About "Take Yourself To Bed"

Final version
An unaccompanied song about bedtime. Not a lullaby though. Oh no!
What does anyone think of the ‘cat’s moustache’ line - it seems like that’s a make or break call right there and i like it when i read it but it’s hard to sing without it standing out all prominent.

It’s recorded in that old timey style - think Ola Belle Reed (… and if that means anything to you you’re welcome round anytime. :-) )

No energy last night so i watched a couple of episodes of firefly and slept on the sofa while the fire burnt down. I woke up and wrote this song straight out with no editing. I tried finding chords for it and then just threw down an accapella vocal to go with the momentum.
