John Stevens

I don't like to work but I got to. When my friends ask for advice, I tell them not to.
I'm gonna move way down South where it's too hot to, 'cause I don't like to work.
Chorus:
It's not just because I'm lazy. It's not just because I'm crazy.
The reason from the bottom of my heart, I don't like it 'cause I'm too damn smart.

Well, you can work 'till you're too old. You don't have to. That's the kind of logic I just give a laugh to.
When they find out doing nothing is a craft, too, then I'll go back to work. (Oh, yeah!) [Chorus:]

Well, you can work 'till you're too old. You don't have to. That's the kind of logic I just give a laugh to.
When they find out doing nothing is a craft, too, then I'll go back to work. (Come on, let's get started!)
I'll go back to work. (Oh, yeah!)
