You hardly even notice
When i try to show you this
Song is meant to keep you
From doin what your supposed to
Wakin up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
Makin banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now
We could pretend that all the time
Cant you see that its just rainin
There aint no need to go outside
Just maybe
Halaka uka layly mama made a baby
Really dont mind the practice
Cuz your my little lady
Lady lady love me
Cuz i love to lay you lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like theres no work outside
We could pretend that all the time
Cant you see that its just rainin
There aint no need to go outside

The telephone rings
Sayin its too early dont pick it up
We dont need to
We got everything we need right here
And everything we need is enough
Just so easy when everything you need has got his mama's eyes
And your whole world fits in your arms
And you know
And i know
That you know

Baby
You hardly even notice
When i try to show you this
Song is meant to keep you
From doin what your supposed to
Wakin up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
Makin banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now
We could pretend that all the time
Cant you see that its just rainin
There aint no need to go outside
Aint no need, aint no need
Rain all day and i really really dont mind
Cant you see?, cant you see?

    General Comment:I love this song a lot. Reminds me of me and my wife a lot.

    I thought the line that says
    "Halaka uka layly mama made a baby"
    really said
    "Like a ukele, mama made a baby"

    heh.

    General Comment:This song is my new favorite song and it has a simple meaning. Its just saying that you've got to relax once in a while and not be in such a rush. Its a great song and Jack Johnson is amazing!

    General Comment:several things are wrong with these lyrics beyond whats already been mentioned.

    just as the song begins, right before "you hardly..." it goes:

    "well can't you see that its just raining
    there aint no need to go outside.."

    After the second verse and after "no need to go outside"

    it goes:

    "aint no need aint no need mm mmm mmm
    can't you see? can't you see?
    rain all day and I don't mind"

    In verse three the real line is:

    "It's just so easy when the whole world fits inside of your arms
    no really need to pay attention to the alarm
    wake up slow
    mmm mmm mmm
    wake up slow"

    those are the best lines of the entire song, I'm not sure where you got the lines you posted.

    General Comment:um well actually it is hala ka ukelele, which basically means busted in like a teasing way. you know how we say jessie and john sittin in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G... like that. thats why afterwards he says mama made a baby, as in his wife.... here are the lyrics off his actual site

    You hardly even notice
    When I try to show you this
    Song it’s meant to keep you
    From doing what you’re supposed to
    Like waking up too early
    Maybe we could sleep in
    I’ll make you banana pancakes

    Pretend like it’s the weekend now
    And we could pretend it all the time
    Can’t you see that it’s just raining
    There ain’t no need to go outside

    But just maybe, hala ka ukulele
    Mama made a baby
    I really don’t mind the practice
    Because you’re my little lady
    Lady, lady love me
    Because I love to lay here lazy
    We could close the curtains

    Pretend like there’s no world outside
    And we could pretend it all the time
    Can’t you see that it’s just raining
    There ain’t no need to go outside

    Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
    Can’t you see, can’t you see
    Rain all day and I don’t mind

    Telephone singing, ringing, it’s too early
    Don’t pick it up
    We don’t need to
    We got everything we need right here
    And everything we need is enough
    It’s just so easy
    When the whole world fits inside of your arms
    Do we really need to pay attention to the alarm
    Wake up slow, wake up slow

    But baby, you hardly even notice
    When I try to show you this
    Song it’s meant to keep you
    From doing what you’re supposed to
    Like waking up too early
    Maybe we could sleep in
    I’ll make you banana pancakes

    Pretend like it’s the weekend now
    And we could pretend it all the time
    Can’t you see that it’s just raining
    There ain’t no need to go outside

    Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
    Rain all day and I really really really don’t mind
    Can’t you see, can’t you see
    We’ve got to wake up slow
