lyrics

Sleep With One Eye Open

Well I just found out today, the little game you play, while I’ve been sleeping all my time away.
You been stepping out, they say, between midnight and day, so I’m going to Sleep with One Eye Open from now on.

Chorus:
From now on—all night long. You won’t have a chance to treat your daddy wrong. You been steppin’ out, they say, between midnight and day, so I’m going to sleep with one eye open from now on.

Now there’s a place not far away—about a mile, I’d say, and I understand that’s where you spend your time.
Well baby I’ve got news for you: your little game is thru. From now on baby you’d better tow the line.

Chorus

Well you thought you were being smart--Breakin’ my big old heart.
