Lying In Bed

Here I am lying in bed, what a dread. Making

No effort to get up to go to work. I’d rather

Shirk than start a day feeling half asleep, so

I’m staying here and counting sheep.

Then my phone begins to ring. I know it is my

Boss, wondering where I am, but I’m remaining

here and he can go and get lost. I’m not going out

There in the cold and frost and working all

Day in the freezing cold until the day I get old.

Then I hear someone shout – you are not 

Staying there all day so get out of bed and get

Off to work. But, mum, it is so cold. I’d rather

Stay here till the day I go bold!
