Got up in the morning to find myself a future
In the Sunday classified
But then I spilled my coffee and then the telephone was ringing
Guess I got distracted but hey at least I tried
And there's just oh so many hours in a day
And oh so many little things get in the way
Like who's on Oprah and Rosie
I think my bed is too cozy
Yeah that must be it
The reason I can't motivate

Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get a life
Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get it soon
Cuz rent is due
And cardboard boxes ain't cool

Get up Monday make an afternoon appointment
Fix my hair as best I can
And then I ride on over but by the time I get there
"The job's been filled dear but thanks again"
And there's just oh so many reasons they can find
You're always either under or over-qualified
So who's on Oprah and Rosie
I'll go back to bed where it's cozy
Yeah that's my plan
Maybe next week try again

Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get a life
Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get it soon
Cuz rent is due
And cardboard boxes ain't cool

Hours pass and the days go by
And I still haven't done a thing
And I'm not proud of my laziness
But life can be discouraging

Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get a life
Do-do-do-do-do-do Gotta get it soon
Cuz rent is due
And cardboard boxes ain't cool
