    I only smoke weed when I need to,
    And I need to get some rest,
    I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress,
    Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty,
    And on the count of three I pull back the duvet,
    Make my way to the refrigerator,
    One dry potato inside, no lie
    Not even bread, jam,
    When the light above my head went bam!
    I can't sleep, something's all over me,
    Greasy, insomnia please release me,
    And let me dream about making mad love on the heath,
    Tearing off tights with my teeth.
    But there's no relief,
    I'm wide awake in my kitchen,
    It's dark and I'm lonely,
    Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
    Creaky noises make my skin creep,
    I need to get some sleep,
    I can't get no sleep....

    Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
    Is when I search for the light
    Pick up my pen and start to write
    I struggle, fight dark forces
    In the clear moon light
    Without fear... insomnia
    I can't get no sleep

    I used to worry, thought I was goin' mad in a hurry
    Gettin' stress, makin' excess mess in darkness
    No electricity, something's all over me, greasy
    Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
    Makin' mad love to my girl on the heath
    Tearin' off tights with my teeth
    But there's no release, no peace
    I toss and turn without cease
    Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast
    At least a couple of weeks
    Since I last slept, kept takin' sleepers
    But now I keep myself pepped
    Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
    I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
    So when it's black this insomniac take an original tack
    Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack
    I gets no sleep
    I can't get no sleep

    I can't get no sleep
    I can't get no sleep
    I need to sleep, although I get no sleep
    I need to sleep, although I get no sleep

    Nah, he takes the hash so he CAN sleep... but it doesn't work.

    The thread title reminds me of a member on this site.

    Don't know where he's gone now though, really happy chap and quite keen on football.
