In the middle of the ocean
There's an island full of trees,
And the branches sway so gently
With the blowing of the breeze.
On the island there's a sleeping man
Who lies beneath the shade,
And he never needs to worry,
And he never feels afraid.
And he dreams about the monkeys
And the birds above the land,
While he nestles, warm and peaceful,
With the seashells in the sand.
And the waves roll in to soothe him
While the starfish dim the light,
And the lobsters sing him lullabyes
To celebrate the night.
So if you should find an island
Floating out beyond the deep,
Hush your voice and please don't wake me,
For I'm happy just to sleep.
