Lazy bones, sleepin' in the sun
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
Sleepin' in the noon day sun

Now, lazy bones, sleepin' in the shade
How you expect to get your corn meal made?
You'll never get your corn meal made
Just sleepin' in the evening shade

When tainers need sprayin', I bet you keep prayin'
The bugs'll fall off the vine
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin'
The fish won't grab your line

Now, lazy bones, loafin' through the day
How you 'xpect to make a dime that way?
You'll never make a dime that way
Never heard a word I say

Now when tainers need sprayin', I bet you keep prayin'
That the bugs'll fall off the vine
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin'
That the cat fish drops your line

Lazy bones, loafin' through the day
How you 'xpect to get a dime that way?
You'll never make a dime that way
Now look here, never heard a word I say
