Lyrics:
Once Eric said
Come gather around
I'll tell a tale
That is sure to astound

Un-somnambulist
That's awake see
He don't sleep
Talking taking no break
Walking
But you don't believe
No you don't believe (x2)

As to his fame well
He has two claims
He is a Don
And as well a Captain

Un-somnambulist
He was awake see
For eighty-five weeks
With no sleep
It's crazy maybe
But you don't believe
No you don't believe (x2)

They called him freak
And he lost all his friends
Could only speak
To the boys in the band

Un-somnambulist
You stay awake and see
What happens every eighty-five weeks
With no napping
But you don't believe
No you don't believe (x2)

Please will you listen
To what then did occur?
The world to him
Was all covered in fur

Un-somnambulist
Let me explain
See the fur
Changed to wood grain
Everything can you believe it?
But you don't believe
No you don't believe (x5)
