lyrics

[D Bm A / D Bm A
D Bm A / D Dsus4 D]

i work hard to shirk all of my duties [Dsus2 Em9 G (G/F# G/E) A (A/B A/C#)]
i never roll up my sleeves every time i have the chance [Dsus2 Em9 Asus4 A/C#]
i make it a point to avoid getting my hands dirty [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
i don't pull myself up by my bootstraps when I can [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

cuz you could say that
I'm like a semi-sapient slug [G A7 (A7sus4)]
lying on top of a log [Em6 A7 A7sus4 A7]

there was a time in my life when i used to have the hunger [Dsus2 Em9 G (G/F# G/E) A (A/B A/C#)]
and the mindset of someone less encumbered [Dsus2 Em9 A A/C#]
and the world was mine to rape and pillage and plunder [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
i had a reason to rouse up from my slumber [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

but nowadays
i look at my cat [G A7 (A7sus4)]
and i wish i could be just like that [Em6 A7 Asus4 A7 Asus4 A7 Asus4 A7]

how you made connections that no one else could make [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]
and unleashed chaos that no one else could create [Bm A A/G A/E D Dsus4 D]

and nowadays
I look at my cat [G A7 (A7sus4)]
and I wish I could be just like that [Em6 A7]

asleep in the sun [D]
asleep in the sun, I wish I was [Bm A]
