"Can't Go To Sleep"

Parody Written by:

Phil Nelson

The Lyrics

Lights go out, I hear the clock
Ticking loud, my system's shocked
And I can't go to sleep at all
Think I'll unplug it from the wall, yeah

It still continues to go
It runs on batteries, oh
I rip out the batteries
I once again can sleep in peace, I think

All right
All right

Hear a leak that never stops
Thought it was over after the clock
I close the bathroom door
But I still am hearing it more, this stinks

Neighbors left radio on
While they sleep, I hear its songs
They wake up, turn it louder
Wish all these noises were gone, I say

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no

Oh no
Oh no

I can never get to sleep
No, can never get to sleep
I can never get to sleep


Home, home, where I can't fall asleep
Home, home, where I can't fall asleep
Home, home, where I can't fall asleep
Home, home, where I can't fall asleep

Way better than mine. And far too close to my own situation, what with people being loud outside my door, people being loud above me, and then freaking *construction* across the lawn... 5'd.

Haha! Good job! I feel this way all the time (I think I have insomnia) Oh, and by the way, if you liked this song, check out my "Do I Make You Proud" called "I Don't Sleep Enough" This was great and because I have a hard time sleeping. 555!
