You know I am gettin' tired doing all the work my self
(Man you ain't doin' all the work)
I just can't seem to get the help around here
(Oh, Johny don't give me that man)

Can't you hear me
(I hear you, baby)
No, I guess not

Lazybones sleeping in the sun
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
Sleeping in the new day's sun

(Nah, that's your side of the story, Johny)
Tell me yours
(I'm about to tell you now)

Lazybones sleepin' in the shade
How you 'spect to get your cornmeal made?
You'll never get your cornmeal made
Just sleepin' in the evenin' shade

When 'taters need spraying I bet you keep praying
The bugs fall off the vine
And when you go fishin', I bet you keep wishin'
The fish won't grab your line, oh no

Lazybones loafing through the day
How you 'spect to get a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way, ha
Never heard a word I say

When 'taters need spraying I bet you keep praying
The bugs fall off the vine
And when you go fishin', I bet you keep wishin'
The fish won't grab your line

Lazybones loafing through the day
How you 'spect to make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way, well, look here
Never heard a word I say

(Man you ain't workin')
I don't get a chance to go fishin'
I have to do all the work
(Ahh, you think so, huh)
I know so

(I ain't seen no fish)
They don't bite because you still sleep
(That's 'cause you set my alarm clock 4 hours later
Just so you can brag about workin')
I don't even get a nibble
('Cause you ain't usin' the right bait man)

That fisherman [Incomprehensible]
