St. Judy's Comet Lyrics

by Paul Simon

Ooh, little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well, the hour of your bedtime's long been past
And though I know you're fightin' it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You're fadin' fast, oh, fadin' fast

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes when you awake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy
Won't you close your weary eyes
Ain't nothing flashin' but the fireflies

Well, I sang it once and I sang it twice
I'm going to sing it three times more
Going to stay 'til your resistances overcome
'Cause if I can't sing my boy to sleep
Well, it makes your famous daddy look so dumb
Look so dumb

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds in its wake
I long to see St. Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes when you awake
Oh, when you wake, wake

Little boy, little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy, little boy
Won't you close your weary eyes
Ain't nothin' flashin' but the fireflies

Ooh, little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well, the hour of your bedtime's long been past
Though I know you're fightin' it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
That you're fadin' fast, ooh, fadin' fast
