Lazy John

print

Work all week in the noon day sun
Fifteen cents when Saturday comes
Goin to a dance to have some fun
Why don’t you get away lazy John

    Lazy John lazy John
    Why don’t you get your day’s work all done
    You’re in the shade and I’m in the sun
    Why don’t you get away lazy John

My gal lives at the end of the road
Her eyes are crossed and her legs are bowed
But We sure have a lot of fun
Why don’t you get away lazy John

Goin to a dance Saturday night
Ain’t coming home til the bald daylight
Then I’ll take my girl back home
Why don’t you get away lazy John
