Take my hand
We're off to never never land


(Repeat Rhythm Fill 2 twice)

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of War, dreams of lies
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, yeah!

(Repeat Bridge)

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping you pillow tight

(Repeat Chorus Fill)

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never-never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never-never land
