St. Judy's Comet
Paul Simon Lyrics


Little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime's
Long been past
And though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You're fading fast
Fading fast

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds
In its wake
I long to see St. Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes
When you awake

Little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy
Won't you close your weary eyes
Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

Well I sang it once
And I sang it twice
I'm going to sing it three times more
Going to stay til your resistance
Is overcome
Cause if I can't sing my boy to sleep
Well it makes your famous daddy
Look so dumb

Won't you run come see St. Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds
In its wake
I long to see St. Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes
When you awake

Little boy, little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy, little boy
Won't you close your weary eyes
Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

Oo Little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime's
Long been past
Though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
That you're fading fast

Little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour ol your bedtime's
Long been past

And though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You're fading fast
Fading fast

Won't you run come see St.Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds
In its wake
I long to see St.Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes
When you awake

Little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy
Won't you close your weary eye's
Ain't nothing flashing hut the fireflies

Well I sang it once
Then I sang it twice
I'm going tu sing it three times more
I'm going tu stay 'til your resistance
Is overcome
'Cause if I can't sing my boy tu sleep
Well it makes your famous daddy
Look so dumb

Wun't you run come see St.Judy's Comel
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds

Little boy, little boy
Won't you close your weary eyes
Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

Well the hour of your bedtime's
Long been past
Though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
That you're fading fast.

Little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime's
Long been past
And though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You're fading fast
Fading fast

[Chorus 2]
Won't you run come see St.Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds
In its wake
I long to see St.Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes
When you awake

[Chorus 3]
Little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy
Won't you close your weary eye's
Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

[Verse]
Well I sang it once
I said I sang it twice
I'm going to sing it three times more
I'm going to stay 'til your resistance
Is overcome
Cause if I can't sing my boy to sleep
Well it makes your famous daddy
Look so dumb

Won't you run come see St.Judy's Comet
Roll across the skies
And leave a spray of diamonds
In its wake
I long to see St.Judy's Comet
Sparkle in your eyes
When you awake

Little boy
Won't you lay your body down
Little boy
Won't you close your weary eye's
Ain't nothing flashing but the fireflies

Little sleepy boy
Do you know what time it is?
Well the hour of your bedtime's
Long been past
And though I know you're fighting it
I can tell when you rub your eyes
You're fading fast
Fading fast

Paul Simon, Paul McCartney( my number 1), Brian Wilson and Elton John are the greatest melodists ever:)

David McConville

I would include Stevie Wonder to the list.

John Hughes

Can't argue with that list!

Dellani Oakes

I love this song, too. My daughter just had her second child and I kept singing it to her while I held her. I remembered most of the words after 40+ years. I was proud of myself.

There is not a weak cut on this album. This is one of my faves.

Corben VanLoosbroek

This song reminds me of when I was a kid...
