The Lyrics

When I first heard the song, "Who Needs Sleep?" I felt like it described my nights exactly. But I decided to throw in a few, umm, talking sheep to make things interesting. The scenario is: I'm basically pulling an all-nighter plus hanging out with college friends via telephone, and I've gotten incredibly used to it, but the Sleep Sheep (hallucinations) want me to give it up and get some Z's.
Now I lay me down (not) to sleep
Textbooks aligned across the sheets
Smother in papers six feet deep
I can't lay back and claim defeat......

(3. a.m)
Chapter read and lesson learned
Into my brain my ringtone burns
While my energy level falls
I take a three-hour phone call

(The Sleep Sheep sing):
Lie down, and count sheep
Or count heartbeats

(I sing)
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I move around

Who needs sleep?
I am never gonna get it
Forget sleep!
Not necessary
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what you're getting
I have been awake so long
That it's getting scary


My books are clutched within my fists
It's six a.m. I'm filled with lists
of things that I need to get done
Another school morning's begun

(The Sleep Sheep sing):
Lie down, and count sheep
Or count heartbeats

(I sing)
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I move around

Who needs sleep?
I am never gonna get it
Forget sleep!
Not necessary
Who needs sleep?
We can all function without it
I have been awake so long
That it's getting scary


Who needs sleep?
I am never gonna get it
Forget sleep!
Not necessary
Who needs sleep?
We can all function without it
I have been awake so long
That it's getting scary

There's so much joy in life,
Opportunities all around
A constant state of insomnia
is how success is found

(The Sleep Sheep sing:)
With all life has to offer,
No need to be paranoid
You have got to resume sleeping
Or we'll really get annoyed

(The Sleep Sheep sing):
Lie down, and count sheep
Or count heartbeats

(I sing)
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I move around
Hala Hala Hala

Who needs sleep?
I am never gonna get it
Forget sleep!
Not necessary
Who needs sleep?
We can all function without it
I have been awake so long
That it's getting scary
