The Lyrics

Inspired by my friend Jimmy Ammerman's MOTHER, who actually , and truly, shook the rafters in their house when I spent a weekend at his house years ago. In this parody, however, I am the snore-er
.
I am sleeping, hear me snore
I slumber too loud to ignore
I've been known to wake the dead, my wife contends
Now my walls lack much decor
Stuff rattles right down to the floor
And I've lost the will to put them back again

Oh, yes she did cry
When her eardrums burst,she winced
And ev-en the mice
Are packin' up their tents
And I thought that, they could take anything
I was wrong (wrong)
My snores convinced 'em all (convinced 'em all)
They are leavin'!

My wife stuffed her ears with cotton
Didn't work like she had thought and
She had had enough, and hatched an evil scheme
Well I knew she had come unhinged
And was no novice to revenge
Though I think my crucifiction's too extreme

(A huge crowd gathers round, drawn by my thunderous snores after I'd fallen asleep on the cross)

Oh, yes my demise
She was watchin' with a grin
And ev-en the flies
Don't dare come near this din
And I thought that, they could stand anything
I was wrong
My snores convinced 'em all
They're all leavin'!

I was fadin' on the cross
When I met my future boss
He had heard my snorin' roar and formed a plan
I'd kill vermin embryos
When to my snores they're exposed
And now I'm known as Mister Orkin Man

Oh, yes I am prized
There's no need to fumigate
I just spend the night
And vermin leave the state
If you want me, I'll evict everything
I am loud (loud)
I use no chemicals (no chemicals)
I'm just snorin'

Fade Out

I am zzzzzzzzzzz
I am zzzzzzzzzzz
I am zzzzzzzzzzz
I am zzzzzzzzzzz

555 for this sleeper. "Well I knew she had come unhinged And was no novice to revenge Though I think my crucifiction's too extreme" made me LOL!

Well, looks like I screwed myself again. I thought the auto-fill function that keeps putting the wrong title in here was fixed, but NO!!! I am resubmitting this tomorrow, and asking Chuckie to delete this one. Thanks to Rick C., alvin rhodes, AFW, Carol, Peter Anderson, and Mathias for reading and commenting on this. BTW., the real title to this is I AM SLEEPING (HEAR ME SNORE).

Before you do that, wanted to tell you that "crucifiction" was a GREAT pun on "crucifixion" and "fiction"!!!! 555, and yes, I was really expecting a completely different theme from the title :)

Well, if you are resubmitting this I'll leave my more thoughtful comment there. 5s.
