Oh if only….

A few recent restless (sleepless) nights had me wishing someone would do this for me


If I rock you will you go to sleep – sung by a man of many talents – Jay Laga’aia

If I rock you, will you go to sleep?
If I rock you, will you go to sleep?
You know that I love, the times that we hug
If I rock you, will you go to sleep?

If I whisper, will you close your eyes?
If I whisper, will you close your eyes?
You know that I′ll hum, ’till the morning time comes.
If I whisper, will you close your eyes?

Sunbeams break through and the night melts away
Bright eyed and bushy tailed you’re ready to play
Then nighttime is sprinkling and stars twinkle through
Pjays and teddy bears and dreams wait for you.

If I rock you, will you go to sleep?
Close your eyes there′s no need to weep?
You will come to no harm, safely tucked in my arms
If I rock you, will you go to sleep?

You will come to no harm, safely tucked in my arms
I will rock you till you go to sleep?

  1. I’m probably classed as poor sleeper, but somehow I seem to survive. Occasionally I sleep the entire night through…if it’s a quiet night, like no sirens or heavy wind.
    As the this song my dreams are never about sunbeams or teddy bears!.

  2. new song to me. my answer would be no, I can’t stand to be touched when I am trying to sleep, even the dogs can’t sleep on the bed and we have a california king bed, it was either that or twin beds. I sleep 6 or 6 hour a night most nights unless my mind is in gear and will not stop spinning with thought
