I'm Only Sleeping


When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, Iím still yawning
When Iím in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
 
Please donít wake me, no donít shake me
Leave me where I am, Iím only sleeping
 
Everybody seems to think Iím lazy
I donít mind, I think theyíre crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find thereís no need (thereís no need)
 
Please donít spoil my day, Iím miles away
And after all, Iím only sleeping
 
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time, lying there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling
 
Please donít spoil my day, Iím miles away
And after all, Iím only sleeping
 
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time
 
When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, Iím still yawning
When Iím in the middle of a dream
Staying in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
 
Please donít wake me, no donít shake me,
Leave me where I am, Iím only sleeping
