“Girls Just Wanna Have Naps” (with apologies to Cyndi Lauper)

Mister Tea and I start rewriting songs for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes it is Chronic Life connected (Here Comes the Pain Again is a favorite inside my head), sometimes it is for a tea (Pie of the Tiger), sometimes it is just because we are a bit odd.

Recently we’ve decided to actually finish them, and post them, in the hopes that other people find amusement in them as well.

This one was sparked by a comment on Twitter, and finished out properly by request.

I’m still up in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna sleep through the night
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they wanna have naps
Oh girls just want to have naps

The phone rings in the middle of the night
I’m already up wondering what’s wrong with my life
Oh dreamtime dear you know you’re still number one

‘Cause girls they wanna have naps
Oh girls just want to have naps

That’s all they really want
Some sleep
When the working day is done
Oh girls, they wanna have naps
Oh girls just wanna have naps (girls and boys wanna have naps, girls wanna have)

Some naps take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to rest in the sun
Oh girls they wanna have naps
Oh girls just wanna have

That’s all they really want
Some rest
When the working day is done
Oh girls, they wanna have naps
Oh girls just wanna have naps (girls and boys wanna have naps, girls wanna have)
They just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girl
Girls they wanna have naps
They just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, girls
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girls
Girls just want to have naps

When the working
When the working day is done
Oh when the working day is done oh girl
Girls, they wanna have naps

They just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girls
Girls just want to have naps

When the working
When the working day is done
Oh when the working day is done oh girl
Girls, they wanna have naps
