This Song Wants To Sleep With You Tonight

by The Beach Boys

[Verse 1]
The tired day is gone
The hotel lights are on
There's stillness in the night, the city's sleeping
As you lie there in your bed
A tune stays in your head
This sleepy lullaby comes softly creeping
Since I can't be there tonight
To hold and squeeze you tight
Oh baby
[Chorus]
This song wants to sleep with you
This song wants to sleep with you
This song's going to sleep with you tonight
[Verse 2]
The melody comes near
And whispers in your ear
Through the misty nights some distant train goes reeling
If I could be anywhere
I'd wish that I was there
And if you should hear 'I love you' that's me singing
This song's a little blue
Because songs get lonely too
Whoa baby
[Chorus]
[Verse 3]
Soft serenade, gives you soul sweet dreams
Pull down the shade, nothing's wrong
(Can't you feel it, can't you feel it)
Guardian angels watch, over you at night
That's really me, and my song, and my soul
The telephone wires hiss
To bring someone a kiss
This melancholy tune is softly fading
Sweet dreams keep coming on
Deep into the dawn
Oh baby
[Chorus]
[Outro]
This sleepy lullaby comes softly creeping
This melancholy tune is softly fading
Oh, whoa oh
(This song's going to sleep with you
This song's going to sleep with you)
