Busy Doing Nothing by Peter And Gordon
We're busy doing nothing, working all day through,
We're trying to find lots of things not to do.
We're busy going nowhere, isn't it such a crime ?
We'd like to be unhappy but we never do have the time.
I have to watch the river to see that it doesn't stop,
And stick around the rosebuds so they'll know when to pop.
Better keep those crickets cheerful,they're really a solemn bunch,
Farso, farso. I never have the time for lunch.
I'd like to meet a turtle, and teach him how to swim,
Then I have to shine the dew-drops, they're looking rather dim.
Meet my friend the robin and buy him a brand new vest.
Farso, farso, I never have time to rest.
