Lyrics

Why do you put me to bed now
When I still must do many more things
A fierce warrior princess born to slay dragons
Can't sleep through the adventures life brings
The moon has just started to race through the sky
The stars are now winking through the trees
The pixies are dancing, the unicorns prancing
And I can't miss the festivities

So Mommy, don't you fret; Daddy, don't you fuss
You've just put me to bed too soon
The stars are floating in laughter and
It's time to play tag with the moon

You can't expect me to stay in bed now
When the party has just begun
What you think is a scream is just my warm-up routine
I'm practising my two-step and clearing my lungs
I'll be singing tonight with the katydid's choir
And leapfrogging toadstools with the gnomes
Taking bats for a spin and waltzing with the wind
'Til the Queen of the owls flies me home

So Mommy, don't you fret; Daddy, don't you fuss
You've just put me to bed too soon
The stars are floating in laughter and
It's time to play tag with the moon

It's impossible to sleep right now
I'm responsible for too many things
Like polishing the moon glow and gilding the lilies
And sprouting my wee fairy wings
I must sing to the grasshoppers a sweet lullaby
Knit the peepers a spiderweb veil
Kiss goodnight the pollywogs, tuck in the ladybugs
And read them all their long bedtime tale

So Mommy, don't you fret; Daddy, don't you fuss
You've just put me to bed too soon
The stars are floating in laughter and
It's time to play tag with the moon
