The Lyrics

This title's been used before. I apologize to Hindibunny, neminem, and Dan Giordano, who did the other "Waking up is Hard to do"s. I hope you enjoy this song anyway.
Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Please let me sleep a little while
When I'm tired, it's hard to smile
Got to sleep the whole day through
'Cause waking up is hard to do

I'm so sleepy, I cannot stand
Think the Sandman used too much sand
Let me sleep or I'll kick you
Waking up is hard to do

They say that waking up is hard to do
Now I know, I know that it's true
Don't say I must awaken
Instead of waking up I wish that I was sleeping in again

I beg of you, please let me sleep
Without my rest, I'll surely weep
Without sleep, joy bids me adieu
'Cause waking up is hard to do

Excellent work, especially for a 12-year old. And I'm not biased or anything. Love that sandman line; great stuff.

Did a version myself about 10 years ago, but if you're really 12, as Claude (Dad?) says, 555, and you've got a great future ahead of yourself wasting your life writing parodies instead of getting a real job.

My God this song is so TRUE. . .I was suppossed to be in at work at 8am this morning, I just couldn't get up until 9, so I ended up being almost 2 and half hours late--thank goodness my job is commission based so I'm allowed to be as late as I want.
