(Yeah!)

Well, we assure you, the procedure is safe and routine
Dramamine sends haunting dreams (Dramamine sends haunting dreams)
With an incessant drip, signs pockets like a palsy
'Cause you have to work hard for.. (Yeah you work hard for what you've got)
Yeah you have to work hard for.. (Yeah you work hard for what you've got)
(Yeah you work and now your...)

(Local.. Ane..sthe..sia.. Teases)
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia

Sleep, Oh! Sleep, Oh! Sleep, Oh!
We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose
Sleep, Oh! Sleep, Oh! Sleep, Oh!
We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose

Something practiced is something perfect
Our selfishly slim member cuffed
The season's got us eating less and less (less and less..)
You walk the full length of Manhattan in no time flat

Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work and now your...)

We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose
Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh!
We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose

(Lo...cal... Ane... Sthesia... Teases..)
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia, teases,
Local anesthesia,
Teases me too!

Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh!
We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose
Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh! Sleep Oh!
We'll breathe the sweet air through your nose

Yeah you work hard for what you've got
(Breathe the sweet air through your lungs)
Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work hard for what you've got
Yeah you work and now you're...
