It's not 'cause I shouldn't
It's not 'cause I couldn't
And you know
That it's not 'cause I couldn't
It's simply because
I'm the laziest gal in town

My poor heart is achin'
To bring home bacon
And if I find myself
Alone and I'm forsaken
It's simply because
I'm the laziest gal in town

Though I'm more
Than willing to learn
How these gals
Get money to burn
Every little proposition
I turn it down
'Way down

It's not 'cause I wouldn't
It's not 'cause I shouldn't
And, you know
That it's not 'cause
I couldn't
It's simply because
I'm the laziest gal in town
