 
Sammy took her hand 
And led her to a safe hiding place 
But the coast was not clear 
And Sara Swan she could hear 
The heavy boot steps of someone giving chase 
Her heart was beating fast 
She feared it would jump right out of her chest

She was confronted 
With a sword that was pointed 
That no longer seemed like play

She let out a scream, said 
"But this is just a dream!"

And that's when she heard the pirate say, 
"You best get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead 
Daylight is burning 
While the clock hands are turning!"

This time Sara said, 
"Being awake is best instead 
The world when I sleep is not the one I want to keep" 
That's how Sara Swan finally got out of bed 
They no longer call her Sara Swan Sleepyhead

She got out of bed 
Sara the Swan 
Does not lay all day in bed 
She gets up instead
