Get Rid Of The Advertisements

'Night Mama
I'd love to skip down
To the old mercantile
Or sit by the stream,
Just linger awhile.

Or pick bright apples
And savor each bite.
I'd love to go swimming
Out in the moonlight.

If I could only fulfill
All the wishes I had
Oh how very much
My heart would be glad.

But Mama tells me
That bed time is near
And not another word
Does she want to hear.

So I'll tuck all my wishes
Into my silly dreams
And with peppermint shoelaces
Sew up the seams.

I'll hide all my secrets
Safe under my bed
Oh there it is Dolly.
Dreamland's straight ahead.
'Night Mama...
