  • Uh, sleep all day, out all night,
    I know where you're going.
    I don't that's a-acting right,
    You don't think it's showing.
    A-jumpin' up, fallin' down,
    Don't misunderstand me.
    You don't think that I know your plan,
    What you try'n to hand me?

    Out all night, sleep all day,
    I know what you're doing.
    If you're gonna a-act that way,
    Think there's trouble brewing. Writer/s: DALE PETERS, JAMES K. FOX, JOSEPH FIDLER WALSH
