He's in a different time zone
so I don't sleep at night
I know I should be snoozin'
but the chemistry's just right
 
We get all lovey dovey
though its only on the phone
but then I won't be sleepin'
'cause I hate to be alone
 
Sleep is real important
least that's what I've always read
but lovin's what I'm cravin'
so I'll sleep after I'm dead
 
He tells me I'm his sugar
and he's my sunny guy
but we live in different countries
and something's gone awry
 
My eyes are gettin' drooopy
and bags beneath them be
I hope this dude is worth it
'cause I can barely see
 
The wrinkles are a poppin'
my face is full of lines
if lookin' old was criminal
I'd be broke from all the fines
 
I'm movin' like a zombie
just like the walkin' dead
my butt's been really draggin'
and my eyes are blood-shot red
 
I'm up in the wee hours
drinkin' coffee by the pot
I'm hopin' that he loves me now
'cause I don't look so hot
 
So if we chance a meetin'
I pray the lights are dim
I'm thinkin' he'll be seein'
Igor lookin' back at him
 
Good thing I got a snapshot
before the nappin' ceased
cause I'm lookin' really ragged
his beauty's become the beast!
