Lazybones

[Johnny Adams]
You know I'm gettin' tired of doing all the work myself.
 
[Harry Connick]
Man, you ain't doin' all the work!
 
[Johnny Adams]
I just can't seem to get any help around here.
 
[Harry Connick]
Oh Johnny, don't give me that, man.
 
[Johnny Adams]
Can't you hear me?
 
[Harry Connick]
I hear you, baby!!
 
[Johnny Adams]
No, I guess not.
 
[Johnny Adams]
Lazybones1, sleeping in the sun.
How you 'spect2 to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Sleeping in the noonday sun.
 
[Harry Connick]
Now, that's your side of the story, Johnny.
 
[Johnny Adams]
Tell me yours.
 
[Harry Connick]
I'm about to tell ya now.
 
[Harry Connick]
Oh lazybones, sleepin' in the shade.
How ya 'spect ta get your cornmeal made?
You'll never get your cornmeal made,
Just sleepin' in the evenin' shade.
 
[Johnny Adams]
When taters3 need spraying,
I'll bet you keep praying
The bugs fall off the vine.
 
[Harry Connick]
And when ya go fishin',
I bet you keep wishin'
The fish won't grab your line. Oh no.
 
[Johnny Adams]
Lazybones! Loafing through the day!
How you 'spect to get a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way,
Never heard a word I say.

Lazybones! (Lazybones) Loafing through the day! (Through the day)
How you 'spect to get a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way, (Well lookie here)
Never heard a word I say.
 
[Harry Connick]
Man, you ain't workin'.
 
[Johnny Adams]
I don't get a chance to go fishing. I have to do all the work.
 
[Harry Connick]
Ah you think so, huh?
 
[Johnny Adams]
I know so.
 
[Harry Connick]
I ain't seen no fish.
 
[Johnny Adams]
They don't bite because you still sleepin'.
 
[Harry Connick]
That's 'cause you set my alarm clock four hours later just so you could brag about working.
 
[Johnny Adams]
You don't even get a nibble!
 
[Harry Connick]
'Cause you ain't usin' the right bait, man.
