Watch Metallica Join Jimmy Fallon and The Roots To Perform “Enter Sandman” on Classroom Instruments [YouTube Video]

LYRICS

Say your prayers little one
Don’t forget my son
To include everyone
I tuck you in
Warm within
Keep you free from sin
Until the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never-land

Something’s wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of Snow White
Dreams of war
Dreams of liars
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never-land

My friends, put you hands like this man

Now I lay me down to sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
And
If I die before I wake
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take
Pray the lord my soul to take
My friends, put you hands like this man

Hush little baby don’t say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It’s just the beast under your bed
In your closet in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never-land

Come on people
Hey yeah, oh oh yeah

We’re off to never never-land

Take my hand
We’re off to never never-land
Take my hand
We’re off to never never-land

With James Hetfield on Click N’ Play clarinet, Kirk Hammett on a melodica, Robert Trujillo on a baby electric guitar, and Lars Ulrich pounding on a small drum, Jimmy Fallon and the gang deliver a performance that’s sure to have you singing along while leaving a smile on your face.
