royal pain lyrics – eels

i got some sleep and i needed it
not a lot, just a little bit
someone’s always tryin’ to keep me from it

it’s a cryin’ shame
it’s a royal pain in the neck
i’m just tryin’ to get by
with my pride a little bit intact

ask me any question and i’ll level with you
i didn’t ask but anything but bein’ with you
that’s the only thing i was born to do

and they’re all insane
such a royal pain in the neck
i’m just tryin’ to get by
with my pride a little bit intact

another day is put to the test
lord knows i’m doin’ my best
never a brother, always a guest

it’s a cryin’ shame
it’s a royal pain in the neck
i’m just tryin’ to get by
with my pride a little bit intact

and they’re all insane
such a royal pain in the neck
i’m just tryin’ to get by
with my pride just a little bit intact
