i’m only sleeping lyrics – beatles

when i wake up early in the morning
lift my head, i’m still yawning
when i’m in the middle of a dream
stay in bed, float upstream (float upstream)

please don’t wake me
no, don’t shake me
leave me where i am
i’m only sleeping

everybody seems to think i’m lazy
i don’t mind, i think they’re crazy
running everywhere at such a speed
till they find there’s no need (there’s no need)

please don’t spoil my day
i’m miles away
and after all
i’m only sleeping

keeping an eye on the world going by my window
taking my time
lying there and staring at the ceiling
waiting for a sleepy feeling

please don’t spoil my day
i’m miles away
and after all
i’m only sleeping

keeping an eye on the world going by my window
taking my time

when i wake up early in the morning
lift my head, i’m still yawning
when i’m in the middle of a dream
stay in bed, float upstream (float upstream)

please don’t wake me
no, don’t shake me
leave me where i am
i’m only sleeping
