The Lyrics

In honor of Thanksgiving...
Tryptophan

They stuffed the craw last night, not tight
Turkey hour two p.m.
Food is gonna be piled mighty high by then
Why do I eat so much? I'll pay the price
I'll try to watch the game
And see the footballs fly

And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I haven't even been watching the show
Oh no no no, it's the tryptophan
Tryptophan, take a little snooze while lying prone

And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I haven't even been watching the show
Oh no no no, it's the tryptophan
Tryptophan, take a little snooze while lying prone

It's not the time or place to diet, kid
Such pleasing sights and smells
I can't seem to keep them open, my eyelids
And all this turkey – ate more than I planned
Amino acids help ya sleep
Tryptophan, the tryptophan

And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I haven't even been watching the show
Oh no no no, it's the tryptophan
Tryptophan, take a little snooze while lying prone

And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I haven't even been watching the show
Oh no no no, it's the tryptophan
Tryptophan, take a little snooze while lying prone

And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time...
And I shouldn't eat that piece of pumpkin pie
And I think I'm gonna sleep a long, long time...
And I shouldn't eat that piece of pumpkin pie
(Based on Rocket Man - Music by Elton John, Lyrics by Bernie Taupin)
