Lazy Bones (Mercer/Carmichael)


Oh, Lazy bones sleepin' in the sun how you think you gonna get your day work done
Never get your day work dones sittin' 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

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.
