Here she lies in a fleecy gown
By my side in the eiderdown
But she can't get a ticket to Morning Town
Cause I've got restless legs

Boring though this film may be
Slumber still won't visit me
So long as you stay next to me
For I have restless legs

Milky drink and Sudafed
"That should sort you out" she said
As I kicked myself clean out of the bed
And raised my restless legs

Call me a puppet. Cures I've sought
All in all they've come to naught
I wish it was some astronaut
Who had these restless legs

4:06 and I'm wide awake
Got an uncontrollable urge to take
A 5-mile hike around the Ogwen lake
And stretch these restless legs

No sympathy from Uncle Greg
Nor indeed from Auntie Meg
Well Thank God I'm not Jake the Peg
With an extra restless leg

So come the day when I don't exist
And worms are flying through the graveyard mist
Don't go bothering the exorcist
It's just my restless legs
It's just my restless legs
It's just my restless legs

    General CommentOr alternatively and perhaps more likely, it could have been written after a sleepless night suffering from RLS, or 'restless leg syndrome'.

    General CommentThe missing/wrong lyrics are as follows:
    "Boring though this film may be"
    "And grazed my restless legs"
    "Homeopathic cures I've sought"
    "A 5-mile hike around the Ogwen Lake"

    General CommentSeen the Youtube video Eraserhead tribute? Brilliant.

    Plus I thought it was 'milky drink and soon to bed', but on reflection evilnick's corrections seem to be correct.
