"Woke Up Laughing" as written by and Robert Allan Palmer....
I was waiting for you
I was sat in the sun
I could picture your face on the tip of my tongue
I woke up laughing
I broke into a sweat
I broke into a run
You were hot in my heels so I hired a gun
I woke up laughing
I was flat on my back
I was taking a plunge
It was making a stand but my plan was undone
I woke up laughing
Well I planned an escape for the middle of June
But I drug too fast and I fire too soon
I woke up laughing
Woke up laughing

You make yourself a fortune, out in Hong Kong
You sit at home and wonder whether you were wrong
You take a small vacation just to keep sane
You find on your return your home has blown away
You meditate, you make haste
You run a risk, you come late,
You pay a bill, you lose face
You're not fully unaware
Your star or your fate
If you fall do you break
You go to war, you make love
You sign out in a box

I was waiting for you
I was sat in the sun
I could picture your face on the tip of my tongue
I woke up laughing
I broke into a sweat
I broke into a run
You were hot in my heels so I hired a gun
I woke up laughing
I was flat on my back
I was taking a plunge
It was making a stand but my plan was undone
I woke up laughing
Well I planned an escape for the middle of June
But I drug too fast and I fire too soon
I woke up laughing
Woke up laughing

You make yourself a fortune, out in Hong Kong
You sit at home and wonder whether you were wrong
You take a small vacation just to keep sane
You find on your return your home has blown away
You meditate, you make haste
You run a risk, you come late,
You pay a bill, you lose face
You're not fully unaware
Your star or your fate
If you fall do you break
You go to war, you make love
You sign out in a box

    General CommentIt may seem insignificant to some, but lyrics are missing from this and what is here is out of order. Either that, or there is more than one version of this song. This song is on my "Addictions Vol 1" greatest hits album from Robert Palmer, if there are other versions, please let me know.
