Haven't done a reggae song for aaaages so the Clickers Club Scorching Sun Beach Bongo Song Challenge was the perfect excuse to sit and write one, the picture shows the intense creative process in action.
Note the fevered brow, the tormented soul, haunted by demons he can never outrun.
Anyway that's enough about the dog. Grab a cold one, sit back and enjoy.
Apologies for the bad faux Carribean accent - it just sort of happens when you do this sort of tune no matter how much you try to avoid it so I just went with it.
Day's about as hot as it can be
Sun burning like an incendiary
And I'm sitting underneath this tree
Like a lazy man
Got a lot of tricky jobs to
Put them all to the back of my queue
Cos I'm putting my effort into
Being a lazy man
A lazy man don't worry about the details
But he still gets by
He just hopes that life will somehow sort itself out
And he does just fine
Playlist rocking on my Boom 3*
Ice cold bottle of Peroni**
How hard can life be
As a lazy man?
Well the lazy life don't come free
Don't be glamoured by what you see
I worked 45 years just to be
A lazy man
Just to be a lazy man
