What have I got to do today?
Dear god, that’s a very long list!
I’ll be rushing about from dawn until night
And I’ll probably go round the twist.
And really, I don’t want to do it
I’m sure things are not quite that dire
I’d like to take this very long list
And throw it right onto the fire
No! said my conscience, quite loudly
You know that these things must get done
Sit down and shut up! I yelled to my conscience
‘cos I just want to have fun.
From morning to night, I put up my feet
And lounged doing little, or none
Watched a movie (or two), surfed the net, read a book
Was lazy, and boy! Was it fun!
A new day dawns, so what should I do?
Oh no! I exclaim with a curse.
I don’t want to do it! It’s really not fair!
Now that damnable list’s gotten worse!
