Lyrics to Lazy Bones Mercer/ (sung by Paul Robeson and others)
As long as there's a chicken gravy on your rice
(I suppose) ev'rything is nice
As long as there's a water melone on the bine
Ev'rything is fine
You got no time to work
You got no time to play
You're busy doin' nothing all the lifelong day
But you won't ever change
No matter what I say
You just made that way
Lazy bones, sleeping in the sun
How you espect to get your day's work done?
You'll never get your day's work done
Sleeping in the noon day sun
Lazy bones, sleeping in the shade
How you espect to get your corn meal made?
You'll never get your corn meal made
Sleeping in the evening shade
When them 'tatos need sprayin'
I know you keep prayin'
That the bugs fall off their vine
And when you go fishing
I bet you keep wishing
The fish won't grab at your line
You know, lazy bones, loafin' all the day
How you espect to make a dime that way?
You'll ever make a dime that way
You never hear a word I say
Lazy bones, sleeping in the sun
How you espect to get your day's work done?
You'll never get your day's work done
Sleeping in the noon day sun
