Cleaning the gutters today, thought I would write an anti work song LOL
This is called "Lazy Afternoon" I hope you like it my friends

Love Dan

Lazy Afternoon

LAZY AFTERNOON
By Dan O'Connell

Sittin' in the soft green grass
Watching as the clouds all pass
Wasting daylight on this summer afternoon
In the fields the corn is grown
Down the hill her voice is calling
Suppers ready and I'll be back home real soon

CHORUS: Molly, I can hear your voice a-calling.
Molly, it's a lazy afternoon.

Morning comes real early
When you work the western plain
Get up on the tractor and start it all again
Working 80 acres and 40 down the hill
The old barn door needs mending
And I am sittin' here.

CHORUS

It's not that I am lazy
Just tired worn out man
Rather feel the sunshine then get back to the land
Every now and then
I take a break sometimes
And sit down on the soft green grass
And watch the world go by

That's a temptation song for a person who's supposed to be outside working, Dan! Nice!

Good song and good thoughts.

My eyes were opened when I had a neighbor from Panama whose theme song was 'Life in America is hard! Americans work all the time.'

Until then, I thought nothing of it when I was sorting laundry at
11 pm so I could get up at 6 am to go to work the next day.

Not any more!

Thanks for posting your song.

Thanks Leeneia,
it is grape harvest season here. Yup my friends are out on the tractors right now in the freezing rain since 4 this morning. When the grapes are ready they have less than 8 hours to get them to the press or they start to ferment and the company won't take them. So no matter what the weather is they are there. I helped out one year. Thought I was going to die. Boy that is hard work for sure. My hats off to farmers. You are correct most people especially women with a family, it never ends. We all need a break once in awhile

I believe it was Henry David Thoreau that once said
that we spend more time trying to acquire our living than actually living.   How true for everyone huh
