Gotta find out who's a callin' you
When it ain't me a callin'
Gotta put a stop to your stallin'
Then maybe I can get some sleep.

Gonna engage Dick Tracy
I might retain Perry Mason
To investigate this situation
Then maybe I can get some sleep.

(Gonna have to teach you a lesson
On how to recognize love's blessin'
Till then I'll just have to keep me guessin'
And you'll never ever get no sleep.)

Has someone been a stealing my sugar
Has someone been a singing my song
Has there been a hand in the cookie jar
Has someone been a eatin' my honeycomb.

Gonna get you down to the courthouse
I'm sick and tired of bein' a man-mouse
I'll get us a licence to keep house
Then maybe I can get some sleep.

Has someone been a stealing my sugar
Has someone been a singing my song
Has there been a hand in the cookie jar
Has someone been a eatin' my honeycomb.

Gonna get you down to the courthouse
I'm sick and tired of bein' a man-mouse
I'll get us a licence to keep house
Then maybe I can get some sleep.

We'll, get us a licence to keep house
Then maybe we can get some sleep.

(Honey, honey, you're not tired are ya
Honey, wake up oh, anymore
All ya ever do is sleep, Oh well)
