The Lyrics

Pyjamas. Pajamas. PJ's. Jim-jams. Those Things What Get Covered In Night Sweat. This dude's got a shitty pair!
Ten o'clock, I'm wi-indi-in' down
Time for Sandman To-own, I-I fro-own
Frown and fro-o-own and fro-own, this blows
Cause I got crap sleepin' clo-othes
Some may a-ask why-y would that grate?
Not like anyone see-ees, loo-ook, ma-ate
My damn brai-ai-ain will say you're lyin'
Cause it hates me, we've gone right off track, sighi-in'

Awful, awful pyja-amas
Causin' me no end of drama
Awful, awful pyjamas
Awful pyjamas

They're full of ho-oles, not just mo-oth bi-ites
They're torn to cra-ap, lose threa-eads a-all night
And at se-ewin', I'm no-o bu-uff
So there's no way to pa-atch 'e-em up

Awful, awful pyjamas
Look like they got chewed by llamas
Awful, awful pyjamas
Awful pyjamas

The vibrant colours have go-ot me stressed
Neo-on green and purple? I-It's a-a me-ess
Swear it ca-an be seen up in spa-ace
Means that sleep doesn't happe-en, ma-ate
Doe-oesn't really help that I
Feel hot and cold throughou-out the-e n-ight
I toss and turn, the blankets swish a-and swa-ay
So if I'm curt, you know what to bla-ame

Awful, awful pyjamas
Sleep's lastin' less than a comma
Awful, awful pyjamas
Awful pyjamas

It's my-y o-only damn pai-air, ma-a-ate
And I just do not ha-ave the-e cha-ange
To go ma-a-ake my base desi-ire
For new PJ's my new life, it's so di-i-ire, yeah-hea-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah

My sleep duds are nea-ear dea-ead no-ow
Soon I'll be tossin' them out, right out
New sleep duds? I do-on't kno-ow no-ow
Can't use day clothes, ain't lots 'round, around
No sleep duds, just ba-are ski-in no-ow?
I've got some standards, that's out, right out

My sleep duds (my sleep duds) are nea-ear dea-ead no-ow (nea-ear dea-ead no-ow)
These ratty things are moth chow, rat chow (fat rat chow)
Damn sleep duds (damn sleep duds) look rea-eal cra-ap no-ow (rea-eal cra-ap no-ow)
Yet I've got sentiment now, somehow (now, somehow)
Crap sleep duds (crap sleep duds), should to-oss the-em ou-out (to-oss the-em ou-out)
Afraid it's my bedtime now, right now (now, right now)

Out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out
Toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out
Toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out
Toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out
Toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out, toss out

Some of those last parts are really soft, but they're there, trust me.

Nothing wrong with goin' commando. I must point out again that you don't need to include spatial hyphens to indicate each and every extended vocalization, it makes for a very difficult read.

Agri, your comment got me thinking, and it made me realise that I have completely forgotten why the hell I did that in the first place. I wanna say it was to help me get the pacing right, but my idiosyncrasies are clearly not shared. Also it just looks tacky. Thanks for the wake-up call!
