Parody Song Title:

"Can't Sleep"

Parody Written by:

Dumb Ass Kid

The Lyrics either hate it it?
Im lying in my bedroom
This bed don't have much headroom
How gay
This matress feels
Like its missing a few springs
I can't believe you buy things
The lonely dark
Oh, there's a ghost
I miss my old house why'd we have to go?

Can't sleep
This waterbed is leakin'
And I can't stand the feeling
Won't let me sleep on hers
Can't sleep
I've went and over-eaten
And now I feel like heaving
Won't let me sleep on hers

The floorboard creaks
A branch hits of the window
I hear the 'ghostly widow'
Half past 5
Got no shut eye
Put my head down to rest and really try-y-y-y-yy

Can't sleep
This room is really freezin
The heating is the reason
Won't let me sleep in hers
Can't sleep
It's cold, hard winter season
And we aint got no heating
Won't let me sleep in hers

Its so frightening
Being awoke by lightening
in the night

Begging please
I'm on my knees and crying
Why me?

Can't sleep
And now it's almost morning
Baby, i'm still yawning
Won't let me sleep in hers
No, no
Can't sleep
Why'd you do this to me
And now im feeling poorly
Just let me sleep in hers
Just let me sleep in hers
You think im complaining
But i'm contemplating
No sleep
No sleep
No sleep
Now i'm going crazy
People think i'm lazy
I'm going mad
I'm going mad
I'm going real mad
Oh, Why, why, why, why?
Why, why, why, why?
No! No! No!
Hush i'm sleepin'
Hush i'm sleepin'
Hush Hush
Won't let me sleep in hers
Hush i'm sleepin'
Hush i'm sleepin'
Hush Hush
Won't let me sleep in hers

Good job DAK. I know all about's caused me to write some really crappy parodies. All 5's, by the way.

Thanks Billy, and Id just like to congratulate you on being quick off the mark! lol thanx

545. Maybe cause you have crappy beds? Insomnia sucks bad, just wait untill you have had it for 20+ years in a row.
Dumb Ass Kid - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
I indeed have a crappy bed, but it's not nearly as bad as the one described - it was just an exageration for purposes of humour thank you again Red Ant

Hi, DAK! Great parody, although the original was from the nineties.
Dumb Ass Kid - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Josh? Is that you? Why've you called yourself Josh 999?
Red Ant to DAK - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
I doubt it. Josh 2 has a very unique style of writing comments ( I haven't seen a single one without some kind of grammatical mistake, not a bag on Josh 2, my own comments/parodies have numerous ones as well ). Besides, Josh 999 didn't leave a vote.

nice! (Ha ha and I thought I had problems sleeping...) : )
Dumb Ass Kid - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Now this could get confusing - TWO josh's. Don't tell the other one this, but Josh 999 sounds a lot nicer!! lol!
Dumb Ass Kid - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
PS - That was only a joke, real Josh. And Josh 999, the version I parodied was the 2001 Christmas number one by Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman.

No, hang on a minute. My mistake, i'm getting confused here. I apologize if i've put the original of this song down as the 00s, it was an honest mistake. It should've been put down in the 90s, you're quite right Josh
Arwen - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Not sure that "how gay" is a very appropriate way to describe your bed. I don't me easily offended...
Dumb Ass Kid - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Arwen, sorry if I offended you with that term. I use it all the time. it means 'How sad', 'how moronic'. I'll be more careful when selecting vocabulary for my parodies next time

Fine pacing and rhymes, enjoyable theme. 545
Dumb Ass Kid - April 10, 2005 - Report this comment
And an equally enjoyable comment, Jake! thanx

Insomnia? Don't knock it, that's how I got about 200 of my parodies. (The preceding was meant as humor: Insomnia actually is a scourge on mankind.)
gracious green - April 10, 2005 - Report this comment
whoa arwen you really are easily offended psht....but hey whatever creams your twinkie, i liked the parody a lot though...i wish i could write them but i would suck at it!
Dumb Ass Kid - April 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Gwen - wow, it's not very often i get celebs rating my parody, and if you notice i've already apologized for putting the parody in the wrong decade. Michael - I hate insomnia, hence the parody. I've been suffering from it quite a lot lately, dunno why. GG - you never know until you try! Thank you all

I posted the same comment on here twice already but for some reason it kept getting deleted. I was just asking DAK who "Gwen" was.
Blue Ant - April 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Nice job here. 5/4/5.
Dumb Ass Kid - April 16, 2005 - Report this comment
Josh - there's been a few times now on my parodies especially where comments keep magically disappearing into thin air. Someone had left a comment under the name Gwen Stefani, which, incase you didn't already know, was the lead singer in No Doubt - the band who originally released this song. Blue Ant - Thanx, but all these multicoloured ants are confusing me! There's red ones, blue ones, white ones, what next? Green ones?!!?!?!?!!
Josh 555 - April 18, 2005 - Report this comment
I know who she is. And sometimes the original artists themselves are known to comment on the parodies. By the way, I am not Josh 2 or Josh 999 or any of the other Joshes that have sent stuff to this site.
Tell me something else. Where have you seen a White Ant on this site?
Cheezmeister - April 19, 2005 - Report this comment
One:yeah, insomnia is pretty conducive to parody writing, but it does suck. i got that mattress topper thing, you know the one. it feels better, but the mattress inside still sucks, so it reaks whenever I move. Still....

Two:I try not to confuse gay as in "creamy twinkie" with gay as in sad, moronic. I stated spelling that latter gey with an e. It's catching on at school....

Three: hail to the multicolored ants! they always come keep me company when I have insomnia. Oh, and the purple mountain majesty ant has just pointed out to me that no, green ants are not next, she is. Guess she's right...

Four: pretty funny and met the pacing pretty good--for the part i do know. unofficial 544

Josh: There was a white ant commented on one of my other parodies, I think. As well as the original Red Ant and there's also a Blue Ant. Cheezmeister: Thanks for your comments AND your vote!

Hey, never mind; I found the parody where the White Ant stopped by:

Funny, and reminds me of Who Needs Sleep? By Barenaked Ladies. I know how it feels, and I do hate it
