"I'm Only Sleeping" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
When I wake up
Early in the morning,
Lift my head,
I'm still yawnin',
Wake up in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed,
Float upstreamâ?¦
[Float upstream]

Please don't wake me,
No, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am
I'm only sleepin'

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy.
I don't mind,
I think they're crazy!
Runnin' everywhere at such a speed,
Till they find,
There's no meâ?¦
[there's no me]

Please don't spoil my day,
I'm miles away,
And after all,
I'm only sleepin'

Keepin' an eye
On the world goin' by
My window.
Takin' my time,
Lying here and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feelingâ?¦

Please don't spoil my day,
I'm miles away,
And after all,
I'm only sleepin'

Keepin' an eye
On the world goin' by
My window.
Takin' my time,
When I wake up
Early in the morning
Lift my head
I'm still yawnin'
Wake up in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed,
Float upstreamâ?¦
[Float upstream]

Sleepin'
Sleepin'
Sleepin'
Sleepin'

    General CommentThese lyrics were written by John Lennon...

    I think The Vines have done a lovely cover of the Beatles' song. It's so nice to sit back and listen to it. It's all about dreaming, and taking your time in the world.

    General CommentSolastsummer, you should be stoned to death in the middle of times square for saying these lyrics "rather suck" yeah. I have to say the Vines did justice to this great beatles song.

    General Commenti guess no one at first realized it was a beatles song. but of course 'this lyrics suck' right considering john lennon (one of the best lyricst of all time) wrote it, just sucks. *sarcasm* cool song.
