Let Me Sleep!
Why does that little mermaid keep looking at me? She's blowing bubbles and splashing her tail. Can't she see I'm trying to sleep here? Oh - you want to play do you? Well, now's not the time for play, now is the time for sleep! Tonight I will feed and I need all the energy I can get to catch those slippery fish! Yes, I know you're cute, yes, I know it would be fun, but not now little mermaid. When? Oh very well, tonight we'll play. I'll frolic with you under a full moon sky. We'll swoop and dive among the phosphorescent blue, we'll blow bubbles at the crabs and hide and seek among the kelp. We'll squirm among the squid and harass the hapless herring. But until then, little mermaid, slip silently away and LET ME SLEEP!
