The Lyrics

Why did I stay out half the night just like before
Finally got home at ten to four
Where I just need to sleep
But not for long
I need to head back out at dawn
So there is something that I need you to do

(Wake me up)
Wake me up in time
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up at five
(Shake me)
Call my name and get me out of bed
(Wake me up)
Can’t be late to work
(I can’t wake up)
My boss’ll go berserk
(Shake me)
I’ll be busted down to file clerk

Now that you know the straits I’m in
You’ve got to help me
Can’t leave this circumstance to chance
Please watch the clock

(Wake me up)
Give my head a swat
(I can’t wake up)
Start the coffee pot
(Aid me)
Get me ready to head out of here
(Wake me up)
Help me wash my hair
(I can’t wake up)
And give me clothes to wear
(Shave me)
Why was I not born a millionaire

(I need some sleep)
(I’ve been hitting the bars, and partying hard)
(I need some sleep)

I won’t get up without a poke without severe prodding
Only you have a chance to wake me

(When you do it I’ll cry and moan and wail and fuss
But get me out in time to catch the morning bus)
It’s been only a minute – so it seems
Now I’m hearing your piercing “wake up” screams
(My aching bones, my swollen tongue, my throbbing head)
(Just let me die now)
(Why won’t you let me sleep?)
This is my life

(Wake me up)
Feeling like I’m dead
(I can’t wake up)
Yank me out of bed
(Raise me)
Pour a glass of water on my head
(Wake me up)
Don’t let me delay
(I can’t wake up)
We do this everyday
(Drag me)
Push me out the door and on my way

(Then you admit)
(Hey there’s no work today, today’s Saturday)
(You lousy #*^%)

Blast it all. Someone took the "Wake me up inside/Wake me up at five" sub-idea before I had a chance.

Thanks Matthias, Jack, AFW, and Jonathan.

This parody is the first one I've read since waking up! Very good, loved the "Pour a glass of water on my head" line. Thes 5s will wake you up.

Excellent fun write...that hints at more than a passing familiarity with your subject?

See, now if WHAM had a 'Wake Me Up' version like THIS- George Michael might still be cool. All 5s!!!

(Artistry) Clever recycling of the "Wake me up" refrain into a whole new meaning. Very difficult song to pace, especially that last coda.

(Artistry) Same sentiment as Agri. Personally, I loved the 'I’ve been hitting the bars, and partying hard' line, and the ending!

(Artistry) Well what can I say, I recorded this one so I know it paces and sounds right to the ear. . .this was a tough round as far as being funny, and in honesty this one got mild laughs out of me, but I think that considering the OS was deeper than typical pop songs, that's quite an accomplishment--oh and this one was fun to perform.
