Lazy Bones Lyrics

Lazy bones sleepin' in the sun how you think you gonna get your day work done
You'll never get your day work done sleepin' in the noonday sun
Lazy bones sleepin' in the shade how you gonna get your corn meal made
You'll never get your corn meal made sleepin' in the noonday shade

When taters need sprayin' I bet you keep prayin' the bugs fall off of the vine
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin' the fish won't grab at your line
Lazy bones loafin' through the day how you spec you gonna make a dime that way
You'll never make a dime that way sleepin' in the noonday shade

[ spoken part ]

I'd like to tell you folks a tale about a certain guy
He's never done a full days work and that friend ain't no lie
When he was just a kid you know still lyin' in his crib he wouldn't shake his rattle i ain't aimin' none to fib
But i bet you people won't beleive me if i tell you this
He never went a swimming or pretty girl he didn't kiss
You see the effort he put forth would be so week and frail
Even if the kid did try he'd most likely fail
His folks were both discusted with the lazy little lout and even though they beat him he never did get out
He grew fast in fact the fasted thing he ever done
And soon he reached the ripe old age fourty years and one
He got a wife to work for him and even told her how to mop the floor
Feed the hogs and milk the jersey cow
He taught her all the chores around, the chores he should have done
While he just sits arouind the home and she was on the run
come meal time though he'd be as prompt as six oclock and stuff himself
Yes he would eat far more than all the farming stock
But he's older now ageing fast still he don't have cry
Cause when his master calls for him he'll be to lazy to die

Lazy bones sleepin' through the day how you spec you gonna make a dime that way
You'll never make a dime that way sleepin' in the noonday shade
