"Lazy" as written by Darren House, Darren Kevin Rock, David Byrne and Hallam Ashley Beedle....
I'm Lazy when I'm loving
I'm Lazy when I play
I'm lazy with my girlfriend, a thousand times a day
I'm lazy when I'm speakin
I'm lazy when I walk
I'm lazy when I'm dancin
I'm lazy when I talk

Open up my mouth
Air comes rushin out
Nothin doin nada never how you like me now?
Wouldn't it be mad, wouldn't it be fine
Lazy lucky lady dancin lovin all the time

Ohh , I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ohh, Don't you want to save me?

I'm lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy

There's some folks they got money &
Some folks life is sweet
Some folks make decisions &
Some folks clean the street

Now, Imagine what it feels like
Imagine how it sounds
Imagine life is perfect and every thing works out

No tears are falling from my eyes
I'm keepin all the pain inside
Now don't you want to live with me?
I'm lazy as a man can be

Ohh , I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ohh, Don't you want to save me

I'm lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy

Imagine there's a girlfriend
Imagine there's a job
Imagine there's an answer
Imagine there's a God
Imagine I'm a Devil
Imagine I'm a Saint
Lazy money, lazy sexy, lazy outa space

No tears are falling from my eyes
I'm keepin all the pain inside
Now don't you want to live with me?
I'm lazy as a man can be

Ohh , I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ohh, Don't you want to save me

Lazy when I work
Lazy all the day
Screamin all you like but it only fades away
I'm lazy when I'm prayin
Lazy on the job
Gota lazy mind, a lazy eye, a lazy lazy bod

Hard men, Hard Lives, Hard keepin it all inside
Good times, Good God, I'm so Lazy I almost stop

Ohh , I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ohh, Don't you want to save me

I'm lazy, lazy, lazy, lazy

Ohh , I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ohh, Don't you want to save me

    Song MeaningI think this song is a reflection on the modern world where some people choose to do nothing with their lives and find it easier to just live off the work of others and the comparatively comfortable life that society allows even those who do nothing to help themselves to have.

    It is a reflection both of the fundamental selfishness of these people, but also of the tragedy of them. How they would love to live life, to have money, a girlfriend and a job and all those other things, but are trapped in a cycle of laziness and dependency.

    General CommentI think this song is just a plain-and-simple comical observation of a fictional character. I think the appeal of the song, to the band and to the audience, is its honesty and its mundaneness. Truly a brilliant, brilliant song.

    My InterpretationI think the singer is meant to be the opposite of lazy.

    In the first verse he claims he's lazy while he speaks, walks, dances, talks... a lot of things going on, for a lazy man. He's working very hard, in fact, to put up the impression of being uncaringly, untouchably cool:

    No tears are falling from my eyes
    I'm keepin' all the pain inside


    That doesn't sound easy to do. Why is he doing it?

    Now don't you want to live with me?
    I'm lazy as a man can be


    Oh. He can't be seen to put forth this much effort to appear effortless; it would ruin his image as being carefree and attractive. It's "hard keeping it all inside," so much so that he'd "almost stop."

    He's closer to the people who clean the street than the ones with money and decisions, but he can't appear to envy them or the ignominy of his position catches up with him. The music underscores this; a fast, hard-driving rhythm for the continual assurances that he's very, very lazy. Really. Just listen to him. So lazy.
