Lazy Bones

Lyrics

Lazybones, sleepin' in the sun. .how you 'spect to get your days work done?
You cant get your days work done. .. sleepin' in the noon day sun.

Lazybones, layin' in the shade. .how you gonna get your cornmeal made?
You can't get no cornmeal made. .sleepin' in that evening shade.

When taters need sprayin, I bet you keep prayin'
The bugs'll fall off of the vine
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin'
Them fish don't grab your line.

Lazybones, loafin' all the day. .. how you 'spect to make a dime that way?
You wont make no dime that way. .. loafin' in the shade all day.

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the sun,
How ya gonna get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Sleepin' in the noon-day sun.

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the shade,
How ya gonna get your cornmeal made?
Never get your cornmeal made,
Sleepin' in the noon-day shade.

And when the potatoes need sprayin',
I betcha keep prayin' that the bugs fall off the vine.
And when you go fishin' I betcha keep wishin'
That the fish won't grab at your line.

Lazy Bones, loafin' through the day,
Ain't never gonna make a dime that way.
You'll never make a dime that way,
And you don't hear a word Isay.

Lazy Bones, sleepin' in the sun,
How ya gonna get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done,
Sleepin' in the noon-day sun.

The song means that you are lazy! You will not get the potatoes sprayed for bugs, you pray you do not catch fish so you will not have to clean or cook them, you don't want to grind corn to make cornmeal so corn bread can be made for dinner! That's becouse he spends his time sleeping and resting all the time.
