Insomnia – A Parody To The Tune Of A Sound Of Silence
Hello everyone. As you’re probably aware I’m an insomniac. I’ve written about it several times before including tips about what to do when sleep doesn’t come.
This past week I’ve been having some trouble getting to sleep. But instead of lamenting over it I decided to put my time to good use. I’ve not written any parody songs in ages, so I decided to focus on that. Given the time of night I was writing, the subject of the song seemed obvious.
Now there are two versions of this song. Normally I would agree the original is the best, but I think the Disturbed version adds the passion and strength of feeling in the vocals that the original lyrics and my alternative ones demand.
So ladies and gentlemen I give you……..
Insomnia – To the tune of The Sound Of Silence
3 am is not my friend.
It’s come to torture me again.
I’m feeling tired, but I’m not sleeping.
Close my eyes, but its not happening.
The sleep fairy, has abandoned me today.
She’s gone away.
So I’m left with, insomnia
And now im sitting in the gloom.
Theres only me here in the room.
Damn its getting a bit boring.
Cus all the other weirdos are snoring.
When you feel like your the last person left awake.
For heavens sake.
Oh its a bitch. Insomnia.
And then the clock say half past three.
I start to feel, a bit hungry.
Getting up to make a hot drink.
Have a biscuit as well I think.
People tell me mid night snacking makes me fat.
Don’t care bout that.
Please go away. Insomnia
Fools, they say, sleepings easy.
Close your eyes and it will be.
Shut my eyes and I try my best.
All I really can do is rest.
All I hear, the silence of the night.
I’m waiting for the light. Insomnia
Keep of mobile phones they say.
Their blue light keeps sleep at bay.
But when the only one awake is me,
and I really need some company.
Then the ones who, their words and their presence will make me feel less alone.
Are there in my phone.
To help me through the night. Insomnia
I think this is one of my best parodies yet. I already have the tune and theme for my next parody lined up curtesy of Mr A, but if you have a favourite song you would like rewritten please let me know.
