"Lazy Bones" as written by and Johnny/carmichael Mercer....
Lazy bones sleepin' in the sun
How you think you gonna get your day work done
You'll never get your day work dones
Sleepin' in the noonday sun.

Lazy bones sleepin' in the shade
How you gonna get your corn meal made
You'll never get your corn meal made
Sleepin' in the noonday shade.

When taters need sprayin'
I bet you keep prayin' the bugs fall off of the vine
And when you go fishin'
I bet you keep wishin' the fish won't grab at your line.

Lazy bones loafin' through the day
How you 'spect you gonna make a dime that way
You'll never make a dime that way
Sleepin' in the noonday shade.

(Spoken part)
Lazy bones loafin' through the day
How you 'spect you gonna make a dime that way
You'll never make a dime that way
Sleepin' in the noonday shade
