I'm Not Sleepin' by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

When the town fool is a liar
and he's preaching to the choir
You've got a lot of explaining that you do
You see, no one likes a quitter
it makes us oh, so bitter
So drop your hat and sit for awhile

Ya see, every now and again
we struggle with our past
We try to stare it in the eye
and pray that it won't last
Most questions that get answered,
they never make much sense
But I decided that I care,
and I'll get right down to it
And I said

I've stopped sleepin',
I told myself I'd never
close my eyes again
I'm not sleepin',
I'm doin' now the best that I can

Well, I like it when you sit,
and get straight down to it
It suits you more than anyone will admit
'Cause there's something in the air
and no one seems to care
Nobody will stand up, not even on a dare.

It's funny how we fool them
with tears behind our smile
So tried and true,
we plow right through
and hope it's worth the while
Most questions that get answered,
they never make much sense
But I decided that I care,
and I'll get right down to it!
And I said

I've stopped sleepin',
I told myself I'd never
close my eyes again
I'm not sleepin',
I'm doin' now the best that I can!
