I woke up late today
Actually I do that eveyday
Got no place to be seen
I'm not part of a scene
I'm a genius loser
Keeping counsel with my own opinion
President of the state that I'm in
Should I just stay in bed?
Should I live in my head?
Oh god so many a=questions to ask

Oh you could call me lazy
I think of it as taking my time
Cos I don't want to do what I don't want to do
I'm the question refusenik

but, oh my god
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time
Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

Day by day I wonder
If I will be torn a asunder
By these things that I know
That nobody else knoes
Or maybe it's the drinking
I guess we should consult a Bible
Everybody needs a sign
Or bless the birds and the bees
The flowers and trees
And blessed be the slacker

but, oh my god
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time
Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

You must be having a laugh
Oh god your having a laugh
No point in worrying if my days are a disaster
Inside my little head I'm happy ever after
Yes I am

but, oh my god
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for the lost time
Oh my god, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

But, oh my god
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my god, if i was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite, I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Ohh... What am I like
Yes I am
