I'm Only Sleeping Lyrics - The Beatles

Review The Song (6)



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 up stream (float up stream)

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...

When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
Leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping

John was an alien from the Planet Ventriloquism. When he yawns in the chorus, everyone on earth doth so in unison. Then backwards gobble-dee-gook hypnotiss all into becoming walking handkerchiefs. umm-tar--deghshcrummeEMm

Another "Paul Is Dead" Clue | Reviewer: Pete Worst | 3/31/12

Well, I have playing this song backwards and it sounds pretty weird but great. In the lyrics "everybody seems to think im lazy" if played backward it sounds like "he is missing" (and he means paul).Okay, probably im wrong but i listen it !

Love it! | Reviewer: Corynn | 1/3/12

All these lyrics really suit me, I have LOTS of trouble SLEEPING. I'd stare at the ceiling and watch the world go by my window. And because I can only get myself asleep around 3:00 AM I normally end up waking up at around 9:00 - 12:00 PM!!! I have always wanted to sleep and people to leave me where I am and they all call me lazy! So I always listen to this song, has to be my favorite!

Like it Love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/09

This song sticks in my head through out the day if i play it, so much that I got on line to find the lyrics,which is how I found this web site. Now I can print it off and sing it aloud. I've always loved these group of geniuses.The Beatles have always been my favorite group.

One of the Beatles Best | Reviewer: Eric | 11/8/09

This gem is one of my favorite Beatles recordings. Wonderfully recorded acoustic guitar and drums and the backwards guitar just incredible as well as the bass.....as always and needless to say. Now this is classic psychedelia. Very strong melody that just grabs you and won't let go. I particularly enjoy the melody of the background vocals on the 'please don't spoil my day I'm miles away'.....chorus. John was definately at the top of his game for this LP. 'She Said She Said' 'Dr Robert'. Doesn't get any better. I wish there more John tracks on this LP. In my opinion the mono Revolver is the way to go. Go listen to the Beatles and enjoy.

My Favorite Song | Reviewer: Mike | 9/24/09


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

--- My sentiments exactly. everyone leave me alone, i'll figure it all out..... and maybe i think i already have.....
