Rise to the Sun

from by SAM SMALL



Hey ho, rise to the sun
Gotta get to work
And a job well done
Brush your teeth and clean your head
Up get out of your stinking bed

Oh leave me alone I cannot rise
Into the gloom of your great sunrise
Just go away and let me be
Why you have to bother me
I just can’t see

How dare you sleep
How dare you lay
Whatcha gonna do when you get no pay?
How on earth can your life begin
When laziness is your great sin?

Oh damn you all I will not move
I can’t understand what you’ve got to prove
Get off my brain get off my back
Get out of my room and don’t come back

Happy days

With love in the shade of a tree
Closer now
Oh my love
I don’t want you to go
I don’t want you to stay

We’ll sit down by the road in the sun
Pass the oranges
We’re lost in time
And we’ll do what we want
And we’ll do what we please

Pretty soon I’ve gotta me in motion
But I don’t know the things that I need to know
And while I’m lying here I think that I’m falling
Into a dream that I can see on the wall

(Please just let me have your number)

I said, “Hey man! Won’t you listen to me? Carefully. I said…”

Hey ho, rise to the sun
Gotta get to work
And a job well done
Brush my teeth and clean my head
Gotta get out of my beautiful bed

At last, my son, you see the light
It doesn’t take much
And you know it’s right
Be like us and stand up straight
Just get to work
And don’t be late
