Sleeping in The Flowers - They Might Be Giants

"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 proclaim that you're an island
I 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

(repeat chorus x2)

We could be sleeping in the flowers,
Tell my boss that I've been fired (x2)
We could be sleep in the flowers,
Tell my boss I'm fired (x2)"
