Thread Name: ADD: Lazybones (Mercer & Carmichael)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: LAZY BONES
I've got them somewhere; let's see what I can do...

Lazybones, sleeping in the sun,
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Lyin' in the noon day sun.

Lazybones, sleepin' in the shade,
How you 'spect to get your cornmeal made?
Never get your cornmeal made,
Sleepin' in the noon day shade.

When the 'taters need sprayin',
I bet you keep prayin'
The bugs fall off the vine.
And when you go fishin',
I bet you keep wishin'
The fish don't grab at your line!

Lyin' through the day,
How you 'spect to make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way.
You never heard a word I say!
