Shut Up And Go To Sleep

To the tune of Shut Up And Dance, by Walk The Moon.¬† I’m starting to think I need a special section here just for filk inspired by parenting.

Oh don’t you dare get up
Don’t want to hear a peep
Already tucked you in
So just shut up and go to sleep!
These children are the death of me
I said go, go
Shut up and go to sleep!

You’ve been dragging out the night
You got a drink, teddy bear, flicked the light
Cuddles from your Mum, you should be right
Oh, you were meant to just be dreaming
No more of this screaming!

Those other Dads
I don’t know they do it.
Do other parents just scream:

Oh don’t you dare get up
Don’t want to hear a peep
Your water bottle’s hot
So just shut up and go to sleep!
We could have got a cat or three
I said go, go
Shut up and go to sleep!

A YouTube song and some Doctor Seuss,
A soothing mug of cocoa, but it’s no use
Your eyes are far too bright for ten forty three
And you should surely now be snoozing
That’s what I’d be choosing!

Those other Dads
I don’t know they do it.
Do other parents all scream:

Oh don’t you dare get up
Don’t want to hear a peep
You’ve peed at least twice each
So just shut up and go to sleep!
I’d like to sell you on Gumtree
I said go, go
Shut up and go to sleep!
(Oh bloody hell!)

Deep in your eyes,
Insomnia is lurking
I realize
I wave the white flag

Those other Dads
Who cares if they all do it
I only ever can scream:

You might as well get up
I’m falling in a heap
Climb in here next to me
Let’s all shut up and go to sleep!
The bed is big enough for three
I said here, here
Tuck up and sleep!

Oh don’t you dare get up
Don’t want to hear a peep
Already tucked you in
So just shut up and go to sleep!
These children are the death of me
I said go, go
Shut up and go to sleep!
Oh oh oh shut up and go to sleep!
Oh oh oh shut up and go to sleep!
