about

This song, which on the surface is about not sleeping in, was very helpful for me during a time when I was feeling a low level of motivation in, well, life in general.

lyrics

Sleepy Head
(Verse Chords D G E7)

Open a window 

Air out your room

Breath in the new day

Let out the gloom 


There's somethin’ about

The early morning breeze

That feels so easy

When it blows through the trees



E7 G
You can miss so much if you stay in bed 

Don't be a sleepy head


People are talking
And taking their time
Dogs are out walkin’
And birds are out flyin’

Coffee and Bacon
And trucks in the street
Stop by the bake-er-y
And get somethin sweet

You can miss so much if you stay in bed
Don’t be a sleepy head

Bridge:
A G D(F#) G
You got the whole day ahead of you
There’s so much that you can do :||

Bridge chords half as fast:

You got early mornin’ sunshine shine
On the west side of the street
In the summer time
You gotta get up to beat the heat
You got daylight
So put your sunglasses on
The sun rose up to greet you
So get up and greet the dawn

You can miss so much if you stay in bed
Don’t be a sleepy head
