Lyrics Print

Sittin on a fence post
I'm on top of the world
Higher up than most
Lower than the birds

If I climb down to hide
The wolves will see my tail
And who can abide
Monsters on their trail

I know you see me and I can't see you
I'm up here looking but I'm hunting too
Never did I see such a beautiful day
Although I might sit here until it goes away

Laziness is godliness
And godliness is peace
Peace is universally
Regarded as release

Oohh oh oh
Scratch my back and call another day

Man I'm getting hungry
Didn't I just eat
Various sundry
Different kinds of meat

My mind starts to wander
The wind begins to howl
The wolves surround me under
They begin to growl

I know they see me and they can't see you
Right down there looking at me hunting too
Never did I see such a miserable day
It looks as if I'll sit here until it goes away

Laziness is godliness
And godliness is peace
Peace is universally
Regarded as release

Oohh oh oh
Scratch my back and call another day
