I'm all cosy, tucked up in bed
Remembering what my mummy said
'Dream of wonderful things,
Of soaring birds with bright coloured wings'
Deeper and deeper I fall asleep
But instead I dream of the sea deep
Of sharks and dolphins and bright coloured fish
Their tails and fins going swish, swish, swish
And then from the deep, deep, deep
Comes a submarine that disturbs my sleep
Faces smiling at the round portholes
Taking pictures of the fish swimming in shoals
I notice a boy 1, 2, 3
And then I realise that one of them is me!
Beep, beep, beep and a kiss on the cheek
Then I hear my mummy speak
'Rise and shine,
It's breakfast time
Get up quick, you don't want to be late,
Your toast is getting cool on the plate.'
