I got some sleep and I needed it
Not a lot, just a little bit
Someone's always tryin' to keep me from it

It's a cryin' shame
It's a royal pain in the neck
I'm just tryin' to get by
With my pride a little bit intact

Ask me any question and I'll level with you
I didn't ask but anything but bein' with you
That's the only thing I was born to do

And they're all insane
Such a royal pain in the neck
I'm just tryin' to get by
With my pride a little bit intact

Another day is put to the test
Lord knows I'm doin' my best
Never a brother, always a guest

It's a cryin' shame
It's a royal pain in the neck
I'm just tryin' to get by
With my pride a little bit intact

And they're all insane
Such a royal pain in the neck
I'm just tryin' to get by
With my pride just a little bit intact
