Sleepin’, he’s just sleepin’ mister He doesn’t rest very much He lives hard and he gives hard And I’ll just die for his touch Sleepin’, he’s sleepin’ Without a care to his name He’s peaceful He’s quiet He’s tired of runnin’ his game He’s been out there In the streets you know With all the pain and all the suffering Out there Where you fight like hell He never learned a fix don’t fix a thing Don’t touch him Johnny put too much in his vanes And now you’re trying to tell me he’s gone I don’t believe you I’m just gonna sit here And rock him in my arms Sleepin’, he’s sleepin’ He doesn’t rest very much You see he lives hard and gives hard
