"Everybody Sleeps" is a Sesame Street song from the early 1970's. It is sung by the composer, Joe Raposo.

The song is accompanied by a film showing people and animals sleeping in various ways. Some scenes were replaced in the late 1980s. The film originally had a shot of a man falling asleep in a chair, only to fall out of it, which was later replaced with a shot of astronauts sleeping. (EKA: Episode 2621) In the early 1990s, the segment was re-filmed entirely and the original song was remixed (This version uses an alternate vocal take from Raposo, with slightly different lyrics). (EKA: Episode 3026)

Alan performed the song in a 1998 episode. The song was also remade as "Every Kitty Sleeps" for a Suzie Kabloozie cartoon.

A similar song called "Everybody Eats" uses the same tune, but has lyrics that pertain to food and eating.
