Shakey Graves - Counting Sheep Lyrics




Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah-ah

Sweet dream, let me lay you down
Hold your breath, don't make a sound
Baby honestly can you sleep
I've been getting pretty good at counting sheep

I am the very specimen
Of a sleepwalking gentleman
If I die before I wake
Save my dream for another day

'Cause tonight
I got nothing on my mind
But you
Somewhere, somehow
You'll feel it too
Ooh, don't you take a bow at the last
Curtain call
Thinking you're nobody's nothing after all

Nothing after all
You're something after all

Sweet dream, let me lay you down
Hope your feet don't touch the ground
It's getting late, why can't I sleep
I've been getting pretty good at counting sheep

I am the very specimen
Of a sleepwalking gentlemen
If I die before I wake
Save my dreams for another day

'Cause tonight
Oh, I've got nothing on my mind
But you
Somewhere, somehow
You'll feel it too
Ooh, don't you take a bow at the last
Curtain call
Thinking you're nobody's nothing after all

Nothing after all
You're somebody's something after all

Tonight
I got nothing on my mind
But you
Somewhere, somehow
You'll feel it too
Ooh, don't you take a bow at the last
Curtain call
Thinking you're nobody's nothing after all

You're somebody's something after all
You're somebody's something after all

    Lyrics:

    [Verse 1]

    Sweet dreams
    Let me lay here down
    Hold your breath
    Don't make a sound
    Baby, oh, say, can you sleep?
    I've been getting pretty good
    At counting sheep

    [Break]
    I am the very specimen
    Of a sleepwalking gentleman
    If I die before I wake
    Save my dreams for another day

    [Chorus]
    'Cause tonight
    I've got nothing on my mind but you
    Somewhere, somehow
    You'll feel it too
    Ooh, don't you take a bow at the
    Last curtain call
    Thinking you're nobody's
    Nothing after all
    (Nothing after all)

    [Verse 2]
    Sweet dreams
    Let me lay here down
    Hope your feet don't touch the ground
    It's getting late why can't I sleep
    I've been getting pretty good
    At counting sheep

    [Break]
    I am the very specimen
    Of a sleepwalking gentleman
    If I die before I wake
    Save my dreams for another day

    [Chorus]
    'Cause tonight
    I've got nothing on my mind but you
    Somewhere, somehow
    You'll feel it too
    Ooh, don't you take a bow at the
    Last curtain call
    Thinking you're nobody's
    Nothing after all
    (Nothing after all)
    You're somebody's
    Something after all
    (Something after all)

    [Chorus]
    Tonight!
    I've got nothing on my mind but you
    Somewhere, somehow
    You'll feel it too
    Ooh, don't you take a bow at the
    Last curtain call
    Thinking you're nobody's
    Nothing after all
    You're somebody's
    Something after all
    You're somebody's
    Something after all
