"Lazy Sunday" as written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane....
A-wouldn't it be nice to get on with me neighbours?
But they make it very clear, yhey've got no room for ravers
They stop me from groovin', they bang on me wall
They doing me crust in, it's no good at all, ah
Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
I close my eyes and drift away-a
Here we all are sittin' in a rainbow
Gor blimey, hello Mrs. Jones, how's old Bert's lumbago? (he mustn't grumble)
(Tweedle-dee) I'll sing you a song with no words and no tune (twiddly-dee)
To sing in your party while you souse at the moon (oh yeah)
Lazy Sunday afternoon, I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift away-a

Root-de-doo-de-doo, a-root-de-doot-de-doy-di
A-root-de-doot-de-dum, a-ree-de-dee-de-doo-dee (doo-doo, doo-doo)
There's no one to hear me, there's nothing to say
And no one can stop me from feeling this way, yeah
Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift away
Lazy Sunday afternoon
I've got no mind to worry
Close my eyes and drift a-
Close my mind and drift away, close my eyes and drift away

    General CommentCorrection 1:
    They doing me crust in

    should be
    They're doin' me crust in

    British slang for "They are sending me crazy"

    General CommentCorrection 2:

    To sing in your party

    should be

    To sing in ya karzi

    British slang for toilet, in this case located in the back yard where one could sit and gaze at the moon.


    To sing in your party

    General CommentI'm pretty damn sure the words are

    "To sing in your karzi
    while you flush out the moon"

    If you listen closely, you can hear the outside loo being flushed just after Steve sings it.

    General CommentHehe I never looked at the lyrics before - always thought it was 'How's your BIRD'S lumbago' which I thought was weird - was I right or wrong?

    General CommentI always thought it was "How's your Bert's lumbago" which is a combination of what is posted and Sunnyhill's version
