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
