The sun is on the rise!
Time for sleep is done
Can you open up your eyes?

Wake now from slumbering sighs
Roll over, little one
The sun is on the rise!

The morning birds are wise
It’s time to have some fun
Can you open up your eyes?

Throw off your nighttime guise
Come have a cinnamon bun
The sun is on the rise!

The day before you lies
Jump up, it’s time to run
Can you open up your eyes?

With sleep, please cut your ties
It’s time to get up, hon
The sun is on the rise!
Can you open up your eyes?
