“Now I lay me down to sleep. A bottle of vodka at my feet…”

"Now I lay me down to sleep” is a classic children’s bedtime prayer. A vodka version is:

“Now I lay me down to sleep
A bottle of vodka at me feet
If I shall die before I wake
Tell my friends I drank it straight.”


The drinking version was posted on Twitter on May 2, 2009.


Wikipedia: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep is a classic children’s bedtime prayer from the 18th century.
(...)
A later version printed in The New England Primer goes:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray to Lord my soul to keep,
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
