Tuning: Half-step down


[Verse 1]
Em                         Am    
When I wake up early in the morning
G      C     G        B7
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
Em                         Am  
When I'm in the middle of a dream
G      C        G      C       
I stay in bed, and float upstream


[Chorus]
G                  
Please don't wake me
Am              
No don't shake me
Bm              Am
Leave me where I am
         Cmaj7
I'm only sleeping

[Verse 2]
Em                          Am 
Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
G      C       G            B7
I don't mind, I think they're crazy
Em                          Am  
Running everywhere at such a speed
G       C     G         C   
'til they find, there's no need


[Chorus]
G                    Am
Please don't spoil my day
           Bm
I'm miles away
          Am
And after all
         Cmaj7
I'm only sleeping

[Bridge]       Note: You can play Fmaj7 instead of Dm
Dm                   E7               Am   
Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
N.C.
Taking my time
Em                             Am   
Lying there and staring at the ceiling
G     C     G    B7
Waiting for a sleepy feeling

Em  Am  G  C  G  C   


[Chorus]
G                    Am
Please don't spoil my day

Great job! There are 3 things I want to comment on. According to my ear, I don't think the Abm chord after each verse is in the song. secondly, during the "I'm only sleeping lyric" I think it should be a B chord, not "F#". and Thirdly, I don't think you would call it F#, it should be Gb considering its in the key of Eb Minor.
