Seven days of Saturday
Is all that I need
Got no use for Sunday
'Cause I don't rest in peace
I don't need no Mondays
Or the rest of the week
I spend a lot of time in bed
But baby I don't like to sleep no

I won't lie to you
I'm never gonna cry to you
I'll probably drive you wild 8 days a week

Until I'm six feet under
Baby I don't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

{Alright listen up}

So you're looking for some action
I got everything you need
Well keep your motor running
Baby I was built for speed
This ain't no slumber party
Got no time for catching Z's
If they say that that ain't healthy
Well then livings a disease

We're never going to die baby
Come on let me drive you crazy
We'll make every night another new year's eve

Till I'm six feet under
Baby I won't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Seven days of Saturday
Is all that I need
Got no use for Sunday
'Cause I don't rest in peace
I was born to live
You know I wasn't born to die
But if they party down in heaven
I'll be sure to be on time

Until I'm six feet under
Baby I don't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I feel like I'm exploding
Going out of my head
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till I'm six feet under
And they lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
Gonna live while I'm alive
Sleep when I'm dead

I'll sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
...
