IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I'm Getting Tired So I Can Sleep

IRVING BERLIN
"I'm Getting Tired So I Can Sleep"

[Verse:]
Out on a hike all day, dear
Part of the army grind
Weary and long the way, dear
But really I don't mind

[Refrain:]
I'm getting tired so I can sleep
I want to sleep so I can dream
I want to dream so I can be with you

I've got your picture by my bed
'Twill soon be placed beneath my head
To keep me company the whole night through

For a little while, whatever befalls
I will see your smile till reveille calls

I hope you're tired enough to sleep
And please sleep long enough to dream
And look for me for I'll be dreaming too
