Tired and sleepy
Eddie & Hank Cochran / Jerry Capehart - 1956

Well, I’m a uptown cat. Yeah, even a crazy pet.
Well, I’m a ladies man. Yeah, a smooth talkin’ dad.

I gotta go to bed ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
I can’t love you, baby, ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
Tired and sleepy. Ooh, baby, so tired.

I left the house last night. Yeah, with style and grace.
I met a wild-wild woman. Yeah, I tried to keep the pace.

I gotta go to bed ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
I can’t love you, baby, ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
Tired and sleepy. Ooh, baby, so tired.

I got a fifty dollar headache. Yeah, hundred dollar shoes.
A big long pink Cadillac and a bad-bad case of blues.

I gotta go to bed ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
I can’t love you, baby, ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
Tired and sleepy. Ooh, baby, so tired.

Well, I’m a uptown cat. Yeah, even a crazy pet.
Well, I’m a ladies man. Yeah, a smooth talkin’ dad.

I gotta go to bed ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
I can’t love you, baby, ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
Tired and sleepy. Ooh, baby, so tired.

Ooh, I’m a-waiting for you daddy.
Yeah, that’s what my baby said.
But, honey, I got a passion for my kingsize bed.

I gotta go to bed ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
I can’t love you, baby, ’cause I’m tired and sleepy.
Tired and sleepy. Ooh, baby, so tired.
