I woke up late today
Actually I do that everyday
Got no place to be seen
I'm not part of a scene
I'm a genius loser

Keeping counsel with my own opinion
President of the state that I'm in
Should I just stay in bed?
Should I live in my head?
Oh god, so many questions to ask

Oh, you could call me lazy
I think of it as taking my time
'Cause I don't want to do what I don't want to do
I'm the king refusenik

But, oh my god, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time

Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life, oh well

Day by day I wonder
If I will be torn asunder
By these things that I know
That nobody else knows
Or maybe it's the drinking

I guess we should consult a Bible
Everybody needs a sign or
Bless the birds and the bees
The flowers and trees
And blessed be the slacker

Oh my god, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time

Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life, oh well

You must be having a laugh
Oh god, you're having a laugh
No point in worrying if my days are a disaster
Inside my little head I'm happy ever after
Yes I am

Oh my god, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time

Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite
I missed my calling in life

Oh my god, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time

Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh, what am I like? Yeah well
