To Sleep

I need to sleep,
but you won't let me.
Why won't you let me?
Waited so long to be able to lie down,
now you won't let me
get my needed sleep.
Why you keep doin' those things you doin'?
I need to sleep
but you feel so nice, cuddled so close.
Come on, you!
It's very late and I have to get up in a few hours.
Now you know I can't sleep
when your hands are doin' that.
Why? Why? Why?
Why won't you let me get my sleep?
