you don't, don't, don't
don't have to count my sheep
I can open and close my eyes fine by me

you don't, don't, don't,
don't have to cook for me
I can feed myself fine, can't you see?

my mama, she told me
you take care of yourself
she told me
take care of yourself
and nobody else

but I guess you can
count, count, count
count back my sheep and me to sleep
I could use a warm body
and a nice brush of your cheek

my heart it, it told me
you take care of yourself
it told me, I love you
and nobody else

and now I'm telling you
stop, stop, stop
don't count my fucking sheep
I've been awake for days
why the hell can't I sleep

my mama, she told me
you take care of yourself
she told me,
take care of yourself
don't let nobody else

so now I'm back to
count count,
I'm counting my own damn sheep
every morning I wake,
the bright sun I see

I've been taking good care of myself
I don't need nobody
just me and myself
