The text reads:

I thought I’d got this bedtime sorted

Routine - no problem - love me a plan

A bath, a book, a little chat, lights out,

“I love you!” and that’s that

 

But oh; how you have proved me wrong -

Jumping up and down for so very long that

I have started feeling dizzy

Why are you being so very busy

(Am I the one who’s got it “wrong?”)

 

I just want a cuppa (for cuppa read wine)

This time in the evening it should be all mine

I love you but I just need some space:

I love you but you seem to think it’s a race -

 

to see who can win at messing about,

to see who can provoke me first to shout -

 

“THIS IS GETTING SILLY JUST GET INTO BED!

YOU’RE OVERTIRED, JUST GET YOUR HEAD

RIGHT ONTO YOUR PILLOW

AND SHUT YOUR EYES!”

But guess who’s in for a big surprise?

It isn’t a teddies big picnic;

(We’re not going on a bear hunt)

It’s wind the mummy up,

Wind the mummy up,

Pull pull, let’s be blunt:

 

Mummy’s had enough,

Mummy’s given up

Mummy thinks you're being a… 

oh look, you're asleep.
