Baby awake is a mischievous elf

Who can keep you busy

In spite of yourself.

 

A rollicking, frolicking, gurgling sprite

Who may sleep half the day

(and cry half the night)

 

And yet when you're humming

a last lullaby

And the sandman has come

and closed each little eye

Gone is the elf, and you find out instead

You've just tucked a tired little angel in bed.
