SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD
(Smith/Gallup/Cooper/Thompson)

?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD

BUT UNTIL THEN? ?

THEY TOLD ME I WOULD LIVE FOREVER
IF I KEPT IT CLEAN
THEY SAID I WOULD BE THE CHOSEN ONE
IF I TOOK ONE FOR THE TEAM

Yeah IT?S THE ONLY WAY TO BE
NEVER THINK IT ISNT FAIR
THAT?S A GREEN EYED PANIC CLIMB
TO THE EDGE OF NOWHERE

GIVE IT TO THE CHICKEN
AND SEE IF IT TICKS
Yeah GIVE IT TO THE KITTEN
AND SEE IF IT SICKS
THEN GIVE IT TO THE WONDERFUL
WONDERFUL ME
AND I WILL TELL ON MY RETURN
THE WAY IT IS
WITH ALL THE HAPPY BOYS AND GIRLS
Yeah THE WHOLE H-H-HAPPY WORLD
AND THE LOVE THEY FEEL FOR ME
Yeah the love they feel for me?

?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD
YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD
YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID

THEY TOLD ME I COULD RUN THE WORLD
IF I KEPT IT QUIET
THEY SAID I COULD BE THE MAN
IF I TOOK IT OUT OF SIGHT

IN A MONKEY SUIT AGAIN
HAVING FUN WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS
HOW A CASUAL HOUR CAN PULL
ALL THIS WORLD TO PIECES

GIVE IT TO THE BUNNY
AND SEE IF SHE KICKS
Yeah GIVE IT TO THE PUPPY
AND SEE IF HE STICKS
THEN GIVE IT TO THE WONDERFUL
WONDERFUL ME
I?LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN I GET BACK
JUST HOW IT IS
WITH ALL THE OTHER BOYS AND GIRLS
Yeah THE WHOLE F? F?
OTHER WORLD

AND THE WAY IT STIRS INSIDE
AND THE WHY IT NEVER BURNS AT NIGHT
AND THE WAY THEY MAKE THE CLIMB
AND THE WHY THEY NEVER PRAY FOR TIME
AND THE WAY I SHOW SURPRISE
AND THE WHY I NEVER CLOSE MY EYES
Yeah? JUST HOW IT IS

?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD? I SAID
?SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD YOU ANGELS
I?LL SLEEP WHEN I?M DEAD

BUT UNTIL THEN? ?

Well? I should at least feel tired I think
Before I lay me down to dream?

DOWN UNDER
(Smith/Gallup/Cooper/Thompson)

AROUND THE SEA GREEN POOL WE SPIN
THE MERMAID SINGING SONGS
TO PULL US IN
TO SWIM WITH HIM SHE SLIDES UP SLOW
TO FALL DOWN UNDER

BRIGHT BURNING EYES THE ONLY CLUE
TO WHO PLAYS WHAT PLAYS WHEN PLAYS
YOU JUST BLEW MY CUE
TO DROWN HIS TEARS
FOR ALL IN WONDER

UNLUCKY START I SMILE
BUT TWICE IS HELPLESS
FIZZ DOWN NICE AS BLACK WITH ICE
DISGUISE THE STROKE
ENTICE THEM OUT
TO CALL THEIR NUMBER

LEAN IN AND BREATHE IN
AS LOW AS YOU CHOOSE
REMEMBER NOT ALL GAMES ARE WON
BY THE LAST ONE TO LOSE?

HER TAIL I TELL HIS HEAD WE BREAK
THE TRICK IS HOW TO FAKE THE FIRST MISTAKE
TO MAKE THEM TAKE
THE EASY CHOICE
TOO CLOSE TO CARE HOW

BUT WET SPOT SOMETIME CHANGES STRIPE
AND DAY TO NIGHT
IF EVERY WRONG IS RIGHT
I DRY YOUR EYE
YOU BITE MY LIP
WE?RE ALMOST THERE NOW

LEAN IN AND BREATHE IN
AS LOW AS YOU CHOOSE
REMEMBER NOT ALL GAMES ARE WON?
