Sleeping in the Washing Machine

This song was created for Game of Bands round 214 : "Lullabies"

Lyrics:

Sleeping in the Washing Machine
-------
VERSE

Restlessness it brings about
So many shades of wrong
The car alarm is singing out
I hate that frickin song

No place anywhere for solace
That one would hope to find
No environment for slumber flawless
To quiet this raging mind

CHORUS
So here I rest and get so clean
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
I lay my head on a pair of jeans
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Socks and towels, snug between
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)


VERSE
Who knew that sleep was such a labor
No slumber is allowed
Next door I am hearing neighbors
Partying and loud

Frustration at the lack of power
A fog of dark moonlight
Agitation midnight hour
Dogs bark into the night

CHORUS
But now I doze with peaceful dreams
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
On soft clothes in this machine
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Set the dryer for an hour fifteen
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Tumbling choir, so serene
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)

And here I rest and get so clean
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
I lay my head on a pair of jeans
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Socks and towels, snug between
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
(Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
[Exit]
