lyrics

Chorus

I’m not going to waste my time or yours
Get up, stand up or get down on all fours
Don’t rest on your laurels; I’m not resting on mine
Forget all your quarrels make sure everything’s fine

Verse 1

Go read a book
Go take a walk
Don’t listen to the same thing all over again
Get a Ritalin prescription
Get a real job
Visit your grandmother and then book a holiday
Watch public television
Watch yourself
If you talk too much sometimes it scares people
Do something important
Do today’s crossword
Listen to what’s outside your window everyday

Be your childhood dream
Be your worst nightmare
Do everything before it is tedious and bothersome.
Laugh until you throw up
Laugh with the weirdo’s
Don’t just sit there and think about what you could have done
Fall off a cliff
Fall hopelessly in love
Fret over the minute details of everything
Drink a big cup of tea
Drink yourself silly
And help your dad out once in a while

Chorus

I’m not going to waste my time or yours
Get up, stand up or get down on all fours
Don’t rest on your laurels; I’m not resting on mine
Forget all your quarrels make sure everything’s fine

Verse 2

Wear something ridiculous
Wear shame in defeat
Treading on toes needs big shoes to fill
Copy the person next to you
Copyright material
Bang the drum 3 times and turn to the left
Listen up smart arse
Listen to Mozart
It makes you 10% smarter in an IQ test
Cut the cord on the trap
Cut out the junk food
Keep every piece of paper you write something witty on

Collect those bonus points
Collected from the airport
Take care of the things that will take care of you
Talk to people you don’t know
Talk only when spoken to
The grieving process is needed for survival
Clean your computer
Clean your filthy mouth
I like you better when you smile and tell jokes
Make me a banana cake
Make my day
And stop your stressing about none of the above

Chorus

I’m not going to waste my time or yours
Get up, stand up or get down on all fours
Don’t rest on your laurels; I’m not resting on mine
Forget all your quarrels make sure everything’s fine

Verse 3

Turn up the treble
Turn down that racket
Walk through puddles and dark alleyways
Use the hand towel
Use all of your avenues
Stare at the person who might stare right back
Watch the old movies
Watch listen and learn
List your favourite songs and remember them by heart
Stay like a kid
Stay here tonight
Help me with my homework it was only due yesterday

Hear those frequencies?
Hear your name being called
Converge like a pack of vultures on a hot day
Feast after midnight
Feast on this sucker
Visit the country that you only ever read about
Never tell an in joke
Never feed an animal
Call your old partner and tell them what you think of them
Tape that film clip
Tape your own voice
Then play it back and make sure you be yourself

Chorus

I’m not going to waste my time or yours
Get up, stand up or get down on all fours
Don’t rest on your laurels; I’m not resting on mine
Forget all your quarrels make sure everything’s fine
