Loafers Club

Hurrah for a lazy life
Hurrah for nothing to do
Hurrah for the ninnies who give me bread
And find me baccy too

The world is full of fools
Industrious as a bee
But I will do nothing and do it well
And that’s enough for me

Loaf, Loaf, Loaf,

In the winter or the summer bright
And loaf, loaf, loaf,
From Sunday to Saturday night
Smoke tucker and sleep

Sleep tucker and smoke
So long as I have those
I’ll take very good care
Not to work a single stroke
