Lyrics

If you feel a little tired, feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe feeling a little grumpy too
It could be that a little nap 
Would be just right for you
It would help you feel better
Make you feel good
just like the animals here at the zoo.
You see everybody needs a little nap, everybody needs a nap.
Everybody needs a nap you see
Close your eyes and sleep peacefully
And when you wake up in a while,
you’ll be wearing a great big smile

Everybody needs a nap you know
The lions, tigers, and the big hippo...
Big or little, young or old,
Everybody needs a nap
Everybody needs a nap

If you feel a little tired, feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe feeling a little grumpy too
It could be that a little nap 
would be just right for you
It would help you feel better
Make you feel good
just like the animals here at the zoo.
You see everybody needs a little nap, everybody needs a nap.
Everybody needs a nap you see
Close your eyes and sleep peacefully
Big or little, young or old,
Everybody needs a nap
Everybody needs a nap

Big or little, young or old,
Everybody needs a nap
Everybody needs a nap

If you feel a little tired, feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe feeling a little grumpy too
It could be that a little nap 
Would be just right for you
It would help you feel better
Make you feel good
and you'll be happier too
You see everybody needs a little nap, everybody needs a nap.
Everybody needs a nap you see
Close your eyes and sleep peacefully
And when you wake up in a while,
you’ll be wearing a great big smile

Everybody needs a nap you know
It will help you to be smart and grow
Big or little young or old
Everybody needs a nap
