Sleepytown (for Academics Only)

Here’s the link to the video of the original song so you can catch the beat:

Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me
Town with a cure for my grad school induced loss of sleep

Well, I talk about it, think about it
Cry about it, sing about it
Talk about, talk about
Talk about movin’

Gotta move on,
Get the hell on gone
Gotta get gone, on

A-won’t you take me to Sleepytown?
I need to get to Sleepytown?
Do they have jobs in Sleepytown?
Got loans to pay off from Sleepytown?

I’m on my way to Sleepytown?
Promise of tenure, in Sleepytown?
Advisor said yes to Sleepytown?
You won’t let me down will ya Sleepytown?

Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me
Town with the promise of scholarly prosperity…

Well, I talk about it, think about it
Cry about it, sing about it
Talk about, talk about
Talk about movin’

Gotta move on,
Get the hell on gone
Gotta get gone, on

Making my way to Sleepytown?
Gon’ give out “A’s” in Sleepytown?
Students will LOVE me in Sleepytown?
I’m buying rounds in Sleepytown?

I made my way to Sleepytown?
Met the unexpected in Sleepytown?
Nothing to do in Sleepytown?
Can’t find no boo in this Sleepytown?

I’ve got to escape this Sleepytown?
Should not have come to this Sleepytown?
I bought a house in this Sleepytown?
Now I’m feeling trapped in this Sleepytown?

Sleepytown?
I need to escape this Sleepytown?
Planning a jail break from Sleepytown?
Won’t you help me out of this Sleepytown?

Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?

I wanna get out of Sleeptown
I gotta get out of Sleepytown
I’m starting to drown in Sleepytown
Now pass me that Crown case I can’t get out…

The Original Lyrics

Lyrics
Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me
Town to keep me movin’, keep me groovin’ with some energy

Well, I talk about it, talk about it
Talk about it, talk about it
Talk about, talk about
Talk about movin’

Gotta move on
Gotta move on
Gotta move on

A-won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?

Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?

Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me
Town to keep me movin’, keep me groovin’ with some energy

Well, I talk about it, talk about it
Talk about it, talk about it
Talk about, talk about
Talk about movin’

Gotta move on
Gotta move on
Gotta move on

A-won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?

Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me to Funkytown?

Won’t you take me down to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me down to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me down to Funkytown?
Won’t you take me down to Funkytown?

Funkytown?
(Won’t you take me to) Funkytown?
(Won’t you take me to) Funkytown?
(Won’t you take me to) Funkytown?

Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?
Take me, won’t you take me?

I wanna go to Funkytown
I wanna go to Funkytown
I wanna go to Funkytown
I wanna go to Funkytown
