Song details
Lyricists:Daniel Glasser
Composers:Daniel Glasser
Performers:Daniel Glasser
Inspiration:Imagination and lack of sleep
Recorded at:One shot at FKO15 near Toronto, April 2, 2005
Notes:This is another recording of the lullaby "Close Your Eyes". The one done by Decadent Dave Clement is probably better, but I figured that I ought to have a version done by the composer (me) available as well.

"This song is so great. i first heard it last year at germanys Filkcontinental. I think every little child should have heared it at least once :-)"

"Soooo funny. I heard Moonwulf sing this at a local event. It was wonderful, and I was sooooo glad he waited for my little girl to leave before he sung it!"

"I first heard this song when Kathy Mar sang it at CONduit last year. She first assured that all small children were either out of the room or asleep (it was rather late in the Saturday-night all-night-filk). Then she sang it for us. We adored it--especially my kids (who are 16 and 18 and so were allowed to experience this song). In fact, we got home and tape recorded ourselves singing it so that we wouldn't forget it. And now we've got it on our computer to listen to, and by the auther, too! Thanks!"

"roja, Also in America, monsters not demons under the bed. So this song is different, and if it can scan in German, it may be best to keep to the original lyrics. Sean, a filker "

"Wow - this is really wonderful! Would you pleeeaaaase send me the lyrics and chords as I'm already in process of translating it into german (if I'm allowed to...) and there is still one line missing (I heard it first at FilkCONtinental sung by Steve Macdonald)... Das sind Monster unter deinem Bett - die fressen dich auf! (In Germany rather monsters dwell under childrens beds than demons...)"
