"Sleep It Off" as written by and Jeremy V Page Christian Oppel....
Pressed against the ceiling
Swaying side to side
Move under or around me
You can't fit into my life
Shoulders bump the buildngs
Knock the passers-by
Move over or around me
'Cause there ain't no room inside

That little hand means stop
That little man means walk
Cross when you want
You either go to jail or gonna sleep it off
Bar to bar police call the ER
One black the black
Go to jail, sleep it off

The streets are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here move along
The streets are only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come

Stumble in the alley
Counting all the stars
The blue lights shining and they twinkle off the walls
Stumble down the hallway
In a crooked crawl
The moonlight shining how they twinkle off the walls

That little hand means stop
That little man means walk
Cross when you want
You either go to jail or gonna sleep it off you go
Bar to bar police call the ER
One black the black
Go to jail sleep it off

These streets are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here girl move along
These streets is only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come

No I don't want to go nahnahnah don't don't take me to the hospital I said
No I don't want to go nahnahnah don't don't take me to the hospital nahnahnah
No no no I don't want to go I said don't don't take me to the hospital
No I don't want to go nahnahnah don't don't take me to the hospital

Those streets are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here just move along
Those streets are only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come

    General Commenthaha, its:

    that little hand means stop
    that little man means walk
    cross when you want
    you're gonna go to jail and sleep it off
    bar to bar, police car to ER

    other than that you pretty much got it, stars is right.. and SHOULDERS bump the buildings

    then the song should make a lot more sense :)

    Song MeaningIt's about a guy who gets drunk one night and is brought to the hospital. It's pretty straightforward.
