“St. Judy’s Comet” Lyrics

Ooh, little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
The hour of your bedtime’s long been past
And though I know you’re fightin’ it
I can tell when you rub your eyes and you’re fadin’ fast
Ooh, fadin’ fast

Won’t you run, come see St. Judy’s comet
Roll across the sky
Leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy’s comet sparkle in your eyes when you wake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Little boy, won’t you lay your body down?
Little boy, won’t you close your weary eyes?
Ain’t nothin’ flashin’ but the fireflies

Well, I sang it once, and I sang it twice
I’m gonna sing it three times more
I’m gonna stay ’til your resistance is overcome
’Cause if I can’t sing my boy to sleep
Well, it makes your famous daddy look so dumb
Hey, look so dumb

Little boy, won’t you lay your body down?
Little boy, won’t you close your weary eyes?
Ain’t nothin’ flashin’ but the fireflies

Won’t you run, come see St. Judy’s comet
Roll across the sky
And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy’s comet sparkle in your eyes when you wake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Won’t you run, come see St. Judy’s comet
Come on, come see St. Judy’s comet
I long to see St. Judy’s comet
When you wake, wake
