about

An original on the ukulele, this song tells the story of someone who is burning the candle at both ends....

lyrics

Well I woke up early, after staying up late
A choice made lightly that was tempting
And my head...
Was pounding like a bass drum
But I'll use this rhythm
To get my day's work done

I tapped my foot while I was lying in bed
Getting up, a task I dread
and my head...
Still pounding like a bass drum
But I'll use this rhythm
To get my day's work done

Gotta get up
Gotta get up
Gotta get up
I know it deep deep down (Repeat)

I drink my coffee while I'm in the shower
If this don't wake me up
I'll still have an hour
and my head...
Pounding like a bass drum
To keep this job
I'll have to get my day's work done

So, I greet my boss with a jaded smile
Not impressed, but then neither am I
My head?
Still pounding like a bass drum
But I'll use this rhythm
To get my day's work done

Oh, oh I should have stayed in bed
Oh, oh I should have stayed in bed
Gotta do the work.

So, I'm under pressure
It's sink or swim
But I've got my armbands
In the form of rhythm
Cos my head
Is working like a bass drum
And I'm laughing now
Cos, I got my day's work done
I'm laughing now
But this was a close one.
