The Sleep Position

The left side of the bed is mine So when I sit down on the bed My pillow is on my right side And that where I lay down my head It’s always the same old routine Start on my right side every night But that’s not my sleep position So I toss and turn till its right On my stomach I only doze And it’s hard to breathe on my back Lots of nights I fight the covers When I turn over in the sack My left side’s my sleep position Where I sleep for most of the night Seems I should switch sides of the bed I’ve tried, but it doesn’t feel right Getting onto my left side quick Doesn’t buy me anymore sleep I first must do the “toss and turn” And then I can quit counting sheep
