The Lyrics

Bert Can't Wake Up Himself. So Ernie Starts Singing A Song About Waking Bert Up. It Annoys Bert So Much. The Songwriters Were Martin Allen McRichardson, Jeremy Sonic Frogtable, And Ernest Jay Patterson,
[Verse 1: Ernie]
Waking Bert Up, Makes Me Wonder Why,
Bert's Not Awake, It Makes Me Want To Cry.
That My Ol' Buddy Asleep, Dreaming The Day, Away.
Waking Bert Up, Makes Me Want To Sleep, Whoa.

[Verse 2: Ernie]
Waking Bert Up, When He Closed His Eyes Forever More,
I Guess There's No Surprise, That My Friend Sleeping All Day,
Would Not Wake Up, No.
Waking Bert Up, Doesn't Have A Thought, Noooo.

[Bridge: Ernie]
I Know I Should Not Want To Wake Him,
If He Doesn't Explain Why-iy.
Until He Sleeps For The Weekend,
I'll Keep Wondering,
Wonder Why, Why Bert Cannot Wake,
Keeping Him At Stake.

[Verse 3: Ernie]
Waking Bert Up, When Homer Said "D'OH!",
It Doesn't Work.
Bert Is Asleep Though,
But My Ol' Buddy Will Wake, And Think Of Something,
Waking Bert Up, Without Any Thought, Is Just Hard As I Thought.

[Outro: Ernie]
Waking Bert Up, Is Hard As I Thought.
Don't Sleep The Day Away, My Ol' Buddy.
Don't Sleep The Day Away.
Well, I Guess Bert Will Have To Sleep In Now.
