Song Lyric Sunday: A Humongous Hit

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, writers were given the sizable task of locating a song with one of the given words—big, large, little, small, tiny, or tall—in either the title or the lyrics. Not only was Brock Lesnar becoming the UFC Heavyweight Champion a tremendous feat, but his ability to cross over, successfully, from the world of professional wrestling to mixed martial arts is immeasurable. When Lesnar’s monstrous, muscular frame appeared through the curtain into the arena to the song “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, he brought a volume of views, ranging from believers to doubters.

Lyrics to “Enter Standman”:

[Verse 1]

Say your prayers, little one, don’t forget, my son

To include everyone

I tuck you in, warm within, keep you free from sin

‘Til the Sandman he comes

[Pre-Chorus]

Sleep with one eye open

Gripping your pillow tight

[Chorus]

Exit light

Enter night

Take my hand

We’re off to never never-land

[Verse 2]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

Sleep with one eye open

Gripping your pillow tight

[Chorus]

Exit light

Enter night

Take my hand

We’re off to never never-land

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]

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)

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

[Chorus]

Exit light

Enter night

Grain of sand

Exit light

Enter night

Take my hand

We’re off to never never-land (yeah, haha haha)

[Outro]

Oh, yeah-yeah, yo

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

  1. Hard to believe Brock Lesnar crossed over to MMA. I remember watching him on WWE and freaking out at his size, which looks like steroids gone overboard. It was a toss-up between Brock and Ryback as the scariest. Good song also 🙂
