Ev'ry time 
I see a puppy upon a summer's day 
A puppy dog at play 
My heart is filled with envy 
That's because 
My heart is yearning to pass the time away 
Like that pup 
'cause I'm all fed up 
And tho' it's wrong to be 
I long to be 

I want to be lazy 
I want to be out in the sun 
With no work to be done 

Under that awning 
They call the sky 
Stretching and yawning 
And let the world go drifting by 

I want to peep 
Through the deep 
Tangled wildwood 
Counting sheep 
'til I sleep 
Like a child would 

With a great big valise full 
Of books to read where it's peaceful 
While I'm 
Killing time 
Being lazy 

Life is short 
And getting shorter with each day that goes by 
And how the time does fly 
Before you know, it's over 
That's why I'm 
In such a hurry to pack my things and fly 
To a spot 
Where it's nice and hot 
And hear the birdies sing 
While I'm being
