Oh, please put down your knitting
'cause you can't close your eyes
Lay down on your bed instead of sitting
Listen to a little lullaby

And you can't close the pages
The Only thing that's keeping you awake
You know cause I might be awhile now
So tell me how much you can take


And I know
that it's not right
To keep you waiting there so long

And I know
that you've been busyin' yourself
while I've been gone

So don't wind up that grandfather clock
and don't wait up for me


Oh, I might stay a little longer
You know it's hard to fight that feeling
To know that you might get too tired
You know it's hard to fight that feeling too


And I know
that it's not right
To keep you waiting there so long

And I know
that you've been busyin' yourself
while I've been gone

So don't wind up that grandfather clock
and don't wait up for me


No, I think I've finally found it
Someplace I would rather be
There's no other way around it
No, no...

Oh, and we can go about our business
And act as if we never met
And you can ask for my forgiveness
But don't expect me to forget


And I know
that it's not right
To keep you waiting there so long

And I know
that you've been busyin' yourself
while I've been gone

So don't wind up that grandfather clock
and don't wait up for me
