The Lyrics

Zzzzzzzz
Mama, I know you have to get some rest
I saw that you were up to 6am.
But you should know by now, that isn't healthy.

You're always watching Nick & Nite
You need some help mom, not Dick Van Dyke.
I may just be your child, but My God, it's 4:30.

The doctor warned you all about
The lifestyle that you could live without.
You look a red-hot mess, and I don't mean lately.
Please...

Mama don't sleep
She's awake till dawn
Mama don't sleep
Even taunts the sun
But you know that in time
She's crashin' this mornin'
She's gonna crash this mornin'
Yeah.

Doctor says it could be insomnia
So not to fight you, and just be tough.
Maybe you'll be alright, if you rest tonight.
But my dad keeps tellin' you to check it out
You're no go without the sleep you do without.
What you need right now is a good long night.
Please...

Mama don't sleep
She's awake till dawn
Mama don't sleep
Even taunts the sun
But you know that in time
She's crashin' this mornin'
She's gonna crash this mornin'
Yeah.

Mommy, mommy, if you could only sleep
You'd feel much better, and not so weak.
Just give it a try right now, just lie on this rug...

Mama don't sleep
She's awake till dawn
Mama don't sleep
Even taunts the sun
But you know that in time
She's crashin' this mornin'
She's gonna crash this mornin'
Yeah.

Just start restin' dear mother
You're becoming a bother....

Seeing noone has voted or commented on this one before me I might be the only one to realise that this was probably written as a tribute for mothers day (Am I Right?), I just wish I had been more active here over the weekend and gotten that in time. 444 and kudos for a smart move that would have gotten the top writers here at least ten votes and comments, I think. Keep such stuff coming and you'll get noticed more I'm sure.
