No Bad Dreams in Momma's Bed

Story Behind The Song

My 4 year old daughter woke my wife and I one night walking down the hall crying from having a bad dream. Barely awake, I heard my wife say "You can sleep with us tonight because there's no bad dreams in momma's bed" I knew this would be a great song idea.

No Bad Dreams in Momma's Bed
Sweet dreams turned to nightmares for my girl,
just barely four
Rubbing teary eyes, her blanket,
draggin on the floor
She tiptoed to our room and whispered, "Mommy I'm scared"
My wife said, "It will be all right,
you can sleep with us tonight,
because there're no bad dreams in momma's bed"


In momma's bed there's magic castles,
and ponies that can fly
And princes dance with little girls and
puppies with big brown eyes
You're safe here with mommy, so lay down your sleepy head
Because there're no bad dreams,
because there're no bad dreams in momma's bed

Now our bed was not that big, why it's,
kinda tight for two
But we snuggled up and you know what, there was
just enough room
Now I'm a full grown man but I've, got to tell the truth
As I drifted off to sleep,
I was, just a little more at peace
because there're no bad dreams in momma's bed
