John Entwistle – Sleeping Man lyrics

Who's that knocking at the bottom of my door?
Who's that lying on the floor
Like a fallen meteor
It's the sleeping man.

Tomorrow just slipped away
Whatever happened to yesterday
You play you pay
Sleeping man.

Sandman please leave him alone
Let him out of the twilight zone
Just for once let him answer the phone
Sleeping man.

Sandman please leave him alone
Let him out of the twilight zone
Just for once let him answer the phone
Sleeping man.

After supper eyes shut tight
Night is day and day is night
He's not a pretty sight
Sleeping man.

Face down on the table, drink in his hand
He doesn't hear the noise of the band
With a head full of ideas and eyes full of sand
Lies the sleeping man.

Sandman please leave him alone
Let him out of the twilight zone
Just for once let him answer the phone
Sleeping man.

Sandman please leave him alone
Let him out of the twilight zone
Just for once let him answer the phone
Sleeping man.

(Guitar Solo)

Sing a long lullaby to the sleeping man
Grab some zzz's, sleeping man
Said goodnight again to the sleeping man
See you in your dreams sleeping man.
