The Lyrics

Insomnia due to a lousy mattress sucks big time. I assure you, it is a miserable time. And with the holidays coming around I figured a lot of people may be staying at relatives places and having to sleep on a crappy bed, cot, couch, pullout, air-mattress, etc. So in light of this, I present... "Can't Sleep On That".
Intro: Where am I to sleep? I wanna sleep now
Tell me, where am I to sleep
If I wanna sleep now?
Where am I to sleep? I wanna sleep now!
Where am I to sleep? I wanna sleep now!
Cuz I…

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that, won’t sleep on that
Can’t sleep on that, don’t sleep on that
Oh no I can’t sleep on that
Won’t sleep on that
Can’t sleep on that, don’t sleep on that

Verse 1: I have trouble sleepin’
My bed really does hurt my back
Like laying on some nails
Feel a poke it makes me wail!
Ouchie!
How I get a nap in
When my mattress is full of tacks?
Like laying on some rocks
Plus it smells like an old sock
When I wake up at night I’m saying…

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Man it really hurts me
Can’t sleep on that
A real bad feeling
Don’t sleep on that
I can’t sleep on that!
Can’t sleep on that
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Never ever!
Can’t sleep on that
Get off it!
Don’t sleep on that!

Verse 2: I say people! (What!?)
I am sleep deprived!
I’m sleepin’ on sharpened knives
When I lay down at night I cry!
Help me someone!
How I get to restin’
While my bed frame is warped like that?!
Just like the Gateway Arch!
It’s been that way since last March!
Ouchie!
I don’t get the ladies
Cuz my blanket smells like a cat
But I don’t own cat!
What the heck is up with that?
Cuz now all of the ladies sayin’

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that, won’t sleep on that
Can’t sleep on that, don’t sleep on that
No romancin’
Can’t sleep on that, won’t sleep on that
Can’t sleep on that, don’t sleep on that
Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na!

Breakdown: Where am I to sleep
If I wanna sleep now?
Where am I to sleep
Get that mattress out my house!
Trash! Let’s go!
Get that mattress out my house!
Trash! Let’s go!

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Man it really hurts me
Can’t sleep on that
A real bad feeling
Don’t sleep on that
I can’t sleep on that!
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Never ever!
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Get off it!
Don’t sleep on that!

Verse 3: How I start my dreamin’
When my mattress is my own Hell?
It causes night terrors
I made a bad sleep place error!
No crap Sherlock!
Now I start to thinkin’
I should really sleep somewhere else
I just might try the floor
But then that just hurts me more
Listen to me!

Breakdown: I spite it! When I’m sleepin’ yeah!
Ignite it! Watch it burn! Burn! Burn!
I’ll trash it! In my dumpster yeah!
I’ll slash it! Into shreds across my floor!

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Man it really hurts me
Can’t sleep on that
A real bad feeling
Don’t sleep on that
I can’t sleep on that!
Can’t sleep on that!
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Never ever
Can’t sleep on that
Get off it!
Don’t sleep on it!
Sha-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba

Breakdown: Where am I to sleep
If I wanna sleep now?
Where am I to sleep
Get that mattress out my house!
Trash! Let’s go!
Get that mattress out my house!
Trash! Let’s go!

Chorus: Can’t sleep on that
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Man it really hurts me
Can’t sleep on that
A real bad feeling
Don’t sleep on that
I can’t sleep on that!
Can’t sleep on that!
Oh no I won’t sleep on that
Get up off it!
Can’t sleep on that!
No romancin’!
Don’t sleep on that!
I CAN’T SLEEP ON THAT!
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Won’t sleep on that (Wow no!)
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Don’t sleep on that (I’m sleepless baby, every night)
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Won’t sleep on that (Oooooo!)
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Don’t sleep on that! (Throw you’re back out need some meds)
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Won’t sleep on that (Oooooo!)
Can’t sleep on that (can’t sleep on that)
Don’t sleep on that! (Throw you’re back out need some meds)

I can identify with this one. If I stay at someone's house I'll sometimes just sleep on the floor.

(Artistry) This one needs a video. Great idea that most of us can relate to.

Should be 555? Let me sleep on that....nah, no need!
bobpiecheese - January 09, 2012 - Report this comment
(Artistry) I can sympathise, but the other way around: I've found that hotels and other people's beds are much more comfortable. Hell, I've had better sleeps on couches than on my own bed. Great parody here, although the choruses could've used some polishing. 555!

Pretty repetitive OS you made it much better with clever lyrics my favorite segment was: "I don’t get the ladies Cuz my blanket smells like a cat But I don’t own cat! What the heck is up with that?" Brilliant!

Got very repetitive for me but not bad, but this one could have been stronger in my opinion, the choruses--well it just became very predictable
