Writer’s Lullaby (tune: Utah Phillip’s Hobo’s Lullaby) By Mark Roth-Whitworth
Go to sleep you weary writer
Let the words softly slip away
You’re in your nice warm bed now
Tomorrow, o’r the keys your fingers will play.
I know that the words, they give you trouble.
They trouble everyone when they won’t come.
Just you get your sleep now,
They will come with the rising of the sun.
Today, your dreams they are in tatters,
And you want to beat yourself,
In the morning, keep on typing,
Someday there’ll be a Hugo on your shelf.
