Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?

Have you ever thought how sinister the lyrics of the last verse of the Rainbow Connection as usually sung by Kermit the Frog is?

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.

I think this could be really creepy if sung slowly and with a hint of menace, and probably not by a frog.
