Time 2 sleep but I'm not sleepy yet
Close my eyes but dreamland's not a sure bet
Don't go, stay with me, tell me a bedtime story
Long ago there was a princess, she was so fine
She was all alone 4 her prince, he never had no time
U can hear her crying, "Stay with me, tell me a bedtime story"
Stay with me
Please talk 2 me
Far away I want 2 go and start my life all over
Instead, I'll stay, maybe I'll find a 4-leaf clover
Stay with me, tell me a bedtime story, yeah
Stay with me, tell me a bedtime story
