I Woke Myself Up Laughing
I woke myself up laughing
I couldn't hold it in.
It started with a chuckle..
and it ended with a grin.
Have you ever woke up laughing?
I mean right out loud and clear?
I love when my day starts like this
but it's my family's greatest fear.
They know if I wake up laughing
they're bound to hear the joke.
No matter how un-funny...
I'll laugh until I choke!
Yesterday I woke up laughing
about a funny dream.
I'd tell you all about it
but to you it may not seem....
Ok, I'll tell the story...
but just prepare yourself to roar.
I dreamt I took the last dry towel...
and there weren't anymore!
This is it! That's the dream!
I still can't tell it through.
I'm laughing myself out of my chair
as I write the words to you!
