"Lazyhead & Sleepybones" as written by John Flansburgh and John Linnell....
Lazy Head and Sleepy Bones
Always disagree
Though everybody says they should be friends
They're too tired to see

When Sleepy Bones says he's feeling tired
Lazy Head wants to rest
When Lazy Head says it's "number one"
Sleepy Bones says it's "best"

When Lazy Head uses imagination
Sleepy Bones daydreams
Sleepy Bones says, "It's not what it looks like"
And Lazy Head says, "It's not what it seems"

Lazy Head and Sleepy Bones
Always disagree
Though everybody says they should be friends
They're too tired to see

When Lazy Head says somebody's "skinny"
Sleepy Bones says "thin"
When Sleepy Bones says "identical"
Lazy Head says "twin"

When Lazy Head says the window is "closed"
Sleepy Bones says it's "shut"
When Sleepy Bones says that something "isn't"
Lazy Head says, "It's not"

Lazy Head and Sleepy Bones
Both take naps so long
And even though they should be friends
They can't get along

Lazy Head and Sleepy Bones
Always disagree
Though everybody says they should be friends
They're too tired to see

    General CommentLazyhead and Sleepy bones is about two people who are essentially the same person. Despite this they always fight on things. Sometimes when two people are too similar they argue rather than get along. It happens all the time

    General CommentI love this song. It really hits at the center of the hodgepodge that is most philisophical battles. Republicans and Democrats, Christians and Wiccans, Socialists and Capitalists - almost any dialectical pair you can think of - are always at each other throats when if you step back and think about it they're saying the same thing. Clever song.
