"Sound-A-Sleep" as written by and Chris Stein Deborah Harry....
Close your eyes and you will see
Microflashing neon lights
Open your eyes and you will see
It still looks like the same thing
Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep
Close your eyes and you will see
The sound-a-sleep
I want to go
I want to grow
I want to go down to go to sleep
Your frame of reference
Is my swimming pool
My mind swimming pool
Still looks like the China Sea
Pool to sea
And finally
The sound-a-sleep
Feel the moist sense in your face
Twist relax remembering
Everything that went down
And will go down
I want to go down
To sleep
Insomnia no sleep disease
Petty's parking feed me please
Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep

    General CommentI am a hugh BLondie fan from the time I was very young. My older brother used to listen to her and I got hooked. This is special to me because when I had my kids I would play this song to them to get them to go to sleep. They use to call it the sleepy song.
