Don't wanna do it, just want to sit here instead If you can deal with the guilt it can be good for your head Don't wanna do it, just need a little time off To be all by myself with just my couch and my thoughts You see, my natural inclination leans toward constant meditation And without one hesitation I can say That I much prefer hibernation to perennial migration If I were a goose I'd surely take a plane They call me lazy, lazy, and I I'd have to agree They call me lazy, lazy, ah but what's that to me Can't you see... That I don't deserve gettin' beat up for just wantin' to put my feet up So please excuse me kindly when I say I'd rather sleep the day away, because the night's my time to play Gets my juiced flowing and soothes my insanity They call me lazy, lazy, and I I'd have to agree They call me lazy, lazy, ah the climb's just too steep Why can't you just let me sleep... "Another hour, another day", they heard old Rip Van Winkle say As he set his alarm to go off precisely at three And there old Rip will lay my friends, until the judgement day You see, I know.....Because he's just like me They call me lazy, lazy....

It’s a gross miscalculation to say that I’m insane And I’m not superstitious ‘bout a broken window pane So I’ll hold my breath ’til ten, we’ll do it all again, it’s Halloween While the bloody pendulum swings, i don’t know up from down It’s the wildest of dreams now that you are back in town So I’ll hold my breath ’til ten, we’ll do it all again, it’s Halloween Oh the Ghosts of Canterbury and the Hounds of Baskerville Ain’t got nothin’ on you honey, when you move in for the kill While the wind is wildly howling, in the night the spirits prowling Halloween…it’s Halloween Out of nowhere phantoms leering, through the mist their faces peering Halloween…it’s Halloween From my bed I’m fearful-leaping, from the shadows ghouls are creeping Halloween…it’s Halloween So child be wary while you’re sleeping, undead souls are grimly reaping Halloween…it’s Halloween What’s floating in your drink, dear, is that an olive or an eye? Is it queer to think this way, dear, should I laugh or should I cry? Though it started innocently, came upon me rather gently You could say that I’ve gone quite insane And despite all my best wishes, from now on I’m superstitious Black cats, ladders, runnin’ round my brain So I’ll hold my breath ’til ten, we’ll do it all again, it’s Halloween Yes I’ll hold my breath ’til ten, we’ll do it all again, it’s Halloween It’s Halloween…it’s Halloween

It was down in old Joe's barroom On the corner by the square The drinks were bein' served as usual And the usual crowd was there When up stepped old Joe McGinty And his eyes, they were blood-shot red As he poured himself one big old shot o' whiskey Brother these were the words he said I went down to Saint James Infirmary Just to see my baby there Stretched out on a big white table So smooth, so cold, so fair...well Let her go, let her go, God bless her Wherever she may be She may search this whole wide world over And she'll never find a man like me There was sixteen coal-black horses HItched to a rubber-tired hack There was seven women goin' down to the graveyard But only six of them was comin' back Now that you heard my story Pour me one more shot of booze And if anyone comes askin' about me Tell em' I've got the Saint James Infirmary blues

Well I'm sailin' away on a steam-powered aeroplane I went and I stayed and I damn near didn't come back again Didn't go very fast on a steam-powered aeroplane The wheels go around and up and down and inside and then back again Sittin' on a seven-forty-seven just watchin' them clouds roll by Can't tell if it's sunshine or it's rain Rather be sittin' in a deck-chair high up over Kansas City On my genuine, old-fashioned, all-authentic steam-powered airplane Well I could be a pilot on a steam-powered aeroplane I'd turn that pilot wheel around and then back again And I'd wear a blue hat, yeah, that says' "steam-powered aeroplane" The letters go around the rim and then back again Sittin' on a seven-forty-seven just watchin' them clouds roll by Can't tell if it's sunshine or it's rain Rather be sittin' in a deck-chair high up over Kansas City On my genuine, old-fashioned, all-authentic steam-powered aeroplane

Well I'm sittin' down here on Parchman Farm Well I'm sittin' down here on Parchman Farm Well I'm sittin' down here on Parhcman Farm Aint' never done no man no harm Well I'm sittin' down here on Number Nine Yeah I'm sittin' down here on Number Nine Well I'm sittin' down here on Number Nine All I ever did was drink my wine Well I'm puttin' that cotton in eleven-foot sack Well I'm puttin' that cotton in eleven-foot sack Well I'm puttin' that cotton in eleven-foot sack Twelve-guage shotgun at my back Well I'm sittin' down here for the rest of my life Yeah I'm sittin' down here for the rest of my life Well I'm sittin' down here for the rest of my life And all I ever did was shoot my wife On Parchman Farm, on Parchman Farm...
