Like a wraith, in the night
Insomnia descends
Smell the stench of my blight
Foul visit never ends

Insomnia descends
Counted sheep attack me
Foul visit never ends
Dread is at an acme.

Counted sheep attack me
As wooly-bodied snakes
Dread is at an acme.
My frightened sleep escapes

As wooly-bodied snakes
They wrap around my brain
My frightened sleep escapes
Will I e’er rest again?

They wrap around my brain
Smell the stench of my blight
Will I e’er rest again?
Escape wraith in the night?
