Leadfingers, the tune to John of Dreams is Tschaikovsky's, but it's from Symphony No. 6 in Bb minor, not Sleeping Beauty. The tune was borrowed by Tschaikovsky from a southern Italian lullaby entitled "Piva Piva". (That info is from the liner notes of a Mick Moloney album.)

I found a Milanese song called "Piva Piva", but with no tune, and not knowing Italian (let alone Milanese dialect), I don't know if it's the one. Something about olive oil and babies, so it might be.

PIVA PIVA

Piva, piva
l'oli d'oliva
l'è 'l Bambin
che porta i belee,
l'è la mamma
che spend i danee
                                    
Fa la nanna
o bel bambin,
Re divin
Re divin.

PBB, if it doesn't have to be "folk", I've always liked "Stay Awake" from Mary Poppins. (Might be very appropriate for a sleep clinic!)

Aloha,
Mark

There is a bautiful song sung by Roy Orbison. I think it is called "In dreams".
"Coast to Coast" radio plays it sometimes before the program.
It has a line that goes
"In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk with you. " etc
Then it says toward the end:
"And just before the dawn
I wake and find you gone."

Here's one from a friend of mine:

Ode To The Snooze Button
V. Roger Stone

I get up every morning
Hit the button on my radio
Eight more minutes
To rest my weary bones
Can't seem to get my feet
To fall down to the floor
Help me start my day
 
Chorus
I'm a sleepyhead
Lying in my bed
Give me eight more minutes
To rest my weary head
Let me stay a little longer
Solve the problems of the world
This is the Ode to snooze and you.

 
Once I'm up and running,
With my toast and watch in hand
I've got eight more minutes
To get to work again
With my sweater inside out
And my jacket in my hand
This is my song to snooze and you.

Little Willie John's "sleep" circa 1960.

Sleep, sleep, sleep
How we love to sleep.
At the close of day
When the sun and our cares go away

And the memories sweet
Of our days repeat
In our dreams they keep
As we sleep, sleep, sleep.

Last night I dreamed that you and I were in an awful storm,
With no place to go for shelter any where..
and it took a while to realize the meaning of the dream
but now i think it all is coming clear:
the storm was all the troubles we've been having
no shelter was the answer we can't find
and the screaming of the raging wind that chilled me to the bone
must have been the troubles on my mind

Here's a rather silly one that I sang once with a bunch of women. We call ourselves the WWW's (wild wise women). We got all dressed up in our jammies to do it too:

Nightie Nightie Ev'ryone

Lyrics by Dillie Keane
Music by Dillie Keane

There's a cosy little bedroom,
Cosy bunk beds, oh so neat,
Cosy flannelette pyjamas,
Cosy bedsocks for our feet.
Time to snuggle 'neath the blankets
And to close each weary eye,
Tired teddy bears kneel to say their prayers
For they know that dreamland's nigh.

So good night and see you again sometime;
Up the stairs to bedsiebyes we must now climb;
Time for little hobos
To bugger off to bobos,
So nightie nightie ev'ryone.

As we remove our make-up,
We reveal the bitter truth;
For beneath our painted beauty
Is our sadly fading youth.
And so though you think we're gorgeous,
And as lovely as our tunes,
If we're ever viewed when we're in the nude,
We just look like three old prunes.

So goodnight, and hope we've not made you blue;
Underneath this loveliness we're just like you;
For are we beauties? Hardly!
It's all thanks to Yardley;
So nightie nightie ev'ry one.

So goodnight, drive carefully if you're going far;
Mine's a pint, and two white wines -
See you in the bar;
And a treble gin and tonic;
And we'll soon be catatonic.
So nightie nightie ev'ryone.

Nightie nightie ev'ryone.
Nightie nightie ev'ryone.
Night night..

For a little sly comic relief, "Miss Bailey":

One night betimes he went to bed, for he had caught a fever.
Said he, "I am a handsome man, and I'm a gay deceiver".
His candle just at twelve o'clock began to burn quite palely.
A ghost stepped up to his bedside and said, "Behold Miss Bailey!"

My own theory is that the ghost was a hallucination induced by the fever, which he had caught as a consequence of his gay deceivership. However, she might have been an ordinary dream, for which a Freudian explanation would not be difficult. Or, for that matter, she might have been a real ghost.

Guest Q-- Goodnight Sweetheart was actually Ray Noble (God, I'm old!)

One easy one that springs to mind is Irving Berlin's 'Oh how I hate to get up in the morning', don't mess with the lyrics tho', his estate is VERY watchful!
There is also one called 'Dreamed that I saw Unicorns', I could probably dredge up the lyrics from the back of my memory, but can't help with composers or chords or technical stuff like that>

Don't you know I had a dream last night
That you were here with me
Lyin' by my side so soft and warm
And we talked a while
And shared a smile
And then we shared the dawn
But when I woke up
Oh, my dream it was gone

Don't you know I had a dream last night
And you were here with me
Lyin' by my side so soft and warm
And you said you'd thought it over
You said you were coming home
But when I woke up
Oh, my dream it was gone

I'm not the same
Can you blame me
Is it hard to understand
I can't forget
You can't change me
I am not that kind of man

Don't you know I had a dream last night
And ev'rything was still
And you were by my side so soft and warm
And I dreamed that we were lovers
In the lemon scented rain
But when I woke up
Oh, I found that again, I had been
Dreamin', dreamin' again
I had been dreamin', dreamin' again

FC here are the lyrics for 'I dreamed I saw Unicorns' by Bill Caddick

We were traveling north to sing and play
For friends that we had never met
Been working hard and didn't speak
The sky was grey and threatened wet
And I dreamed that I saw unicorns
Dreamed I saw them wild and white
their sudden beauty lit the world
Like a star will light a winter's night

Pure as love with manes of milk
They danced and pranced and cried aloud
Bright as rainbows round the stars
Their eyes were soft and sad and proud

And I wept for the wild and dirty world
To which this beauty now was lost
And cursed the hungry mind of man
That feeds the future at such cost
My head was bowed, my eyes were closed
When in my ears their voices rang
And these few words lodged deep inside
And in my very soul they sang

We never went away
You always knew that we were near
Remember how to look for us
You'll see we were always here

I raised my eyes to seek them out
The world was empty all around
The rain came tumbling from the sky
It drowned all dreams upon the ground
And when they asked me why I wept
Like one who for his dead love mourns
The only answer I could give
I dreamed that there were unicorns
We never went away
You always knew that we were near
Remember how to look for us
You'll see we were always here
