The Lyrics

I guess any parent will know where this one is coming from... I have written it to be sung as a duet with my (nine-year-old) daughter, seeing as she's really getting into the original...
[Dad]
Every night I get so angry I get pain in my head
Why do you never listen when it's time to go to bed?
You got me shouting till I'm hoarse, never do what you are told to
Now it's time for bed, don't want to hear a peep from you
Baby, baby,
Not a single peep
Not a single peep
Head down on your pillow, close your eyes and go to sleep
Not a single peep
Not a single peep
Next time I look in you'd better be asleep so deep
I don't care what you say or what you do or when you say you're not even tired
Do what I say, I'm your daddy
But your insolence it drives me wild
I don't know why you have to be a disobedient child
A disobedient child

[Child]
Ever since I can remember you've been bossing me about
Tell me what to do, and then you start to scream and shout
I don't want to play your game and I don't tell you what to do
But a girl she doesn't have to do all that you tell her to
Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy

[Dad]________ [Child]
Not a single peep ________ I don't want to sleep
Not a single peep ________ I don't want to sleep

[Dad]
Head down on your pillow, close your eyes and go to sleep

[Dad] ________ [Child]
Not a single peep ________ I don't want to sleep
Not a single peep ________ I don't want to sleep

[Dad]
Next time I look in you'd better be asleep so deep
I don't care what you say or what you do or when you say you're not even tired

[Child]
I don't have to do what you tell me daddy

[Dad]
Your insolence it drives me wild

[Child]
I'm doing what I want

[Dad]
'Cause you're a disobedient child
A disobedient child

[Dad]
Ooh, you got a tired head that ought to be down

[Child]
I don't have to listen to you push me around

[Dad]
Listen - you got the tired eyes that ought to be closed

[Child]
Shout at me once more you'll get a punch on your nose

[Dad]
Oh, you got a tired look, so lie down quick

[Child]
You shout at me once more I'll scream till I'm sick
But since I'm feeling kind of tired and you look kind of old
Maybe I'll give it a shot, and do what I'm told
I'm looking for refreshing, fortifying relaxation
I'm gonna tell my daddy I'll begin hibernation!
Ever since I can remember you've been bossing me about
Now daddy, ask me nicely, you don't have to scream and shout

[Dad]
My jaw is dropping in surprise as it all starts to unfold
A daughter being good and fin'ly doing what she's told
Baby, baby, baby, baby,

[Dad] ________ [Child]
Not a single peep ________ Yes, I'll go to sleep
Not a single peep ________ Yes, I'll go to sleep
Head down on your pillow, ________ Head down on my pillow
Close your eyes and go to sleep ________ You won't hear a single peep
Not a single peep ________ Yes, I'll go to sleep
Not a single peep ________ Yes, I'll go to sleep
Next time I look in you'd ________ But you'd best be quiet
better be asleep so deep ________ as out of here you creep

[Child]
I don't care who you are

[Dad]
Or what you do

[Child]
Or if I say

[Dad]
You're not even tired

[Child]
I'm going to do what you tell me daddy

[Dad]
(I can't believe that she said that and she smiled)

[Both]
I don't know why you changed but you're a real obedient child
A real obedient child

(Obedient child)
(Obedient child)
(Obedient child, Obedient) x11
