When at night I go to sleep       [(trad) ]

I oftentimes embrace a sheep       [Apsley ]

And if the beast reciprocates       [loaf ]

I feel enriched, anent Bill Gates       [F ]

And this, in turn, rewards my kin       [Chevalier ]

More often out than in       [loaf ]

For I'm a creature of The Deep       [Apsley ]

When at night I go to sleep       [(trad) ]

I dream of Moby Dick and me       [F ]

Having cups of steaming tea       [Apsley ]

And this, in turn, rewards my lust       [loaf ]

As does a mermaid's bust       [F ]

Salty tears I often weep       [Chevalier ]

As I dream of Meryl Streep       [Nigel Sly ]

And the restraining order, (sob)       [F ]

That keeps me here, a drunken slob       [Chevalier ]

And this, in turn, reflects my fate       [dok ]

Oh love do come and don't be late       [Anon. ]

Envoi       [loaf ]

Evening shadows round me creep       [Chevalier ]

(And damn that stinking little sheep!)       [Jeff Foster ]

Who baaed all night and kept me "up"       [F ]

My strap's in place: please pass the cup       [Helen Owly ]
