When I wake up early in the morning,
D             G  D             F#7
Lift my head     I'm still yawn  -  ing,
Bm                          Em
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
D       G   D        G            Em
Stay in bed float up stream.______
D                    Em                  F#m              Em
Please don't wake me no, don't shake me, leave me where I am
         Dmaj7       Em   Bm
I'm only sleeping.

2. Everybody seems to think I'm lazy,
   I don't mind I think they're crazy,
   Running everywhere a such a speed,
   'Til they find there's no need.
   Please don't spoil my day, I'm miles away and after all
   I'm only sleeping.

Coda:
Bm Am7                   B7                Em
   Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,

Taking my time.

3. Lying there staring at the ceiling,
   Waiting for a sleepy feeling.
