Interesting son. Anybody have exact lyrics?

Don’t Call Me Early in the Morning
The Irish Rovers

Don't call me early in the morning
Call me what you want to but leave me alone
Don't call me early in the morning
Just leave me till the cows are coming home

A man or a woman they need their relaxation
From rising always at the dawn
And the heart of the matter tomorrow is a Saturday
And I'll be lying on

Don't call me early in the morning
Call me what you want to but leave me alone
Don't call me early in the morning
Just leave me till the cows are coming home

Sad the lad that can't rest contented
He has it all but must have more
He fills himself with pills to retire with a million
But falls asleep at sixty-four

Don't call me early in the morning
Call me what you want to but leave me alone
Don't call me early in the morning
Just leave me till the cows are coming home

Fair is fair and I've done my share
My nerves are getting on my nerves
If you don't have a pillow of the white swan's feather
I'll do with a corner for my head


Don't call me early in the morning
Call me what you want to but leave me alone
Don't call me early in the morning
Just leave me till the cows are coming home

Just a gentle warning for tomorrow morning
No big noises near my room
Cars with no exhaust, Chickens with the hooping cough
And milkmen that whistle out of tune!

Don't call me early in the morning
Call me what you want to but leave me alone
Don't call me early in the morning
Just leave me till the cows are coming home

I've got a rather good version of this on CD by a band called The Barra McNeils.

It seems to have first appeared on the Sands Family's 1976 LP "After the Morning" where the lyrics are credited to them.
Another version is on the Barra MacNeil's 2000 CD "RACKET IN THE ATTIC" where it too, is credit to the Sands Family,

Definitely one of Tommy's songs! You can hear it on YouTube here:
Don't call me early in the Morning
The lyrics seem correct apart from one medical mishap in the last verse: it should be WHOOPING cough with a W, not hooping! (Aka Pertussis!)
Love all the Sands family songs!

The Barra MacNeils (with an A) are/were fab: from Cape Breton but ancestry going back to Barra in the Outer Hebrides, where nearly everyone is called McNeil or McNeill or Macneil or MacNeill. Possibly one of their most famous songs is "Working Man", written by the late Rita MacNeil. The band came from the Sydney Mines area in Cape Breton, hence the song.

It is also on The Sands Family 'Collection' Spring Records SCD1030. The insert has this note:

"Words and music Tommy Sands copyright Elm Grove Music. Recorded in 1985 at Spring Studios, Rostrevor. Sitting beside a high pressure businessman, Tommy wrote this song when flying home from Canada about the idea of borrowing some retirement time in advance and enjoying life while we're still alive".

As noted above, there was an earlier recording on the "After the Morning" LP.
