The Lyrics

You all know that image of the lazy rich person eating grapes while getting fanned by a leaf-wielding sap? What does the sap think of this arrangement?
Of all the things you make me do
This is the one I feel's the worst, i-it's true-ue-ue
Just the worst, i-it's true-ue-ue
Upon that chaise longue you will lie
Like a slob, lie while all that I ca-an do-o-o
All that you let me-e do-o-o

Is I-I fa-a-an, I fan while you ea-eat gra-a-apes
I mu-ust fa-a-an, I'll fan your arse a-all da-a-ay
It's not fun, I must sa-ay

The feelin' in my feet is dead
Why must I stand here wavin' leaves a-at you-ou-ou?
What's the reaso-on, du-u-ude?
Your air con isn't broken, Bill
And plus it ain't that hot, so what's wi-ith you-ou-ou?
Why are you such a-a dou-ou-ouche?

Still I-I fa-a-an, I fan while you ea-eat gra-a-apes
Forced to-o fa-a-an, to fan your arse a-all da-a-ay
Waste of a sunny da-ay

Not the first time you've pulled this, mate
Too often you decide that you ca-an't mo-o-ove
Rephrase that: wo-on't mo-o-ove
And so you force me into this
Cause otherwise you won't pay the re-ent? Du-u-ude
I think that's rea-eal ru-u-ude

Fine, I-I'll fa-a-an, I'll fan while you ea-eat gra-a-apes
But I-I'll fa-a-an, I'll fan your grapes a-awa-a-ay
Sure, I-I'll fa-a-an, I'll fan while you ea-eat gra-a-apes
But I-I'll fa-a-an, I'll fan til you free-eeze, ma-a-ate

Could be worse. They could both have the ridiculous Flock of Seagulls haircut. Then the poor sap will have to look at it all day, but he can't think "at least my haircut's more sensible" because he knows that it isn't.
