The Lyrics

There are multiple causes of sleep disorders. Most, if you think for a minute, are easily recognizable. For instance, writing parodies at 2am. Other factors listed below.
[intro]

I could use some sleep

It's looking like the sun's,
Coming up
I'm really really tired (tired, tired)

Of countin' stupid sheep!

It's been like this for weeks,
Maybe months,
Don't know what I'm thinkin'

There's not a moments rest here at home

Toss and turn my queen-sized mattress too small
I don't get the sleep (sleep, sleep)

I won't get my sleep to-night
Never do I find relief I think it's night shift work

I won't get my sleep (I sure could use it)
Really need to rest - my - mind
'cause I do believe my IQ's dippin' low,
uh uh uh!,
Man I need some sleep!


I've cut down on caffeine

To just 6 cans a day!,
Of that Coke,
I'd say I've made some progress! (progress? oh yes!),

My domicile is clean

Except for all the dust!,
(that's no joke!),
Oh am I s'posed to vaccuum?!

All that housework's not really my style!

Toss and turn the queen-sized mattress too hard
I don't get the sleep (sleep, sleep)

I won't get my sleep to-night
Never do I find relief I think it's night shift work

I won't get my sleep (I sure could use it)
Really need to rest - my - eyes
'cause I do believe my mind is going slow,
duh duh duh!,
Man I need some sleep!

[short solo with incomprehensible mumbling and police
sirens, which *always* makes me sleep well. Sigh...]

(If I could find that, restful, moment)

Gotta get some sleep (sleep, sleep),

It's looking like the sun's,
Coming up,
Eyes are really blinkin'

There's not a moments rest that I own
I don't get the sleep (but I could use it)
I won't get my sleep to-night
Never do I find relief I think I'm overworked
(Whaa! Whaa! Whaa!)
I could use some zzz's (oh that I'd cherish)
Man I need some sleep (seem drowsy at this time)
Sorry but it's you I leave my wife just called me so
Oh oh oh!
In bed not asleep!

DKTOS? Trust me, I'll vouch for Jack here, the pacing is not only good - it's very, very good. Having on occasions had this problem myself I can relate too. All 5s! :-)

I liked this one, Jack. About your list for the causes of insomnia, that's not true, hmm? Except maybe shift work. 5's

Thanks Peter for the comment and MP3.

Thanks Alvin, strangely enough my better ideas come when I'm about half sleep-deprived (4.5 hours a day instead of 6-7). I remember the dreams I have with excellent clarity and sometimes for weeks.
Thanks Carol

Thanks Pat. I Googled the real causes of insomia and while sex is not one of them, the others I listed were. Small(and hard) Mattress and Sounds fall under enviornmental factors and Soda has caffeine which is a factor. Shift work upsets Circadian patterns. The 'something else' is stress which is also a contributor to temporary insomnia.

I've heard that sleep can actually be one of causes of insomia... for women... if the man falls asleep during the first seconds of pillow talk. Not that that has ever happened to me. (I never stay around for pillow talk, I think taking off quickly is the compassionate thing to do to avoid the risk of falling asleep and stress a woman like that). :-)
