The Lyrics

Day-o, day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep

Drink warm milk an’ take off pants, sir
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)
What’s that sharp pain? Must be cancer
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)

Come, Mr. Sandy Mon, sandy me a sprinkle
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)
Come, Mr. Sandy Mon, (oops, me have to tinkle)
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)

It's twelve clock, one o’clock, two clock, NUTS!
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)
Twelve clock, one o’clock, two clock, NUTS!
(Daylight come and me still can’t sleep)

Day, me say day-ay-ay-o
(Daylight come and me got fall sleep)
Dawn, me say morn, me say morn, me say morn, me say morn, me say morn

(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)

Me playing nice all night with banana
(Daylight come and me wan' fall sleep)
Me think a lot about Miss Blythe Danner
(Worked five times, better off counting sheep)

It's three clock, four o’clock, five clock, NUTS!
(Daylight soon and me wan' fall sleep)
Six clock, seven clock, eight clock, DAMN!
(Daylight now and me don' fall sleep)

Day, me say day-ay-ay-o
(Daylight now and me don' fall sleep)
Light, no more night, no more night, no more night, no more night, no more night

(Daylight here and me can't go sleep)

Come, Mr. Sandy Mon, sandy me some dry grains
(Daylight here and me can't fall sleep)
Quick, Mr. Sandy Mon, now me getting migraines
(Daylight here and me can't fall sleep)

Day-o, day-ay-ay-o
(Day she come and me don' fall sleep)
Pants, put on pants, put on pants, put on pants, put on pants, it’s tomorrow-o-o
(Day she come and never fall sleep)

Al - What's big, grey, has a trunk, and sings calypso? Harry Elephante! I'd give you three 5s, but Matilda...she take me scoring and run Venezuela (Everybody!). Good job, mon! ;D

Sleep disturbance as we get older is indeed a problem. Did you ever get Blythe Danner to personally help with that?
