Go ahead and brush those teeth–brush them until they shine,
Me? I’ll wait here by your pillow–I’ll be just fine.
Go ahead and zip those jammies–zip them up real tight,
Me? I’m not going anywhere–I have all night.
Go ahead and ask for a lullaby–maybe even two,
Me? I’ll lay here quietly–listening with you.
Go ahead and get a kiss–the tender forehead kind,
Me? I’ll take one, too–if you don’t mind.
Go ahead and close your eyes–fall asleep and sleep tight,
Me? I’m the kind of teddy bear that snuggles–snuggles through the night.
