"Sing Me to Sleep" as written by Richard Barone and Jill Sobule....
Six in the morning
Been up since three
I wish I had somebody to rock me to sleep

The sun won't be melting these snowy white sheets
Wish I had somebody to rock me to sleep

Rock me to sleep
Rock me to sleep
Wish I had somebody to rock me to sleep

The book on the bedstand
The little TV
The drink and the ashtray
Keep watch over me
The long dark shadows of the sycamore tree
Wave and keep me company
Keep me company
Company

The long dark hands of the sycamore tree
Take me in your arms and hold me
Till I close my eyes
Till the streetlamps die
And the traffic rumbles
Rock me to sleep
Rock me to sleep

I wish I had my mother
I wish I had my father back
I wish I had my baby

I wish I had somebody to rock me to sleep
