I Got Woken Up

( Colin Hay )

I don’t need anybody, I don’t carry a gun
I don’t need to feel sorry, for the things I have done
Everything’s about to start, I can feel it in my bones and my heart
And I’m not even in the race

I woke up, yes I did, I woke up I’ve been asleep to long
I woke up, I got woken up, I woke up

I don’t care for religion, yeah that is my sin
If I come knockin’, I know he’ll let me in
Now I don’t have my cap in my hand, gonna stop here and see where I stand
Got a smile back upon my face

I woke up, I got woken up, I woke up, I’m gonna strap myself in
I woke up, yes I did, I woke up
I woke up, I got woken up, I woke up, yeah

Now I like this body, and I’m safe in my skin,
And I do love this feeling, and the shape that I’m in
Every sun brings a brand new day, well so what, I don’t care to hear you say
Well I no longer lead the chase

I woke up, I got woken up, I woke up, I got woken up yeah
I woke up, it’s time to rise and shine, I woke up, this day is mine
I woke up, woken up, I woke up, woken up, it’s time to rise up
I woke up, woken up, I woke up, woken up, I woke up, woken up, woken up
