Busy Doin' Nothing lyrics


(VM&MM) WE'RE BUSY DOING NOTHING,
WORKING THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
TRYING TO FIND LOTS OF THINGS,
NOT TO DO.
WE'RE BUSY GOING NOWHERE,
ISN'T IT JUST A CRIME?
WE'D LIKE TO BE UNHAPPY,
BUT WE NEVER DO HAVE THE TIME.

VM I HAVE TO WATCH THE RIVER,
TO SEE THAT IT DOESN'T STOP.
AND STICK AROUND THE ROSE BUDS,
SO THEY'LL KNOW WHEN TO POP.
AND KEEP THE CRICKETS CHEERFUL,
THEY'RE REALLY A SOLEMN BUNCH.
HUSTLE, BUSTLE,
AND ONLY AN HOUR FOR LUNCH.

MM WE'RE BUSY DOING NOTHING,
WORKING THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
TRYING TO FIND LOTS OF THINGS
NOT TO DO.
WE'RE BUSY GOING NOWHERE,
ISN'T IT JUST A CRIME?
WE'D LIKE TO BE UNHAPPY,
BUT WE NEVER DO HAVE THE TIME.

VM I HAVE TO WATCH THE SUN UP,
HE'S LIABLE TO SLEEP ALL DAY.
AND THEN INSPECT THE RAINBOWS,
SO THEY'LL BE BRIGHT AND GAY.
I MUST REHEARSE THE SONGBIRDS,
TO SEE THAT THEY SING IN KEY.
VM&MM HUSTLE,BUSTLE, AND NEVER A MOMENT FREE.

ORCHESTRA PLAYS A SECTION ON ITS OWN

VM WE'RE BUSY DOING NOTHING,
WORKING THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
MM TRYING TO FIND LOTS OF THINGS NOT TO DO.
VM WE'RE BUSY GOING NOWHERE,
ISN'T IT JUST A CRIME?
MM WE'D LIKE TO BE UNHAPPY,
BUT WE NEVER DO HAVE THE TIME.

VM I HAVE TO MEET A TURTLE,
I'M TEACHIN' HIM HOW TO SWIM.
I HAVE TO SHINE THE DEW DROPS,
THEY'RE LOOKING RATHER DIM.
I TOLD MY FRIEND THE ROBIN,
I'D BUY HIM A BRAND NEW VEST.
VM&MM HUSTLE, BUSTLE,
I WISH I COULD TAKE A REST.

VM&MM WE'RE BUSY DOIN' NOTHING,
WORKING THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
TRYING TO FIND LOTS OF THINGS
NOT TO DO.
WE'RE BUSY GOING NOWHERE,
ISN'T IT JUST A CRIME?
WE'D BETTER MAKE IT SNAPPY,
THERE'S ANOTHER HILL TO CLIMB.
VM WE'D LIKE TO BE UNHAPPY,
BUT WE NEVER DO HAVE THE TIME.

VM NO,
VM&MM WE NEVER, WE NEVER, WE NEVER, WE NEVER,
WE NEVER
DO HAVE THE TIME.
