Why get up, why get up 
How can I get up, why should I get up 
This whole world's gone crazy 
Think I've seen enough 
I'm gonna sleep forever why get up 
Phone keeps ringing right off the hook 
Some bill collector, I know what cooks 
Think I'll stay in bed, dream all day 
World outside bugs me anyway 
When I get things going, the going gets rough 
So I ask myself why get up 
Chorus 
Went to the doctor, he said lose some weight 
If you don't do it quick, we'll have to operate 
I talked to my lawyer, he said case is closed 
That woman got it all even the garden hose 
Staring at the ceiling thinking just my luck 
Better roll back over why get up 
Chorus 
Well I can't quit drinking, I'm nervous all the time 
When I wake up, it's like a ton lead on my mind 
What was it, I said to that girl last night 
She really got upset, I best stay out of sight 
I remember a gun and calling somebody's bluff 
I better duck under the cover why get up 
Chorus 
Chorus
