"Forty Winks Away"
By: Neil Sedaka
Songwriters: (unknown)

I Just can't wait to fall asleep
I can't wait for night each day
'cause when the lights are low
No matter where you go,
You're only 40 winks away, away.

No matter how far you may be,
Believe me darling when I say,
The oceans in between
I cross them on a dream
'cause you're just 40 winks away, away.

There's a land of enchantment
Just beyond my pillowcase,
And I go there 'cause I know there
I'll be in your sweet embrace.

So till you come back home again,
Until you're in my arms to stay,
It's kinda nice to know,
I turn the lights down low,
And you're just 40 winks away, away, away.
