Lyrics:

Wake me up and out of my bed
Drag me 'round by the hair on my head
Pick me up, make sure I'm not dead
And get me movin'

Help me out I'm stuck in a rut
I'm spinnin' 'round when I should be going up
I'm beginning to think there's more now than luck
To get things movin'

I don't want to work
Have to slave all day
It's not good for me
Yesterday's news today

Peel me off this living room couch
Prop me up make sure I don't slouch
Dress me up and take me on out
And we'll get movin'

I try to catch up but the days fly so fast
I gaze at my watch but the time to fix it has passed
No matter what line I'm in I'm always last
And it's not movin'

I don't want to work
Same thing every day
I would rather play
Yesterday's news today

Shut me down and lay me to bed
Make a list of things to do off the top of my head
Which won't be much used to me if I awake to find me dead
So much for movin'

I don't want to work
I just want to play
It's not good for me
Yesterday's news today

Wake me up and out of my bed (I don't want to work)
Drag me 'round by the hair on my head (I would rather play)
Pick me up, make sure I'm not dead (I don't mind living)
And get me movin' (Yesterday's news today)

Shut me down and lay me to bed (I don't want to work)
Make a list of things to do off the top of my head (Have to slave all day)
Which won't be much used to me if I awake to find me dead (I don't mind living)
So much for movin' (Yesterday's news today)

Song Notes:

The musician's anthem! This song hits on a Beatnik Turtle theme about not wanting to work (see our first RPM album: All In A Day's Work). Instead, all you want to do is bang on the drums all day. And yet, work, life, and the inevitable day job calls...
