Lyrics

Lazing around in the greensward of a summer’s day,
The sun is gorgeously bright,
Falling into the arms of another shallow drowse,
A force of habit - it’s my life.

Don’t tell me to do something useful,
To be truthful this is of use to me.

Watching dragonflies hovering over golden ponds,
Forget-me-nots dancing to the breeze,
Okay - so it’s not much of an active life,
A force of habit - it’s the way I like.

Don’t tell me to do something useful,
To be truthful this is of use to me.

So please don’t dictate to me,
I can’t relate to you,
You’re not one of my kind,
You have to keep yourself occupied,
Although my body’s at rest,
I’m working my mind.
