Jim Johnson had done a lot of sleepwalking
He'd done it through the years
Sometimes he didn't know what he'd be waking up to
Which brought on many fears.
Sometimes he'd wake up in his house
Others walking on the street
Most times wearing little
And with nothing on his feet.
Once asleep he knew he was capable
Of doing almost anything
But it was still surprising for him
To wake up in the boxing ring.
He'd appeared at the start of a big fight
One of the boxers thought he was his foe
He tried to tell him he was here by mistake
And he really had to go.
But the boxer was so focussed
He punched him and put him in a daze
He knocked Jim Johnson over
And knocked him out for days.
For those days he was sleeping
For those days he couldn't walk
But when he fully recovered
His life was in a bit of a shock.
He had become a local celebrity
His full sleepwalking story had been told
The press called him 'Sleepwalk Johnson'
And the film rights had been sold.
So 'Sleepwalk Johnson' became a star
His life was full of free lunches
All because of his sleepwalking nights
And the time he rolled with the punches.
