The Beatles — I'm Only Sleeping (Take 1) lyrics

If you find some error in I'm Only Sleeping (Take 1), please submit your corrections to webmaster.
When I wake up early in the morning,
Life my head, I'm still yawning.
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed, float upstream (Float upstream).

Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping.

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy.
I don't mind, I think they're crazy,
Running everywhere at such a speed,
Till they find there's no need (There's no need).

Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away,
And after all, I'm only sleeping.

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,
Taking my time,
Laying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling.

Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away,
And after all, I'm only sleeping.

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,
Taking my time,
Laying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling.

Please don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping.
