Fats Domino – Sleeping On The Job lyrics
Hey man wake up wake up wake up what's wrong
Oh man don't you know your woman is gone
Gone gone where
Man all you got in bed next to you is a wig
A wig what you talkin' 'bout man
Oh man you been sleepin' on the job
Lord have mercy
I should been holdin' her tight
Squeeze 'n every night
But I was out runnin' around yeah
Showing nothing but neglect
Givin' no respect
Till she finally put me down
I got caught
Sleepin' on the job Sleepin' on the job
Caused me to lose my years yeah
Sleepin' on the job sleeping on the job
All that she left was a wig

Well man you know
You win some and you loose some
Yeah guess you're right man
But you know brother
If losin' would make you king
You would own everything
Right on brother
I stayed out all night long
And when I get home
I fall dead asleep yeah
She shook me two three times
But I paid her no mind
Till she finally put me down
I got caught
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Caused me to lose my years yeah
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
All that you left was a wig
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Didn't know what was goin' on yeah
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Next thing I knew she was gone
Than I stayed out all night long
Everynight I get home
I fall dead asleep yeah
She shook me two three times
But I paid her no mind
Till she finally put me down
I got caught
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Caused me to lose my good thing yeah
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Now I ain't got a thing
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
Didn't know what was goin' on yeah
Sleepin' on the job sleepin' on the job
