I'm counting the cracks on the wall by my bed
'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 'round and around 
That's why I'm awake  Unless I'm dreaming 
This is all too 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
