The day is made for working 
For scrubbing floors and clerking 
Is this the time for shirking? 
Yes, yes, yes 
We'll go where trees are fruity 
And study nature beauty 
Will we neglect our duty? 
Yes, yes, yes 


Nothing to do but relax 
'Neath the eucalyptus tree 
Flat on our beautiful backs 
Healthy and dumb 
Warm days are nice enough 
Summer has come 
And we'll Bring ice enough 
For our rum 
Nothing to do but make love 
Two demented butterflies 
Time with the flutter flies 
While et bee make wax
And we have nothing to do but relax
