Stay awake, don't rest your head
Don't lie down upon your bed
While the moon drifts in the skies
Stay awake, don't close your eyes

Though the world is fast asleep
Though your pillow's soft and deep
You're not sleepy as you seem
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
Stay awake, don't nod and dream

    My Interpretationits a person persuading some one to go to bed with reverse sycology.
    saying it's bedtime everyones sleeping, your pillows soft,its night, you look sleepy but your probably not. so stay up.
    but its a nice sweet lullaby that can sing you to sleep
