My Bed Is A Boat

My bed is like a little boat;

Nurse helps me in when I embark,

She girds me in my sailor's coat

And starts me off into the dark.

At night I go on board and say

Good night to all my friends on shore,

I shut my eyes and sail away

And see and hear no more.

And sometimes thing to bed I take

As prudent sailors have to do,

Perhaps a slice of wedding cake,

Perhaps a toy or two.

All night across the  dark we steer,

But when the day returns at last,

Safe in my room beside the pier,

I find my vessel fast.
