  • Mood:

I have no idea where this is going

The birds outside are making noise
I wish that they'd shut up today
My dog decided I don't need
To sleep enough, so go away

I do not feel like doing work
I want to stay in bed and sleep
I just want money to roll in
Without committments I must keep

Why can't I get a job doing nothing?
Why can't I get a job lying in bed, going nowhere?
Why can't I get a job doing nothing?
Having to work to earn my keep -- it just isn't fair!

I want to have somebody pay
For me to hang out at the beach
If only I got paid to hang out
Sipping drinks at two bucks each

I'd like it if I got paid money
Just to read or watch TV
Especially if management
Would leave the choices up to me

Why can't I get a job doing nothing?
Why can't I get a job sitting around, going nowhere?
Why can't I get a job doing nothing?
Having to work to earn my keep -- it just isn't fair!
