(to the tune of "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love")

Close your eyes, close the door,
You don't have to worry anymore;
I'll be your baby tonight.
Well now, let's shut the light, shut the shade
You really don't have to be afraid
I'll be your baby tonight.

That mockingbird's gonna sail away
And that big fat old moon
It won't be pale, it's gonna 
Shine just like a spoon.
So no regrets, we'll forget our fear
Fling your shoes and bring that bottle over here.
I'll be your baby tonight.
