Lazy bones, sleepin' in the sun
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
I'm sleepin' in this noon day sun
Lazy bones, lyin' in the shade
How you 'spect to get your cornmeal made?
Never get your cornmeal made
I'm sleepin' in this evening 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 don't grab at your line
Lazy bones, loafin' all the day
How you gonna make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way
Never hear a word I say
