lyrics

The moon’s a ghost in the blue
Not a cloud in sight; the heat is still here too
Church bells ring; we all count to eight
It’s starting to get late; what to do?

The stars come out in the east
One by one they blink; the sky’s still pink in the west
Green bottle empty on the grass
But we all have a glass, and it’s full

And it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer
And it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer

The solar lights have come on
Twinkling in the tree; it means there’s no more sun
Church bells from far across the town
Chime in their countdown; one to nine

But it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer
It’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer

Summer won’t be here forever; autumn will creep up on us before we know
And let’s make the most of the summer by staying out here

And this is twilight now
Flower colours dim; they seem larger somehow
Ten chimes; or was it eleven?
Or even more again? We don’t know.

‘Cause it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer
And it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer
And it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer
And it’s not time to go to bed, not yet, let’s stay up a little while longer.
