Lazybones, sleeping in the sun
How you expect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
Sleeping in the noon day's sun

Lazybones, sleeping in the shade
How you expect to make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way
Sleeping in the evening shade

Lazybone (time to work)
Lazybone (time to play)
Lazy (lazybone) doing nothing all the live long day (lazybone)

Lazybone, sleeping in the sun
How you expect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
(Sleeping in the) noon day's sun

Lazybone (time to work)
Lazybones (time to play)
Busy (lazybone) doing nothing all the live long day (lazybone)

Lazybones, sleeping in the shade
How you expect to make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way
Sleeping in the evening shade

Lazybones (time to work, time to play)
Busy (lazybone) doing nothing all the time
Never make a dime that way (lazybone)
Busy doing nothing all the time (lazy)
