Don't sing me lullabies
I won't close my eyes,
I can't close my eyes
It's true,
I'm doomed
'til dawn
shines through
Got too many things to do
Got friends to see,
I can't miss a thing
It's true,
I'm through
I'm screwed,
unglued

I won't close my eyes, I can't close my eyes,
I never close my eyes
You see, they're always there with funny hair,
Oh, I'm so scared

It happens to me every night
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
They always want to take a bite
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
And if you think this isn't real
I'll show you wounds that never heal
To them I'm just a happy meal
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

Make the coffee black as night
Help me through the night
I know their appetite for me
I'm meat
but I'm sweet
as can be
And if I do too much booze
I begin to snooze
I hear the big old floppy shoes
It's true,
I'm stew,
unchewed

I won't close my eyes, I can't close my eyes,
I never close my eyes
See, they're always there with that funny hair,
Oh, I'm so scared

It happens to me every night
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
They always want to take a bite
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
And if you think this isn't real
I'll show you wounds that never heal
To them I'm just a happy meal
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

    General CommentThis song isn't call Clowns Will Eat Me. It's title is, "Can't Sleep, Clowns Will Eat Me." Which is 1/2 lame because when you search for it, it doesn't come up. At one point this song was a Japan-only release.

    General Commentyea new dawns rite. it is irritatin.

    this song reminds me of a guy i no. we wer walkin 2 geva an i spotted sum dude wearin a clownmask and laughed, pointin it to out him. He turnd white as a sheet and then mutterd that he didn like clowns......
    oops.....
    Neway its all about the irrational fears we get. I think its a fear of humiliation but i will go wiv wot my mate and Aerosmithlover say
    "Clowns are evil"
    if anyone els is scard of (or just plain despises) clowns i will refer you to
    ihateclowns.com
    me i always thought that clowns were funny, if quite irritating....
