Track Name: The 'Celebrating Sleepy Time' Prelude
(None)
Track Name: When You Wish Upon a Star
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
Track Name: It's Only a Paper Moon
You say it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me
Yes, its only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me

Without your love it's a honky tonk parade
Without your love it's a melody played in a penny arcade
It's a barnum and bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me

You say its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me
Yes, its only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love it's a melody played in a penny arcade
It's a barnum and bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me...
Track Name: Moon River
Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see

We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Track Name: The 'Celebrating Sleepy Time' Theme
Moonlight glows
through the window
Rest your head
on your pillow
It's time for bed
but one last rhyme
to close your eyes
and celebrate sleepy time...
