Lazy Bones

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the sun,
How ya gonna get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Sleepin' in the noon-day sun.

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the shade,
How ya gonna get your cornmeal made?
Never get your cornmeal made,
Sleepin' in the noon-day shade.

And when the potatoes need sprayin',
I betcha keep prayin' that the bugs fall off the vine.
And when you go fishin' I betcha keep wishin'
That the fish won't grab at your line.

Lazy Bones, loafin' through the day,
Ain't never gonna make a dime that way.
You'll never make a dime that way,
And you don't hear a word Isay.

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the sun,
How ya gonna get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Sleepin' in the noon-day sun.

Mercer & Carmichael
