The Lyrics

Hey, remember me? *crickets chirp*. Guess not. Well, I'm back from the dead with another poor to mediocre parody. Yay.
It's a big chore just gettin' up to go poop and then wipe
but I've been a lazy man dang near all my life
I keep sittin', and then complain that there's nothin' to do
I'll eat my chips and my snack cakes,
sing a little bit of these Lazy Man Blues

I keep my ass on the sofa, watch shows like Star Trek
I might get dressed up on the first 'o', after I get my check
but I'll be back sittin', after I go spend my stamps on some junk food
I'll order a pizza that evenin'
sing a little bit of these Lazy Man Blues

Well, hey hey a lazy man, a lazy man like me
I've always been on welfare and that's where I'll always be
Yeah, I'll be sittin', channel changin' is all the work I'll do
I'll watch PPV porno,
moan a little bit of these Lazy Man Blues

There sits that lazy man...

Sometimes I think about changin' clothes and then goin' to town
I might get me a job at McDonalds, earn a wage like those other clowns
Ah, but I keep sittin, 'cause it's almost Fall when the TV shows are new
I drink my beer wearin' Depends
sing a little bit of these Lazy Man Blues

Well, hey hey a lazy man, a lazy man like me
I've always been on welfare and that's where I'll always be
Yeah, I'll keep sittin', and then complain that there's nothing to do
Well, I already used that line,
but what did you expect from Lazy Man Blues?

This song's from a lazy man
This parody's lyrics make me feel a bit defensive, so I'd just like to point out it's pure fiction (fantasy?). I work. Believe me, do I ever work. :(

Thanks AFW. I knew this wouldn't get a lot of votes, but I had hoped you'd like it since you've said in the past that you like classic country as well. I'm relieved and grateful you did. :) Thanks again.
