lyrics

Well I woke up on the floor
I was somewhere in New Jersey
I got up quick
Took the bus back to New York

I couldn't remember much
But I felt so glad I could
Remember how to get out of there
And remember how I put the wood to her
Remember how I put the wood

A car, a girl, a party
I had a drink or three or four
An open invitation
And then a whole lot more

Then someone said, Hey Johnny sing Light My Fire
And I sounded 'bout as good as a dog
So I broke a couple guitar strings
Then a girl in a Nazi uniform
Accidentally spilled her drink on me
Yeah she accidentally threw it right in my face I said

Hey! Never Wake Up
I'm always playin' dead
Over and over now
Things better happen quick
Before another morning makes me sick

I said, Never never never wake up, I knew it
Never never never wake up, she said now
Never never never wake up, let's do it
We're in a dream but we're leaving now
We've in a dream but we're leaving now

Well talk about Sunday morning
I felt about as good as dead
Ended up on Forty-Second Street
And I felt like nothing left
Nothing at all I don't care
Whatever happened there
A car, a girl, a party
Then I woke up on the floor
Sunlight streaming in
I took the bus back to New York, I said,

Hey! Never Wake Up
I'm always playin' dead
Over and over now
Things better happen quick
Before another morning makes me sick

I said, Never never never wake up, I knew it
Never never never wake up, she said now
Never never never wake up, let's do it
We're in a dream but we're leaving now
We've in a dream but we're leaving now
We're in a dream but we're leaving now
We've in a dream but we're leaving now
