Don’t hurry me
I’m not layin’ in bed
I’m out on the street
Just like I said
Head in the left lane and feet in the right
I’m comfortable here
All day and all night

Don’t hurry me
I heard what you said
“Move it or lose it”
And “it” is my head

But can I draw flies?

Please mister sir you don’t understand
I’m really tired and I’ve been takin’ a nap
Don’t hurry me

Oh! Oh! my head
You have driven over my head
If I could
If I could stand
I’d lay down again
