I count the pills and wonder
if all of them made it in the bag.
Are there enough to make you gag?

She’s sick like morphine...
A Benadryl queen, but knock-offs
won’t keep her from sleeping.

If you’ve got insomnia
or suffer from bad dreams
there’s gotta be something
you’re willing to part with
something that I need
‘cause I know a little girl
who’s got to get some sleep
so gather your pills,
and give it up for the Benadryl Queen

I’m training, I’m draining
you take the life right out of me
remember when I was happy?

They said you’re trending,
and I’m willing to bet the doctors are right
you ought to get some sleep tonight

You got something that I want
You got something that I need
You got something that I want,
so give it up for the Benadryl Queen
