Sure Cure For Making Up For Lost Sleep

Folks, I have to tell you I ain't been sleepin' all that well as of late.

Some of the problem is due to the obnoxious snorin' of my mate!

Or it could be the neighbor's barkin' dogs up and down the street,

And believe me, there are howlin' hounds and yappin' mutts replete!

I've tried numerous sleepin' aids off the pharmacist's shelf,

Tryin' to cure this dilemma and get some sleep for myself.

Eureka! I found a simple remedy for my plight in church today;

I fell fast asleep as soon as the pastor arose to have her say!
