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.
