SMMD Sleepyhead transcription help

Recommended Posts

Is anyone interested in helping me get the lyrics transcribed correctly for Sleepyhead by Surprise Me Mr. Davis?

I have the album version and it's hard to make out the words.  This youtube version conflicts a little bit but also helped, so I'll add that here.

I'm confident with most of the words transcribed, but I highlighted those that don't really make sense.

 

this morning i went straight to the mountain and there i arose some sleep
to the pounding of a thousand hearts dancing light on their feet
i walked on my hands, spun on my head, and puffed away my sins
i stepped barefoot from my bed right into the ducking jughead bins

rise and shine sleepyhead,
up and out ‘em outta bed the day’s a’new
and love’s been lookin’ for you
rub your eyes you got something to do,
you’re a miracle boy

how could i be so afraid through so also last night outside myself  (this is slightly different on the album)
i bet the sun shines so today, like there’s love and nothing else
i’ve been broke so many ways then whatever holds your spirits
but just maybe like the morning rays of the sun across the hills

rise and shine sleepyhead,
up and out ‘em outta bed the day’s a’new
and love’s been lookin’ for you
rub your eyes you got something to do,
you’re a miracle boy

(this section doesn't appear on the album)

you see i was stuck inside my head but then life pulled me right from bed
saying you’re just asleep you are not dead and like mama always said 

rise and shine sleepyhead,
up and out ‘em outta bed the day’s a’new
and love’s been lookin’ for you
rub your eyes you got something to do,
you’re a miracle boy
