Barenaked Ladies - Who Needs Sleep lyrics

Now I lay me down not to sleep.
I just get tangled in the sheets.
I swim in sweat 3 inches deep.
Just lay back and claim defeat.

Chapter read and lesson learned.
I turn the lights off while she burned.
So, while she's three hundred degrees,
I throw the sheets off and I freeze.

Lids down, I count sheep,
I count heartbeats.
The only thing that counts is
That I won't sleep.
I countdown, I look around.

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
There's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
There's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)

My hands are locked up tight in fists.
My mind is racing, filled with lists
Of things to do and things I've done.
Another sleepless night's begun.

Lids down, I count sheep,
I count heartbeats.
The only thing that counts is
That I won't sleep.
I countdown, I look around.

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
there's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
There's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)

So much joy in life, so many pleasures all around.
But the pleasure of insomnia is one I've never found.
With all life has to offer there's so much to be enjoyed.
But the pleasures of insomnia are ones I can't avoid.

Lids down, I count sheep,
I count heartbeats.
The only thing that counts is
That I won't sleep.
I countdown, I look around.

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
There's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)

Who needs sleep?
(Well, you're never gonna get it.)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me what's that for?)
Who needs sleep?
(Be happy with what you're getting,
There's a guy's been awake since the Second World War.)
