One two three, two two three

I guess I should go to sleep
To start standin' on my own two feet
Been walkin' too long on a dead end street
I guess I should go to sleep

I guess I'll take off my shoes
Head upstairs and watch the news
That's another way to lose these walkin' blues
I guess I'll take off my shoes

Well upstairs, upstaged, and upset
She's been cryin' is probably my best bet yet
Cause I ain't managed to say the right thing yet
Well I guess I should go back to bed

Guess I should go to sleep
It's too hard standin' on my own two feet
Been runnin' too long on an ednless street
Well I guess I should go to sleep
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep

    General CommentAnother countrified lament about a significant other that can't be pleased?.

    "I ain't managed to say the right thing yet..I guess I should go back to bed".
    He describes his situation as a "dead end street", and "running too long on an endless street".

    Like most Jack White tracks, the music is layered and beautiful. Love the country feel of this, almost vaudevillian in the flavor.

    General CommentI swear that you can hear whoever voices Homer Simpson mumbling along with Jack throughout the song
