So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eye
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head

Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

You live with straights who tell you, you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day

Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years

Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

    General CommentFrom what I know, Paul was extremely narcissistic and tried to run the Beatles. A lot of resentment, from all the Beatles could be expected.
