Sound Asleep
The Turtles Lyrics

Ba da da da da da da
Daytime dreamin', gettin' involved only halfway deeo
Nighttime schemin', seemin' to be like I'm sound asleep

Sound asleep, spendin' my time on a dream that I'm about to see come
Sound asleep, keepin' my mind on you
Children singing, something for all little yous & mes
Winter springing, summer or fall
Drifting away day by day, farther away (far away)
The better I feel
Ba da da da da da da
Ba da da da da da da, da da da da


(horns & scat singing, fading out)

That middle part is lifted from the Beatles, "Tomorrow never knows".


Howard Kaylan according to wikipedia would have been 21 years old here. With grey hair encroaching on his sideburns? 21? Just that he looks older and not that it matters. They wrote and sang some of the greatest pop songs ever.

Alex Plotkin

Those blue cubes are hilarious.
