You Can Count on Me (Lullaby)

You can tell me a story

you can turn out the light

you can count all the stars twinkling up in the sky

’cause you’re growing up fast and you’re growing up tall

so lay down your head for the night

 

You can sleep till the morning

we can meet in our dreams

and I’ll hold you, my sweet little bee

you can count on your fingers

and count on your toes

and darling you can count on me

 

So pull up the covers

and close your tired eyes

a kiss for your forehead

and a last lullaby

’cause you’re growing up clever and growing up brave

so lay down your head for the night

 

You can sleep till the morning

we can meet in our dreams

then I’ll hold you, my sweet little bee

you can count on your fingers

and count on your toes

and darling you can count on me

and darling you can count on me

you can always count on me.
