"The Way the Lazy Do" as written by and Toby Leaman Scott Mcmicken....
Lying on your back
In the night so black
Dreaming of sweet love
Just beneath above

There's a light on in the house
See the bug see the mouse
Hear em fight, hear em shout
Hit the lights and go out

It's just that time of the year
That brings them here

Yesterday the day got colder
Passed away got one day older
Now it seems that everything is new

Then today a rock rolled over
Came to life to kill the clover
Left to way the way the lazy do

In the dirt of the flood
There's a stick in the mud
But in the heat of the sun
It is cool to be one

It's just that time of the year
So stick right here

Yesterday the day got colder
Passed away got one day older
Now it seems that everything is new

Then today a rock rolled over
Came to life to kill the clover
Left to lay the way the lazy do

May your thoughts be kind
May your knots unwind
May your dogs drink wine
May your days kill time

And may your fears go blind
As your regret rewinds
A little peace of mind
May you wake to find

It's just that time of the year
That holds you dear

    General CommentTwo of my favorite Dr. Dog lines:

    "May your days kill time"

    and

    "Love to lay the way the lazy do"

    How very Syd Barrett (really a technique of classical poetry) of Scott to rhyme words within the line like that instead of just the end of the line

    Easily one of my favorite Dr. Dog lyrics. The way the lazy do, coming out of life rather than being brought into it.
