I'm lying wide awake
It’s almost one o’clock by now
I’m lying wide awake
I’m trying hard to get to sleep
So how long will it take?

It’s almost two o’clock by now
My eyes are open wide
I could give up and read a book
But I still have some pride

It’s almost three o’clock by now
I hear that ticking clock
Remind me to get rid of it
And lose that damn tick-tock

It’s almost four o’clock by now
I haven’t slept a wink
I’ve tried to clear my mind to sleep
Is harder than you’d think

It’s almost five o’clock by now
Those clock hands slowly crawl
And in the distance far away
I hear a rooster call

It’s almost six o’clock by now
Some light is seeping in
I might as well get out of bed
Sometimes you just can’t win

It’s really all my fault you know
I had that little nap
That really messed my schedule up
And now I feel like crap

I need another nap
