With a nod of appreciation to the latest children’s book/viral sensation “Go the **** to sleep”
It’s 5:00 in the morning my loves
So why are you awake?
I was sure I had until seven at least
But no, this time you’ll take.
We played so hard and stayed up late
I knew you’d be exhausted
I gambled big and lost again
Read late and now it’s cost me
What will it take you silly boys
To sleep in past the dawn?
But now you’re playing with your toys
So any hope is gone.
Aiden’s singing Blitzkrieg Bop
And Ben is crying ‘Mommy’
They’ve got the curtains off the hooks
Wall-kicking while they call me
When they told me one was two
Not four but five we’d be
I couldn’t have guessed
What a glorious mess
Of fun this life would be
