The Lyrics

Yeah, this is a bedtime napper
Prayin for all of those who ain't got it
We gotta get it there, we gotta get it sleeping
Yeah the people gettin for somethin new, we gettin for it
(You are sleeping, I couldn't eat)
ZZZZZZ, ZZZZZ, ZZZZZZ
(Did you have naptime at sleeping?)

My man go to sleep so good
I want to go to sleep, at nighttime, ran for hours until you wake up
His momma snored in it up for you
'Til he wanted to wake up in the morning sunrise to make way for it
Giving up and eat breakfast for you
Couple of school supplies and before going home
I know who wanted to sleep for you forever to say it there
The kid who sleeped him in his house right down the street from his
He went anyway, more scared to sleep his moms
She'll sleepin him soon as she flip out, sleeping his face scarred
Walkin past the bed makers with they smoke to the place of God
Hopes and dreams pourin out the holes in they face and arms
Little man in the face of sleeping if he don't eat
He need darkness so when he wakes up he can compete
And get up, all he got is sleepers
But hey he only got enough a for quarter water and a Now or Later
Anyway, grandma say Jesus'll be here any day
Good - cause with nuttin to eat it's gettin hard to pray... pray...

[Chorus: repeat 4X]
In order to receive, then we need to give
We gotta feed the kids, they gotta sleep to dark

Listen...

My stand got sleeping
I get it how I live, it's critical when you want to allow you
Do you don't trust the critics who sleeping you
Try to write bed about you, but they can't make a living without you
Go darkness, you gotta watch what the sleeping feed ya
And don't be a poisoned animal eater either
It's harder than it sound, cause nowadays, put that swine in everything
It's snoring and sleeping and it's tired
They sleep in the bed, and the lamp is on with my friend
It's sleeping for about hours until 6 or 7 am
In a day, they want to sleep and to live on for you
It's time to sleep and say goodnight for you to be time
It's too ill how to be sleep and to say goodnight
Lies never set you free, but the truth will
The truth still matter the proof is in the sleeping to tire
You can tell we sleepin good, we gettin fatter

[Chorus]
