when i wake up early in the morning
i lift my head, im still yawning
when im in the middle of a dream
stay in bed, float up stream

please dont wake me
no dont shake me
leave me where i am
im only sleeping

everybody seems to think im lazy
i dont mind, i think they're crazy
running everywhere at such a speed
until they find, there's no need

please dont spoil my day
im miles away
and after all, im only sleeping

keepin an eye on the world going by my window
takin my time
lying there and staring at the ceiling
waiting for a sleepy feeling

please dont spoil my day
im miles away
and after all, im only sleeping

    General CommentFloydian.
    Get a grip.
    Tons of bands do covers for famous bands like the Beatles.
    That doesn't mean you should "barf uncontrollably."

    General Commenti didn't know it was a cover, but it's great! it feels so sleepy and has a can't-be-bothered attitude:)
    though it's the opposite of me when i wake up..

    General CommentYeah, dude, get a grip.
    I love this song, I don't care who's cover I hear.
    It makes me think of myself, I'm always so lazy on Saturdays...laying around waiting to drift off again.
    Leave me alone, I'm only sleeping.

    General CommentI'm a format fan and everything, but i think nate kinda butchered this one. That also might be because the original is untouchable.
