Collin Raye — Counting Sheep lyrics

(robert ellis orrall)

I'm counting the cracks on the wall by my bed
Ў®cause I can't get to sleep
And my mother said
To try counting sheep as they're jumpin' the fence
But the fence has a hole
And the sheep snuck out
Their tails are wagging
Back and forth in celebration
Farmer sam is calling out their names
But he's yelling to loud and I can't get to sleep
And it's all on account
Of those runaway sheep
Now they're out in the woods eating ice-cream and cake
Dancing Ў®round and around
That's why I'm awake
Unless I'm dreaming
This is all to silly to be really happening
They've all got party hats
Every one of those sheep has a bell on it's neck
Going ring-a-ding-ding
I'm a nervous wreck
They're ringing so loud
Tell me why it won't stop
A familiar sound
Just like my alarm clock
Hey no wonder
I can hear mom say good morning
Time for breakfast
Tell me what you dreamed
