The Lyrics

The cat ate my dinner
I said I should skin her
Decided that that wasn't wise
I went to the window
But I stubbed my big toe
It grew to tangerine size

I sat down in my chair
With a feeling of despair
Put my head down and started to weep
A day such as this one
Can't wait until it's done
Just some of the reasons I sleep

My phone's disconnected
To stop unexpected
Calls from disturbing my sleep
My alarm clock is broken
It's just one more token
To let me keep counting my sheep

My boss thinks he owns me
Just wait till he phones me
And the phone it just rings and rings
Someday he will regret
Thinking me as his puppet
Moving, when he pulls the strings

My car's been impounded
And I am surrounded
By bills that now are knee-deep
My life is in ruin
My ex-wife is suing
Just some of the reasons I sleep
