I am the king of burning daylight, and holdin' my own
I've been doin', alright, leaving well enough alone
My Daddy told me, I was lazy, my momma said, I love you too

I kind of Like just, doin' Nothing, It's something that I do
I kind of like just, doin' Nothing, It's something that I do

I read the sports page, make some coffee, turn the TV on
I feed the gold Fish, fix a sandwich, ignore the telephone
My baby tells me, you're so lazy, my baby say, we love you too


I kind of Like just, doin' Nothing, it's something that I do
*background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
It's something that I do

I got a cabin, and a campfire, stars up in the sky "sky" echoes
I've got a ummm, good hearted woman, I think I'm getting by
I tell my baby, I am the?barritz?, my baby says you love me too




I kind of Like just doin' Nothing, It's something that I do
*background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
It's something that I do

Alright

...

I love a clear day, a open highway, a lonesome fiddle tune
I love a party, with friends and family, napping in the afternoon
I might be lazy, I ain't crazy, I love my baby, she loves me too

I kind of Like, just doin' Nothing, It's something that I do

I kind of Like, *background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
Just doin' Nothing, It's Something that I do

I kind of Like *background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
Just doin' Nothing, It's Something that I do

*background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
It's something that I do

*background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
It's something that I do

I kind of Like, just doin' Nothing, It's something that I do
*background* (He kind of Likes just doin' Nothing),
It's something that I do

Alright
