Sleeping in the Flowers Lyrics

Artist: They Might Be Giants
Album: John Henry

I got a crush
Copy shop clerk
But she won't look up at me
Don't want to be known as the freak
Who just comes around to catch her eye

We could be sleeping in the flowers
We could sleep all afternoon
You'd proclaim that you're an island
I'd proclaim that I'm one too
Then we float into the harbor
With just piers and boats around
I declare that I am England
You declare that I have drowned

I got a ride
Home with a drunk guy
How ungrateful I must have seemed
He showed me how
To spin my head round and round

We could be sleeping in the flowers
We could sleep all afternoon
You'd proclaim that you're an island
I'd proclaim that I'm one too
Then we float into the harbor
With just piers and boats around
I declare that I am England
You declare that I have drowned

We could be sleeping in the flowers
We could sleep all afternoon
You'd proclaim that you're an island
I'd proclaim that I'm one too
Then we float into the harbor
With just piers and boats around
I declare that I am England
You declare that I have drowned

We'll be sleeping in the flowers
Tell my boss that I've been fired
We'll be sleeping in the flowers
Tell my boss that I've been fired
We'll be sleeping in the flowers
Tell my boss I'm fired
We'll be sleeping in the flowers
Tell my boss I'm fired




Notes

The Dial-a-Song lyrics are unclear. The following is the best guess at this time.

Dogs' masters stay off 'em
Bugs stay off 'em
Dogs' masters stay off 'em
Bugs stay off 'em

Now we're sleeping in the flowers
And we'll sleep all afternoon
You proclaim that you're an island
I proclaim that I'm one too

Dogs' masters stay off 'em
Bugs stay off 'em
Dogs' masters stay off 'em
Bugs stay off 'em

Now we're sleeping in the flowers
And we'll sleep all afternoon
You proclaim that you're an island
I proclaim that I'm one too

Then we float into the harbor
With our piers and boats around
I declare that I am England
You declare that I have drowned

Now we're sleeping in the flowers
And we'll sleep all afternoon
You proclaim that you're an island
I proclaim that I'm one too

Then we float into the harbor
With our piers and boats around
I declare that I am England
You declare that I have drowned
