You've [A7]got no [G7]time to w[F#7]ork, no [F7]time to [F#7]play,    
[B7]Busy doin' nothin' all the l[F7]ive long d[E7]ay;

[A]La   [A7]- zy - b[D9]ones, s[A]leepin' [A7]in the [D9]sun,

[A]La   [A7]- zy - b[D9]ones, s[A]leepin' [A7]in the [D9]shade,

Bridge:
[A7]When t[D]aters need sp[D6]rayin', I b[A]et you keep prayin'
The b[D9]ugs fall [Cdim]off the v[A]ine;
And w[A]hen you go f[G#7]ishin' I b[G7]et you keep wi[F#7]shin'    
That the f[D9]ish won't g[F7]rab at your li[E7]ne.   

[A]La   [A7]- zy - b[D9]ones, l[A]oafin' t[A7]hrough [D9]the day,
[A]How you 'sp[A7]ect to [D9]make a di[A]me that w[A7]ay?

Intro Verse:
Long as there is chicken gravy on your rice, ev'rything is nice;
Long as there's a watermelon on the vine, ever'thing is fine.
You've got no time to work, no time to play,
Busy doin' nothin' all the live long day;
You won't ever change, no matter what I say --
You're just made that way.

Melody:

La - zy - bones, sleepin' in the sun,
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
You'll never get your day's work done sleepin' in the noon day sun.

La - zy - bones, sleepin' in the shade,
How you 'spect to get your cornmeal made?
You'll never get your cornmeal made sleepin' in the eve - ning shade.

Bridge:
When taters need sprayin', I bet you keep prayin'
The bugs fall off the vine;
And when you go fishin' I bet you keep wishin'
That the fish won't grab at your line.

La - zy - bones, loafin' through the day,
How you 'spect to make a dime that way?
You'll never make a dime that way. Never heard a word I say.

Instrumental Interlude: 2 verses
