I tuck you in and give you Bear,
As I brush my lips to your hair.
One at a time, I say goodnight,
Before I leave and turn out the light.
It’s the end of another fun-packed day,
“Now it’s sleepy-time,” I say.
“Please get some rest, both of you,”
And I head downstairs to have a brew.
As soon as I set foot outside the door,
I hear feet patter across the floor.
I make my escape quick and fast,
Hoping the naughtiness won’t last.
Before I reach the bottom stair,
I’ve already been beaten to it by Bear,
Flung over the stair gate, along with Dog,
And your favourite book about a dragon called Zog.
“Come on, back to bed, please!” I cry,
As I kiss my hot cup of tea goodbye.
Micky Mouse lands on my head;
There’s no way they’re ready to go to bed.
