Lyrics

Sleep When You're Dead

Written By: Paul Cook

Sleep When You're Dead

You barely ever get
A bit of sleep
You're staying all night with the party crowd
Just like you did every night this week

You're always late for work
The boss wonders where you've been
Well you bat your eyes and apologize
But he knows it's gonna happen again

When the music starts pumping and the party is rocking
Past two A-M
And you're drinking all night gotcha feeling just right
And you seem to not give a damn
Your alarm clock's singing
Your ears are still ringing
From the music still stuck in your head
Tik tok rise and shine buttercup
You can sleep when you're dead (you can sleep when you're dead)
You can sleep when you're dead

Your Mama always says
You should just go on home
Nothing good happens after midnight
But you swear you're doing nothing wrong

Well maybe one day
You''ll change everybody's mind
But for now you'll just keep living your, Red Bull, Rock Star
Kind of life

When the music starts pumping and the party is rocking
Past two A-M
And you're drinking all night gotcha feeling just right
And you seem to not give a damn
Your alarm clock's singing
And your ears are still ringing
From the music stuck in your head
Tik tok rise little darlin'
You can sleep when you're dead (you can sleep when you're dead)

Maybe your Mama's right and you should just go on home
And lay it down
But that's what you're gonna do
When you're laying six feet underground

(Instrumental break)

I used to think I needed sleep to make it through my day
Then I learned it really didn't matter anyway
I just relax and let the music penetrate my soul
I'll get some sleep later on when I'm really old, yeah
You can sleep when your'e dead
