MY CHILD WON'T SLEEP: A PLAYLIST

I have been sitting by this cot for over two hours. First person to use the words 'sleep training' gets a punch in the nose.
  1. "I'm So Tired" by The Beatles
    Then why won't you go to sleep?
  2. "I Don't Want To Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith
    I know you don't, but all you're missing is me bathing, cooking and trying to write an abstract. Sleep is so much better than that.
  3. "Cry Baby Cry" by The Beatles
    I wish you wouldn't, but I don't know how to make it stop now.
  4. "Let's Spend the Night Together" by The Rolling Stones
    Let's not. This is your bed. I have my own bed. And I sleep much better without your feet in my face.
  5. "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel
    I am right. Go to sleep.
  6. "My Way" by Frank Sinatra
    Nope. My way.
  7. "The Rising" by Bruce Springsteen
    A mere ten minutes after the falling asleep.
  8. "Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown" by The Rolling Stones
    Here it comes...
  9. "Brandy" by Looking Glass
    Is in the downstairs cupboard.
  10. "Red Red Wine" by UB40
    That would work, too.
  11. Bonus track: "Morning Has Broken" by Cat Stevens
    Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
