The Lyrics

4 AM and she yells from the top the stairs
"You got to go to school, and i say who cares?
I just can't go to sleep, and i do not know the reason"
Now i walk through the door with half open eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize,
Hypocrites. I really hate the entire school season

'Cause i can't go to sleep, but i wish i was able
Can't go to sleep anywhere, i just tried the table
I can not find a real nice pillow now
I'll cradle my head in my hands
And sleep, just sleep
Oh sleep, just sleep

It's May, day 21 i can't take much more of this
There's no way i am anywhere close to a bliss
"Ain't been sleeping, I've just been weeping since last week"
Here at home you can tell i've been tired for a while
And my God, it feels like i just ran 20 miles
Wanna go now, and then i'll just sleep about it

There's a pillow at each end of my king size
I dream cause if there is not, then i'll be forced to scream
And this mistake i've made, i won't make it again
I almost just slept on the ground

2 PM and i'm still asleep, inside my bed
If i get it all out in this sleep, it's no longer inside of me
Threatning the life it belongs to
And in a dream, i'm naked in front of a crowd
Then i wake up real fast and i'm screaming out loud
And i know that i can't go to sleep because of this dream

[SOTM] DKTOS...But a very....interesting read. Like the way you captured the feeling of fatigue by comparing it with a 20 mile run. Good stuff : )

SOTM-Well done, clever rhymes, and matches the original well!

Any chance there's a recording of this somewhere on the net? I've searched, but unsuccesfully so far, unless you count Russian pages which also offers Anna Nichole Nude pictures, i.e virusalert galore!

(SOTM) Have you commented on any of the other parodies yet? I believe Claude's comment was directed at you, since at the time you voted, you had not left a comment on any parodies in this contest. I DNKOS here, so no vote or comment from me.

(sotm) nice work - it read like a weird dream too, Abbott - and I just noticed Dee's comment, so I'll check that out before I vote

(SOTM) This CPAP-user can relate!

(SOTM) I don't think I've done anything over 3 days without sleep. A 5 for each day...
Phil Alexander - July 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Hmm... I remember looking at this one earlier, and must have voted 'cause the vote didn't take just now. But I obviously forgot to comment... anyway, I can sympathise, as I can't get to sleep ('cause I've got a load of SOTM parodies still to read)

(SOTM) DKTOS, but as a long standing insomniac, I can relate!
Mikey Squirrel - July 31, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM.. Sadly I DKTOS as well. But still a very interesting parody and something I can truly relate too. Good job. 555

DKTOS but I hate leaving it at that. It's decent as a free-read and I enjoyed the opening 'stairs/cares' couplet.

Blimey, I just submitted 'Snooze Control' and now find that you've already covered the topic of... bed covers... Nice rhyming.
