Sleepy Joe
Sleepy Joe

Rise and shine, Sleepy Joe
Now's the time, don't you know
To get into a new kind of dream
You've been living alone
With no Bell telephone
And you don't have a shirt that is clean

You can rest your head
On the corner of your bed
You can watch the world go by
But you're never gonna see
What the other people see
If you're always gonna be a Sleepy Joe

Rise and shine, Sleepy Joe
There are places to go
There are windows to clean on the way
You've got nothing to lose
But the shine on your shoes
Do the best things you can every day

You can get upset
At the way the people get
You can turn your back on the crowd
But you never gonna see
What is absolutely real
If you're always gonna be a Sleepy Joe

La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)

Rise and shine, Sleepy Joe
Now's the time, don't you know
To get into a new kind of dream
You've been living alone
With no Bell telephone
And you don't have a shirt that is clean

La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)

Rise and shine, Sleepy Joe
There are places to go
There are windows to clean on the way
You've got nothing to lose
But the shine on your shoes
Do the best things you can every day

La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
La lala, la lala, la lala (Sleepy Joe)
