[A]Long as there is c[D9]hicken gravy [F7]on your r[E7]ice,[F7] ev'ryt[E7]hing is [A]nice; [E7]
[A]Long as there's a [D9]watermelon [F7]on the v[E7]ine, [F7] ever'th[E7]ing is f[A]ine. [D9] [A]
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]You won't ever ch[D9]ange, no [F7]matter what I s[E7]ay --
[F7]You're just m[E7]ade that w[A]ay.
[A]La [A7]- zy - b[D9]ones, s[A]leepin' [A7]in the [D9]sun,
[A]How you 'sp[A7]ect to [D9]get your [A]day's work d[A7]one?
You'll n[D9]ever get your [Dm7]day's work d[E7]one s[D9]leepin' in the [F7]noon [E7]day [A]sun.
[A]La [A7]- zy - b[D9]ones, s[A]leepin' [A7]in the [D9]shade,
[A]How you 'sp[A7]ect to [D9]get your [A]cornmeal ma[A7]de?
You'll n[D9]ever get your [Dm]cornm[Dm7]eal [E7]made s[D9]leepin' in the [F7]eve - n[E7]ing sh[A]ade.
[A7]When t[D]aters need sp[D6]rayin', I b[A]et you keep prayin'
D9 C A
The bugs fall off the vine;
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?
You'll n[D9]ever make a d[Dm]ime t[Dm7]hat [E7]way. [D9]Never heard a w[F7]ord [E7]I s[A]ay.
