Tune all strings down 1/2 step, ie E becomes Eb
I know, retuning your strings is annoying,
but if you like this song, you have no choice!



 Em                           Am     
When I wake up early in the morning, 
 G       C    G         B7
lift my head I'm still yawning.
 Em                          Am   
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
  G       C    G       C
stay in bed float upstream.
  G                  Am                
Please don't wake me no don't shake me 
 Bm              Am
leave me where I am
           Asus2
I'm only sleeping


 Em                           Am  
Everybody seems to think I'm lazy, 
 G        C      G             B7
I don't mind I think they're crazy
 Em                           Am   
Running everywhere at such a speed 
  G        C    G          C
'til they find there's no need
  G                   Am             Bm             Am
Please don't spoil my day I'm miles away and after all
          Asus2      Em
I'm only sleeping


 Fmaj7                 E                  Am  Am7/G
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window,
 Fmaj7
Taking my time


 Em                             Am      
Lying there and staring at the ceiling, 
  G      C      G       B7
waiting for a sleepy feeling
