“Pillow Time” Lyrics

There’s a wonderland for Alice
There’s a tall beanstalk for Jack
The sleepy train will take you there
So safely down the track
With the sandman at the throttle
You’ll be off to dreams and back
It’s pillow time again

You will meet all your storybook friends
As you go down Mother Goose Lane
Romp with Jack and Jill
Up and down the hill
And try to put Humpty together again

Close your sleepy eyes and listen
While we take a little hop
The candy whistle’s blowin’
Don’t you miss your station stop
So good night, my weary farer
Pleasant dreams to you, old top
It’s pillow time again

You will meet all your storybook friends
As you go down Mother Goose Lane
Romp with Jack and Jill
Up and down the hill
And try to put Humpty together again

Close your sleepy eyes and listen
While we take a little hop
The candy whistle’s blowin’
Don’t you miss your station stop
So good night, my weary farer
Pleasant dreams to you, old top
It’s pillow time again
It’s pillow time again
It’s pillow time again
