The Lyrics

She's up nearly every night
Theres something thats not right
Getting light outside, but she can't get her rest
Tossing and turning
Now, shes wandering round not looking her best
Maybe its just me
But she seems dull recently
I now its rough especially without her beauty sleep
Eyes getting baggy
Her hairs a state, she's yawning, looking beat

(Oh-no, she's awoke) Thinks shes got, insomnia
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Think its getting quite severe
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Shes a bad sleeper

Brought her some ear plugs
Expensive knock out drugs
But they wont work, even tried making herself unconcious
Changed our bed mattress
Beats the stuffing out the pillows shes hasnt had enough - sleep
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Alarm clock threw out our window
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Doctor think shes a weirdo
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Shes a bad sleeper

------ saxophone ------

Ooh, (Oh-no, she's awoke) Shes awoke, Insomnia bug has got to her
(Whoa-oh, She's awoke, Can't sleep.Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke. Shes a bad sleeper) Ooh, stop drinking that coffee
(Oh-no, she's awoke) She's awoke, Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke. Can't rest, shes awoke all through the night, ooh
(Oh-no, she's awoke) She's awoke, Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke. Shes a bad sleeper) Got droopy eyes ohh
(Oh-no, she's awoke) She's awoke. Without sleep, she needs sleep
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Oh, without, without, without, without - sleep
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Yeah, yeah, Shes a bad sleeper
(Oh-no, she's awoke. Shes a bad sleeper)Its driving me crazy ooh
(Oh-no, she's awoke) Oh, Shes a bad sleeper

At first I had doubts about Insomnia vs Man Eater ( 4 vs 3 syllables ), but this is so ridiculously close to my sleeping habits it's not even funny ( but it is ). Did my wife write this? Oh, nevermind, Ive been awake all night so there's no way she could have. :) 555

It's well written and some of the lines included are witty and clever. But, the humour didn't really appeal to me, sorry! 545 PS: It's still a really good parody!..

I was up all night trying to turn "Maneater" into an Ann Coulter parody, "Manhater," but it didn't work. For those of you from outside the U.S., imagine Ann Robinson a platinum blonde, all skin and bones, no sense of humor and extreme fascism, and that's Ann Coulter.
