Wake Up (Next to You)

This song is by Graham Parker & The Shot and appears on the album Steady Nerves (1985) and on the album Live From New York, NY (1996).

I can't have no objection to the world outside
I don't have no complaints against life's one way ride
I know I'm sleeping with an angel and this devil's in luck

Ooh wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

I've been dreamin' for too long
I guess something's always wrong unless I
Wake up, next to you, I wanna
Wake up, next to you you
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, yeah

The Summer's left a spell on us, magic and gold
The tarmac's cracked and shimmering, up on the road
I know I'm walking with an angel down a hot avenue
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
I've been dreamin' for too long
I guess something's always wrong unless I

Wake up, next to you, I'm gonna wake up
Wake up, next to you ooh (Sax solo)

spoken:
You know what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna pick up the telephone
Right now and I'm gonna call information and I'm gonna say to 'em
"Where is she right now? 'Cause I want you and I need you"
And I wanna hear her say: "Hey baby, Wake up!"

Wake up, next to you, I'm gonna wake up
Wake up, next to you you
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, yeah
