I can't sleep, I can't sleep.

My doctor said I've got to stay in bed. A week at least, a week or three.
But that would drive me crazy.

My lawyer said my case is weak. The witnesses refuse to speak. And you're
Up against a hanging judge and jury.

The boss is on my back. He says he feels there something lacking in the
Progress of my department.

My youngest boy, not yet thirteen, said Dad, drop out, this ain't your
Scene. But my eldest boy just said, Dad, drop dead.

Oh, when things go wrong, they really go wrong. And they rarely go right
For me.
Oh, when things go wrong, they really go wrong. And they rarely go right
For me.

My mother says she's still alive. Please call us up from time to time. If
It's not too much trouble. It's for your father's sake.

My yoga class said take the time to relax, relax, relax. But we're dining
Out with the Shultzes tonight. And I hate the Shultzes.

I never wake up in the morning. 'Cos I never go to sleep at night. I go to
Bed, I take a powder.
Maybe tonight's the night. All the cares of the day. Seem to gather in a
Corner. Like an army of ants. Who are waiting for the moment when the
Lights go out.

I can't sleep, I can't sleep.

Oh, when things go wrong, they really go wrong. And they rarely go right
For me.
Oh, when things go wrong, they really go wrong. And they rarely go right
For me.
