"Stay Awake" is a song featured in Disney's 1964 film, Mary Poppins. It is sung by Mary Poppins. The song is reportedly the only one of the two song in the film (the other being Feed the Birds) that original author P.L. Travers liked. This song is sung when Mary Poppins is trying to get Jane and Michael to go to sleep. In 2013, a re-performance of this song was contributed by Hayley Westenra.

Lyrics

Stay awake
Don't rest your head
Don't lie down upon your bed
While the moon drifts in the skies
Stay awake
Don't close your eyes
Though the world is fast asleep
Though your pillow's soft and deep
You're not sleepy as you seem
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
