In Praise of Lazy Husbands

I

I have never tried embedding a video in this blog before, but I think you’ll enjoy this one. The song, the performance, and the videography are all the work of a friend’s self-proclaimed lazy husband (szabo23 on YouTube). If you’ve ever accused your guy of being lazy, you may think he stole the lyrics from you.

  • I believe the lyrics go like this, Beth…
    I don’t need no work clothes, honey.
    They got no work for me.
    I ain’t got nothing else to do
    but to sit and watch TV.
    There ain’t nothing out there, honey.
    I don’t need no suit and tie.
    I’m gonna sit here by myself.
    I’m gonna sit here ’til I die.
    Call me lazy. I don’t care.
    I’m gonna sit here in my underwear,
    in my favorite chair.
    Lazy.
    That’s right.
    Lazy.
    Uh huh.
    Lazy.
    No, ma’am, I ain’t movin’.
    Lazy.
    You all go ahead, I’m’a stay here.
    Lazy.
    Go on, you all go have a good time. Don’t you worry about me none. I’ll be fine.
    Lazy.
    Damn! They don’t ever slow down.
    There was a time I used to think
    it was good to be alive.
    There seemed to be a point to it.
    And I would work from 9 to 5.
    But then one day I realized
    I was acting like a fool.
    It doesn’t make a difference.
    It doesn’t matter what you do.
    It took a while to see things clear.
    My dues are paid,
    and now I’m sitting here.
    And I believe I’ll have another beer.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
    Lazy.
