St. Judy's Comet

ŠPaul Simon, released on There Goes Rhymin' Simon, 1973

.

Oo, little sleepy boy

Do you know what time it is?

Well the hour of your bedtime's long been past

And though I know you're fighting it

I can tell when you rub your eyes

You're fading fast, oh fading fast

.

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet

Roll across the skies

And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake

I long to see St. Judy's Comet

Sparkle in your eyes when you awake

Oh, when you wake, wake

.

Little boy

Won't you lay your body down

Little boy

Won't you close your weary eyes

Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

.

Well I sang it once and I sang it twice

I'm going to sing it three times more

I'm going to stay 'til your resistance

Is overcome

'Cause if I can't sing my boy to sleep

Well it makes your famous daddy look so dumb

look so dumb

.

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet

Roll across the skies

And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake

I long to see St. Judy's Comet

Sparkle in your eyes when you awake

Oh, when you wake, wake

.

Little boy, little boy

Won't you lay your body down

Little boy, little boy

Won't you close your weary eyes

Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

.

Oo, little sleepy boy

Do you know what time it is?

Well the hour of your bedtime's long been past

And though I know you're fighting it

I can tell when you rub your eyes

You're fading fast, oh fading fast
