Sleep

Parody of Life in a Nutshell by the Barenaked Ladies. Dedicated to my floormate Lori, and to a lesser extent to my mom. *grin*

When I was three
I always got it whenever I wanted
Now I’m nineteen
And still I found myself undaunted.

I’m like a baby or like a cat
They both can sleep wherever they’re at and still,
It’s never enough, it’s never enough,
It’s never enough.

But I don’t tend to worry ‘bout the things that other people say
When I’m sleeping I can’t make out what they’re saying anyway.
Call me crazy but it really doesn’t matter,
All that matters to me is sleeeeeeeeep.

My life in a nutshell,
No way, would I want you to wake me?
It’s not that easy ‘cause my naps
They’re often a little too deeeeeeeep.
Too deeeeeep!

You’d be surprised, on campus I’ve tried sleeping everywhere.
I think I’ve tried every couch and every comfy chair.
Just gotta set an alarm on my phone.
If it’s a good day I won’t hear the tone!
And still, it’s never enough, it’s never enough
It’s never enough.

But I don’t tend to worry ‘bout the things that other people say
When I’m sleeping I can’t make out what they’re saying anyway.
Call me crazy but it really doesn’t matter,
All that matters to me is sleeeeeeeeep.

My life in a nutshell,
No way, would I want you to wake me?
It’s not that easy ‘cause my naps
They’re often a little too deeeeeeeep.
Too deeeeeep!

Well, I fell asleep, with no one there to wake me up again.
Then she came to me,
And only her messages stopped me from snoring my life away.
“You’re late for class!”

And that’s why my life in a nutshell,
No way, would I want you to wake me?
It’s not that easy ‘cause my naps
They’re often a little too deep!
And I don’t tend to worry ‘bout the things that other people say
When I’m sleeping I can’t make out what they’re saying anyway.
Call me crazy but it really doesn’t matter,
All that matters to me is sleep!
