The Lyrics

Slackers don't just happen. There's a lot of work and experience that goes into developing the proper attitude ...
1: Hey, Dude, don't feel too bad.
It's not your fault that you're a cracker--.
Remember, your mother did her own part
to get a start- to make a slacker.

2: Hey, Dude, you've made the grade.
You were made to go be a hacker--.
The minute you let go all discipline,
then you'll begin- to be a slacker.

And anytime you feel like work, just think, "You jerk!",
and go back to sleep upon the sofa-.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool.
by making this world a little closer.
Dah-dah-dah, duh-duh-duh, duh-duh-duh-duh ...

3: Hey, Dude, don't put you down.
Just step back from any attacker--.
They're jealous of everything you deserve.
So spread the word- that you're a slacker.

So spit it out and gulp it in. Hey, Dude, you'll win.
You're waiting for someone to do it for you.
And don't you know that you're no fool, hey, Dude, you're cool.
The space that you need is on your shoulders-.
Dah-dah-dah, duh-duh-duh, duh-duh-duh ...

4: (repeat #1:)
... slacker, slacker, slacker, slacker ...

Duh-duh-duh, duh-duh-duh-duh, duh-duh-duh-duh ... Hey, Dude ...
( continue until 7 minutes are wasted )
