Some folks make hasty decisions
They live their life on the go
I can't be bothered 
To give a damn 'bout anything and
Some people say I'm a pro
You're busy climbing the ladder
I'm busy lying in bed
It doesn't matter if anybody calls me names 
And I'm gonna f*ck off instead, because

We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
Don't care, just phone it in
Get bored, just phone it in
We're gonna phone it in

You busy yourself with fashion
I busy myself with fun
I'm busy painting these mini-metal skeletons
And you say I'm dressed like a bum
You say that you've got a passion
About what you've gotta do
You say you can't wait to buckle down
And start your day
And I'm less excited than you, because

We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
Don't care, just phone it in
Get bored, just phone it in
We're gonna phone it in

We are the ones
The ones who never gave a damn
We are the ones without even a basic plan
Out in the sun
We are the ones enjoying it
You work too hard
I quit, I quit, I quit, I quit
And I'm tired of people complaining
My best is not good enough
I'm only doing the minimum to get me through
And if you don't like it, then tough because

We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
Want pizza, phone it in
Hate work, phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
We're gonna phone it in
