I Wanna Be Sedated

I Wanna Be Sedated

Released 2009


While working on "Crazy Train", I had a moment of inspiration and a true Instant Classic Opus was born. This was conceived, recorded, produced, and distributed over the course of a weekend. If you wanna say it sounds like it, well, now, that's just mean. You just made me cry. I hope you're pleased with yourself, Little Mr./Ms. Music Critic...

Mooseboy's Lyrics
Original Lyrics
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do nowhere to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
Just get me to the airport put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my brain
Oh no, no, no, no, no

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do nowhere to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
Just put me in a wheelchair, get me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain
Oh no, no, no, no, no

(And I love Perry Como, he's the greatest, he really is. Mr. Relaxation. Oy! Some people call him Mr. Relaxation, I thought tonight's show was a little up-tempo. That was the most relaxed I've ever seen Perry. He was really relaxed...he's tops in my book.)

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do nowhere to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
Just put me in a wheelchair get me to the show
Hurry hurry hurry before I go loco
I can't control my fingers I can't control my toes
Oh no, no, no, no, no

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do nowhere to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
Just put me in a wheelchair, get me to the show
Hurry hurry hurry before I go loco
I can't control my fingers I can't control my toes
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba
I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba
I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba
I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba
I wanna be sedated
Twenty, twenty, twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do, no where to go, oh, I wanna be sedated

Just get me to the airport put me on a plane
Hurry, hurry, hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my brain
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do, no where to go, oh, I wanna be sedated

Just put me in a wheelchair get me on a plane
Hurry, hurry, hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my brain
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do, no where to go, oh, I wanna be sedated
Just put me in a wheelchair, get me to the show
Hurry, hurry, hurry before I go loco
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my toes
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Twenty, twenty, twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do, no where to go, oh I wanna be sedated

Just put me in a wheelchair, get me to the show
Hurry, hurry, hurry before I go loco
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my toes
Oh no, oh, oh, oh, oh

Bamp bamp, ba bamp, ba bamp bamp, ba bamp, I wanna be sedated
