I JUST WANNA BE LAZY

I used to be ambitious, I used to be fast, 
I used to have that get-up-and-go, boom boom boom. 
I used to hurry, worry, in a flurry, you know, 
I used to wonder just how long I would last. 
     But then I got to thinking, what is this all for? 
     Now I just wanna be lazy any more. 
 
I coulda been a doctor or a lawyer, I 'spose, 
I coulda been all loaded with cash, flash flash flash. 
I coulda made the grade if I'd just stayed in my class, 
I could be wearing fancy new clothes. 
     But somehow I lost interest and wandered out the door 
     'Cause I just wanna be lazy any more. 
 
     Now I just lay around and play at worthless things: 
     Like writing songs like this, 
     Knowing when I get discovered famousness brings 
     Fine fine financial success. 
  
Guess I'll go take it easy, maybe play my guitar. 
Maybe that could make me some dough, re mi fa 
I guess I'll use my music to amuse you, who knows, 
You might just turn me into a star. 
     So come on, make me famous, that's what you are for 
     So I can get to be lazy ever more.

  C                      (E    Eb D  C) 
I used to be ambitious, I used to be fast, 
 
                                  (C    D    E) 
I used to have that get-up-and-go, boom boom boom. 
 
  F 
I used to hurry, worry, in a flurry, you know, 
 
          C              (A    G E     C) 
Used to wonder just how long I would last. 
 
         G             G7 
     But then I got to thinking, what is this all for? 
 
         Am     0        C Am C E G 
     And I just wanna be lazy any more. 
 
 
 
         F 
     Now I just lay around and play at worthless things: 
 
     C 
     Like writing songs like this, 
 
     F 
     Knowing when I get discovered famousness brings 
 
     G7 
     Fine fine financial success.
