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?

HA!

*snort*

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 http://youtu.be/XFkzRNyygfk

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.

Nice job, dufus! This song is definitely for my husband. GRRR!

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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
