I'm only sleeping (song)

This is how my class VII3 sang a song called 'I'm only sleeping' in June 2006.

This song was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and recorded by The Beatles in 1966.

Here are the lyrics: 
 When I wake up early in the morning,
I lift my head, I'm still yawning.
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
I stay in bed, float upstream (Float upstream)
Please, don't wake me, 
No, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am. I'm only sleeping.

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy,
I don't mind, I think they're crazy.
Running everywhere at such a speed,
Till they find there's no need (There's no need).
Please, don't spoil my day, 
I'm miles away.
And after all I'm only sleeping.

Keeping an eye on the world 
Going by my window.
I'm taking my time.

Lying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling
When I'm in the middle of a dream,
I stay in bed, float upstream (Float upstream)
Please, don't wake me, 

No, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am. I'm only sleeping.


Some of the warmers or follow-up activities were:
- Listen to the song and find out what the singer likes doing, what people think about him and what he thinks about them.
- Find and underline the words you think are about sleeping and  resting.
- Find the words that rhyme.
- Compare yourself to the singer (Do you find it difficult too get up in the morning?).
