The Lyrics

You gotta take a little time
A little time to get some shut-eye
Lots of homework for tonight
Guess I shouldn't have started at nine

This essay I must write
Will keep me up until the sunrise
I want to turn off the light
I'm feeling so very sleep-deprived

Now my eyes
Are all bloodshot and red
Wonder if I can make it to bed
Can't stop now, got homework to do,
This book report is due...

I want to know what sleep is
I don't think I've had it
I want to feel what sleep is
Too bad I can't have it

I wanna take a little time
A little time to crawl in the sheets
I've got nowhere else to hide
My feathered pillow finally lured me

Now my eyes
Are all bloodshot and red
Wonder if I can make it to bed
Can't stop now, got homework to do,
This book report is due...

I want to know what sleep is
I don't think I've had it
I want to feel what sleep is
Too bad I can't have it

I want to know what sleep is
I don't think I've had it
I want to feel what sleep is
Too bad I can't have it

I want to know what sleep is
I don't think I've had it
I want to feel what sleep is
Too bad I can't have it

Nice job. It's been a while, but I remember that late night gotta-write-the-book-report feeling. I can't believe now I stay up writing just for fun on the internet.

Well, I don't know the original, but given that I just pulled an all nighter, this parody strikes a chord, and therefore really has to get 5's. I'm gonna look up the original later.

This brings back so many bad memories of difficult homework, like the time I spent three hours trying to do about two maths questions. And sometimes I'm an insomniac these days as well. Well done.
