(Sing to the tune of "Home on the Range")

Oh, give me a bed, just a hospital bed and let me sleep all through the night.Whatever you do, please don't wake me at two, let me sleep til the dawn's early light.

First Chorus:

Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me at three for a shot. Can't you see, my dear nurse, that I'm just getting worse when you wake me at three on the dot?

How often at night do you turn on my light for a temp'rature check or a test,Then I lie here and toss, getting angry and cross, will I ever get some rest?

Second Chorus:

Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me to wa-ash my face,Let me lie here asleep in a slumber so deep, or I'll get out of this place.

You woke me at two, now I'm pleading with you, go away and just leave me alone,I don't want to count sheep, I just want to sleep, if I need you I'll call on the phone.

Third Chorus:

Sleep, glorious sleep, don't wake me at three or at four,Let me sleep through the night til the dawn's early light,and I'll never come here any more!
