Stay Awake is song six, and the final song, of a six week digital download campaign in which Melanie Peterson is releasing one new cover song each week

lyrics

Stay Away (from Disney's Mary Poppins)

Stay awake, don't rest your head
Don't lie down upon your bed
While the moon drifts in the skies
Stay awake, don't close your eyes

Though the world is fast asleep
Though your pillow's soft and deep
You're not sleepy as you seem
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
