"I Am Champagne, You Are Shit" as written by and Bob/styne Merrill....
The tiny blonde hairs on your arm keep me up at night
And I always forget to tell you
Feeling your pulse next to mine keeps me up at night
And I always forget to tell you

Don't wake up, please,
Don't wake up, Don't wake up
Don't wake up

Stay where you are
Let me watch you while you sleep comes on
Don't move.
So I can learn your breathing patterns

Slow down you idiot,
Slow down you're trembling,
Slow down

But if you woke up, and opened wide
Your eye contact alone would
Burn a hole into my retina
And if you kissed me
Sparks and nerves
A wave of wide awake
From the thin of my lips
I'll try not to blink

And through your tangled hair
Your eyelids are dancing
Pretending I don't care
But I'm guessing what you're dreaming

I wonder how this worked out?
Ethical cat and mouse
Ethanol, are we allowed?
Don't wake up, Keep it down
Idiot, please slow down

Just a little whisper and I am deaf in one ear again

The words that you said under your breath seem to have changed everthing

Sparks and nerves
I'm wide awake
From the thin of my lips
I'll try not to blink
Clap your hands and hold your head
You won't understand
So stay in bed
Whispers and tiptoes and a twisted ankle
I'm gonna slow dance my way out of here

You should have said so
You should have said something
Your eye contact alone would burn a hole into my retina.
And if you kiss(ed) me
(dunno about this next bit)

And through your tangled hair your eyelids are dancing.
Pretending I don't care I'm guessing what you're dreaming.

Wonder how this worked out,
(not sure about this bit either)
Don't wake up, keep it down,
Idiot, please slow down.

Just a little whisper I'm deaf in one ear again.
Just a little whisper.
The words that you say under your breath seem to have changed everything.
(not sure about most of the next bit)

Should have said so, should have said something.
Should have said, should have said something.

    General Commenti think after "The words that you say under your breath seem to have changed everything." he says:

    sparks and (hands?). wide awake. i'll bend all my limbs, i'll try not to break. cross your arms, hold your head; you wont understand, so stay up here. whispers and tip toes and a twisted ankle I'm gonna (smile? ) my way out of here

    General CommentThis is what I have from the vinyl sleeve. I do think the "sleep comes on, don't move" bit that you have does sound good, maybe I missed it when I was copying it down.

    The tiny blonde hairs on your arm keep me up at night
    And I always forget to tell you
    Feeling your pulse next to mine keeps me up at night
    And I always forget to tell you

    Don't wake up, please,
    Don't wake up, Don't wake up
    Don't wake up

    Stay where you are
    Let me watch you while you sleep
    So I can learn your breathing patterns

    Slow down you idiot,
    Slow down you're trembling,
    Slow down

    But if you woke up, and opened wide
    Your eye contact alone would
    Burn a hole into my retina
    And if you kissed me
    Sparks and nerves
    A wave of wide awake
    From the thin of my lips
    I'll try not to blink

    And through your tangled hair
    Your eyelids are dancing
    Pretending I don't care
    But I'm guessing what you're dreaming

    I wonder how this worked out?
    Ethical cat and mouse
    Ethanol, are we allowed?
    Don't wake up, Keep it down
    Idiot, please slow down

    Just a little whisper and I am deaf in one ear again

    The words that you said under your breath seem to have changed everthing

    Sparks and nerves
    I'm wide awake
    From the thin of my lips
    I'll try not to blink
    Clap your hands and hold your head
    You won't understand
    So stay in bed
    Whispers and tiptoes and a twisted ankle
    I'm gonna slow dance my way out of here

    You should have said so
    You should have said something
