The Lyrics

I thankfully don't suffer from insomnia but a couple of my friends do so this one goes out to them! I know you're still awake so you can read this!
Insomnia Sucks!

Insomnia… I’m never sleepy
Insomnia… It makes me weepy
It’s a pity… Still awake
It’s a pity… Stuck on my cot
It’s a pity… My blankets of cotton
Are simply tauntin’, they’re pretty rotten

At night when you’re all sleeping, It's my rile, vile mess
A case that’s incurable, you sleepers are blessed
A nap would be awesome when I'm snug in my bed
There’s no rest for the weary cause it's pretty complex
Doesn't take Einstein, mate, to go sleep when sleepy
My case is a bummer cause I sure seem creepy
A glimpse of Mr. Sandman would be sweet
Sheep heap and I'm countin' them leap but I'm beat
Can't turn of my brain, So I sneer at the damn moon
Until it is sunny inside my bedroom
I know I'd survive in "A Nightmare on Elm Street"
Freddy's pacing, He won't get a chance to go slash me
Sawin' wood, Beddy-Bye and Hit the Hay
Those phrases are so dumb, Can't follow what they say
REM's hindered, Michael Stipe save the day
No covers of down help

Insomnia (Insomnia)... It's pretty sucky (It's pretty sucky)
Insomnia (Bed Post)... Though pillow's fluffy (Hit the snooze)
It's so shitty... In dismay! (Shitty, In dismay)
It's so shitty... Try all I want (Try all I want)
It's so shitty... Till I'm in a coffin (Till I'm in a coffin, yeah)
Sleep is no option (Sleep is no option), It's all I wanted...

Damn, Just let me sleep!

Snoozin', Snoozin' Daily
Snoozin', Snoozin' Lazy
Snoozin, Snoozin'
Sleepin' Begging!
Snoozin', Snoozin' Wishing
Snoozin', Snoozin'
Snoozin', Snoozin'
Snoozin', Snoozin'
Snoozin' Hardly...

No avail, It's getting stale, Bedtime with no dreamin'
As soon as I slip in the sheets, It's such a goofy feelin'
I should be sleepy but not at all
The strife of a wide-eyed failure, Your hours fly but mine crawl
I don't get drowsy, Where I'm quiet and I'm cozy on my bed all night
I'm awake, You're wearing socks and jammies (That's right)
Suck your thumbs, hold teddy bears, close eyed, I envy you
Flossin' and teeth brushin', Dental hygeine's needed too
Jealous cause your passed out... So I'm snide
I might exercise but won't reach a tiredness
Jogging and hiking it won't do crap, It's my plight
I won't go no mo time's blown and I groan, man
Till old and gray
And I am embalmed in the grave
I'll be finally laid, Each day it's the same
From bunk beds to futons
And four posters, I've used lots
Sleeping for me is just gruesome
Really tough!

Insomnia (Insomnia)... It happens nightly (Sleep's not for this dude)
Insomnia... It's quite unsightly
Isn't pretty (The clock tolls)... Color's drained (All drained)
Isn't pretty... My eyes are blood shot (That's right)
Isn't pretty... Approach me with caution (Yup, yup)
I keep on yawnin', Slumber I'm wantin'

God, Let me sleep...

Snorin', Snorin' Proudly
Snorin', Snorin' Loudly
Snorin', Snorin'
Sleepin' Begging
Snorin', Snorin' Soundly
Snorin', Snorin'
Snorin', Snorin'
Snorin', Snorin' Barely...

Uh, yeah, uh, uh, "Just Sleep!" yells my spouse, uh, yeah
Laid down but am definitely not passed out
Pillow! Pillow!
Hey, I'm still awake and pretty pissed
Sleepin' Beauty went to bed!
Yeah, Sugar plums, sugar plums, Not in my head, I'm glum
Even that Snow White is now fast asleep, Bite me
Rip Van Winkle! Rip Van Winkle! Not this lad!

Rest in peace y'all, rest in peace, rest in peace
(Catch these Z's, Yeah!)
Insomnia Sucks!!!

It's a little hard to wrap ones brain and tongue on the unusual pronouncing of "In-Som-NEE-uh" that the parody demands. The rap verses were great, though, absolutely killer rhymes on the end lines and the internal rhymes. Why couldn't you have had the breakdown be "Tossin and turnin!/tossin' and turnin'!/tossin' and turnin!"...??? Next time, try melatonin, or watch a Tarkovsky movie.

I know that pain, especially when I do not need it after my course assignment have been finished.

Agrimorfee: Tarkovsky may drive you into the arms of Morpheus with "Solaris" or "The Mirror," but if you want slowness leavened with purpose and genius I recommend Bela Tarr's magnificent "The Turin Horse," as well as his 7-hour masterpiece "Satantango."

This parody is aw... zzzzzzzz... ful. And yes, boring rhymes with snoring.

D'Oh! I like tossin' turnin' a lot more than snorin', snorin' because it fits the parody much better. If I ever get around to recording this I'm going to change it to that. Thanks Aggy.

(Artistry) I know that feel, bro. Mostly because it's too hot with the quilt on but too cold with it off. Anyway, great parody here, though I agree with Agri on the pronunciation of the title (I would've gone with "damn in-som-nya" but that's me). 555 restless nights!

I kinda have to agree with Grim's points: The pronunciation of In-som-NEE-uh was kinda awkward, and the "bridge(?)" could have used some sprucing up. But the two main verses were spot on and hilarious! A few tweaks, and this could be one of your best!

(Artistry) You murdered the verses! They were fantastic! I see what you mena about those bridges and the outro, it's hard to vary something that's so small and repetitious, and the title was hard to say (a bit weird off the tongue), but I loved this. So great!
