The sandman told me he's done all he can
The situation calls for more than sand
You been cryin' all night long
Tossin' and turnin' and it's almost dawn

I am here, I'm gonna help you sleep
Count on me instead of countin' sheep
Close your eyes and leave the rest of me

You'll have sweet dreams that'll last all night
An easy feelin' in the mornin' light
Drift away with the touch of the hand
From the sleep tight, goodnight man

Soft and soothin' as a lullaby
I'll kiss the tears from those weary eyes
And in the mornin' you will understand
That you've been touched by the goodnight man

I'll rock you gently like a rollin' wave
Hold you in my arms until you drift away
So just lay back and leave the rest to me

And you'll have sweet dreams that'll last all night
An easy feelin' in the mornin' light
Drift away with the touch of the hand
From the sleep tight, goodnight man

And you'll have sweet dreams that'll last all night
An easy feelin' in the mornin' light
Drift away with the touch of the hand
From the sleep tight, goodnight man

And you'll have sweet dreams that'll last all night
An easy feelin' in the mornin' light
Drift away with the touch of the hand
From the sleep tight, goodnight man
