Love, Let Me Sleep

You woke up at the crack of dawn
Got out of bed & took a shower
Like you’re Wonder Woman
Ready to use her superpower

You had your bowl of Cheerios
And your cup of morning brew
And now that you woke me up
This what I gotta say to you

Love, my sweet love, let me sleep
I had a hard day at work last night
And when I rolled into the drive
The sun was already shinin’ bright
You know I’d get up with you if I could
I know you think I’m a lazy SOB creep
But love, leave me in peace to sleep

You’re looking at me in disgust
You think I should get out of bed
And I can’t get you to understand
Now your face is turning radish red

You just threw a heavy book at me
And a big pitcher of ice cold water
Like you had just been disappointed
As if you were our youngest daughter

So love, my sweet love, let me sleep
I had a hard day at work last night
And when I rolled into the drive
The sun was already shinin’ bright
You know I’d get up with you if I could
I know you think I’m a lazy SOB creep
But love, leave me in peace to sleep

You got a healthy eight hours last night
You got to take up our queen size bed
While I was out there workin overtime
Sugarplums were dancin’ in your head

So love, my sweet love, let me sleep
I had a hard day at work last night
When my truck rolled into the drive
The sun was already shinin’ bright
And love, my sweet love let me sleep
You know I’d get up with you if I could
I know you think I’m a lazy SOB creep
But love, leave me in peace to sleep

Love, my sweet love, let me sleep
Love, my sweet love, let me sleep
Love, let me sleep
Let me….
Zzzzzzzz
