  • I woke up late today
    Actually I do that everyday
    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 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 queen 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 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 asunder
    By these things that I know that nobody else knows
    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 lost time
    Oh my God – if I was somebody you'd be kissing my arse right now
    But I'm so polite – I do this all of the time
    I missed my calling in life

    And you, must be having a laugh
    Oh God – you're having a laugh
    No point in worrying if my day's a disaster
    Inside my little head I'm happy ever after
    Yes I am

    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 missed my calling in life

    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 this all of the time
    I missed my calling in life
    Oooh – what of my life?
    Yeah well.
