The Lyrics

So Janet's flashing took us by surprise
What Justin did was really not very wise
You'd better just get it out of your head
Worry too much and all you'll be is dead.

How do we sleep?
Oh, how do we sleep at night?

Now we have all of our cows gone mad
The whole thing I think is just rather sad
We can't drink milk and we can't eat beef
We'll all be veggies and eat a leaf.

How do we sleep?
Oh, how do we sleep at night?

There's a flu invading our chicken flocks
It's not a joke, this fact, the news it rocks
So what can we do, oh, what can we say
It seems to keep getting worse day by day.

How do we sleep?
Oh, how do we sleep at night?

Remember John and Yoko, they posed nude
Two Virgins they said, others called it rude
Covered with brown paper in the store
Of course, that just made people buy it more.

How did we sleep?
Oh, how did we sleep at night?

Remember Paul in jail, Japan was so cruel
We cried when we heard but what could we do
He did wrong, he committed a crime
In prison he went to serve his time.

The times were so much simpler then, it's true
We laughed, we loved with so much more to do
The world as we know it ceased to exist
We have boobs on TV, mad cows, a long list.

How do we sleep?
Oh, how do we sleep at night?

Where's All You Need Is Love and Yesterday
They've faded away to shades of gray
Just dig deeper, you'll see they're still there
When the going gets tough in life's despair.

Then we can sleep
Yes, then we can sleep at night.
