Have you ever gone to sleep at night
with a song stuck in your head?
You dream your dreams, you toss and turn,
soft and cradled in your bed –
while that song drones on,
and the morning finds you dead.
Have you ever met the morning
with a song stuck in your head?

Have you ever heard a phrase and
started humming an old tune?
‘Cause the tune reminded you
of some old lyrics that you knew?
And you hum that song right up until
you find it’s time for bed.
Have you ever gone to sleep
with an old song stuck in your head?

Have you ever thought of something
you believe could make a song?
Those lyrics come to you
as if they’d been there all along,
and you write it all down
and turn out the lights to sleep.
Have you ever tried to sleep
with some dumb song stuck in your head?
