D
Sara the swan let out a big yawn
Em7
and headed to the bathroom sink
        D
In the mirror she stared for a while there
Em7
Seemed like a good place to think
B7
She had a strange feeling Was she dreaming?
Em7
The light so eerily gleaming
            D
There was a knock at the door A funny suit Sammy wore
    G
And on his face an ear to ear grin
         D
He said, "Sara, dear, I could use your help here,
Em7
Please won't you let me in."
Then her mom said,

CHORUS: 

F                     G
"Get out of bed Sara Swan Sleepyhead
C           G6                Am
daylight is burning while the clock hands are turning"
          F                               G
"But this dreaming," Sara said "Is better than what I have
    C            G6           Am
The world when I sleep is the one I want to keep"
    F               G               C
Oh, get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead

VERSE II SAME AS ABOVE: 

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

CHORUS II SAME AS ABOVE:
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

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

VERSE III: 
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,
              F                G
"You best get out of bed, Sara Swan Sleepyhead
C           G6                Am
Daylight is burning while the clock hands are turning!"
F                            G
This time Sara said, "Being awake is best instead
C                G6               Am
The world when I sleep is not the one I want to keep"
       F        G     F                 G
That's how Sara Swan finally got out of bed
     F                  G         C
They no longer call her Sara Swan Sleepyhead

END (SAME AS BRIDGE):

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