The Lyrics

The laments of an insomniac who can't fall asleep.
I stayed up five hours past my bedtime
Thought I could handle it with no prob
Boy, I was in for a big shocker
For my energy this self-dare robbed
No I can’t stay awake during English
I’m snoozing in my book at Math
If I don’t make myself wake up soon
I’m gonna face my old teacher’s wrath

I need to sleep
I need to sleep
I’m feeling drowsy, boy, is this lousy
Take it from me
I should’ve gone to bed before
But now my eyes are getting sore
Find me a bed
So I’ll rest my head
I need to sleep

Spent too much hours playing Smash Bros.
Trying to beat the game’s final boss
Spent too many trips to Starbucks
Now I’m really at a loss
My moves are sluggish and uncertain
I’m dropping everything I hold
But I know I’ll sleep all day when
I get really, really old

I need to sleep
I need to sleep
My eyes are burning, everything’s turning
Help me out please
Mr. Sandman couldn’t pay
A trip, so he just stayed away
My sight is bleary, I feel so dreary
I need to sleep

I need to sleep
I need to sleep
Head’s getting heavy, just like a Chevy
It’s agony
This whole insomnia’s a pest
It’s causing me a load of stress
I’m going crazy, want to be lazy
I need to sleep

My brain is in pain
And my eyes, no surprise
I can’t eat, I can’t read
Counting sheep helps no heap
My head feels like lead
My attitude’s getting rude
I snap back, I attack
Then I fall like a doll
Why can’t I rest? I’m a mess
Have no control on my whole
Don’t need caffeine, it makes me mean

I need to sleep
I need to sleep
Give me some slumber, I’ll be dumber
Just rest in peace
What do I really have to do
Just so I can catch a wink or two
I’m through with awake, I just need a break
I need to sleep
Give me that pillow, ‘til I rest my fill-o
I need to sleep
Goodnight, my friends, it’s now the end
Of my long quest without any rest
Now please be so kind and turn off the light
