I'm Asleep

When you buzzed after "snore"
Couldn't open my two eyes
You're just like a bother
Your tone makes me cry
I snore like a feather's
In the back of my throat
I wish I was annoying
You're so fucking annoying

Cause I'm asleep
I'm just, uh, dead, oh
What the hell are you doing here?
You don't belong here

I don't care if I dream
But my mind wants control
I can feel myself nodding
I want a perfect sleep-in
I want you to notice when I'm asleep, sound
You're so fucking annoying
I wish I was annoying

Cause I'm asleep
I'm just, uh, dead, oh
Why the hell are you buzzing here?
You don't buzz long here

Not running out the door
Not running out
Late - run, run, run

Whatever makes me dozy
Whatever it is
Is so fucking annoying
I wish I was annoying

Cause I'm asleep
I'm still in bed, oh
What the hell's going on here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here

 With apologies to Radiohead and Quirkyloon

HA! I caught on right away Dufus! I was like, wait! This is MY song. And nicely done, and I guess I accept the 'pology.

Or is too late to 'pologize?

I knew you'd get this Quirks. "Creep" is your favourite song. I hope I didn't take too many liberties with it. "I'm asleep" just seemed like such a natural. Great song...the original anyway.

Okay, now I get it. Some of the lyrics sounded familiar-like, but I was thinking of a totally different song.

A little ambiguous for you this morning? We should remind people what song I'm parodying

I did look it up (thanks for the link anyway), but I really did have another song in mind which now totally escapes me. Fun lyrics, though.

Quirky seemed to like it. I can see I'm going after a limited audience today.

Hey! I got that one right away!! I love that song. Yours, I mean, not the original. Mainly because Jepeto snores and I'm really fucking tired. :-)

Well you should move his cage to another room.
cardiogirl said…
Nice job, dufus! This song is definitely for my husband. GRRR!
Angelika said…
I wish I could hear the song because I don't think I've ever heard Radiohead. You should sing it! ☺

Me? I wouldn't do the original justice. There's a link to the original further down in the comments here.

Is your husband so very special?

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
