Armstrong, Louis - Lazybones Lyrics

Lazybones, sleepin' in the sun
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
You can't get your day's work done
Sleepin' in the noon day sun

Lazybones, layin' in the shade
How you gonna get your cornmeal made?
You can't get no cornmeal made
Sleepin' in that evening shade

When taters need sprayin',
I bet you keep prayin'
The bugs'll fall off of the vine

And when you go fishin'
I bet you keep wishin'
Them fish don't grab your line

Lazybones, loafin' all the day
How you 'spect to make a dime that way?
You won't make no dime that way
Loafin' in the shade all day

Armstrong, Louis Lazybones Comments
  1. Don McDermott

    It's not Bing Crosby, but you all were very close... It's Bing's son, Gary Crosby! He and Louis recorded this in 1955. Of course, Bing and Satchmo performed the song as well, you can find a live version of them on YouTube as well.

    That's not Bing Crosby with Louis I think that's Johnny Mercer

    Ercdared Entertainment

    Nah I think it's Mercer

    Beau Leaver

    It's Gary Crosby, Bings son singing this with Louis. TBH I think his version is better than his dads imo.
