"Lazy" as written by Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Anderson Paice....
Lazy just stay in bed
You're lazy just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread

If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw, no
If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw
You don't want to live you don't want to cry no more

Well my trying ain't done no good
I said my trying ain't done no good
You don't make no effort no not like you should

Lazy you just stay in bed
Lazy you just stay in bed
You don't want no money
You don't want no bread

    General CommentI suspect that the lyrics were added as "incidentals" following the construction of excellent guitar riffs by Blackmore.

    General Commentyeah, defintely about taking it easy, relaxing on a sunny or rainy morning for that manner. What I love is the rythm, I mean the bass, the drums and above all the guitar riffs couldn't be any better. Love this song. It just puts me I a rockin' mood..... thanks to Deep Purple, one of my all time favs

    General CommentIt's about someone who's just too lazy for their own good, not caring about anything even if it kills them.

    General CommentWhy couldn't bands these days be this cool anymore?
    Deep Purple is still one of the top in my eyes, and this song just shows how DP still deserve to be labelled "great".

    General CommentI think DP is vastily under-rated as well as Richie Blackmore for that matter.
