Lazy Today
Lazy Today [Joe Kretschmer, Oct. 2002]

Today I'm just being lazy, doing nothing at all.
Laying down on a comfy couch, staring at the wall.
If there's something needs to be done, it can wait 'til another day.
'Cause today I'm just being lazy, and nothin's getting' in my way.

(Well) I know these are difficult times, and there's lots of work to be done.
But it's just as important to have yourself a little fun.
Life is very fragile, it can disappear in a wink.
Life goes on even after we're gone, makes you stop and think.

Telephone's ringin' but I don't care; I'm not leavin' my easy chair.
Leave a message after the beep; I might listen if I'm not asleep
If time is money then today it's goin' cheap.

Well, I've seen folks leading frantic lives, and it's not a pretty sight.
They run around all day with furrowed brows, toss and turn all night.
You can live your life full of stress and strife; it ain't gonna do ya no good.
All you get for that fuss and fret is to end up in a box of wood.

[bridge 2]
Rivers flow down to the sea; they don't need any help from me.
Sun comes up and the Earth spins 'round; flowers grow right out of the ground.
These things don't stop just because I'm lyin' down?

So today I'm just being lazy, gonna be good to myself.
Gonna do something that's just plain fun, leave my cares on the shelf.
All those things that need my attention, they can just wait for a while.
Because today I'm being lazy, gonna end up the day with a smile.
Yeah, today I'm being lazy, gonna enjoy life for a while.
