lyrics

I got a guy who lives by the road,
Eyes are crooked and his legs are bowed,
But he sure is a lot of fun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

I woke up at the break of day,
Down to the fields try to earn my pay,
Then much later you came along,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

We're gonna dance on Saturday night,
We're gonna dance 'til the morning light,
Then I'm gonna take my sweetie back home,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.

Lazy John, Lazy John
Why don't you get your day's work all done.
I'm in the shade, you're in the sun,
Why don't you get away, Lazy John.
