    "Busy Doing Nothing" Lyrics

    Bing Crosby

    La-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    We're busy doin' nothin'
    Workin' the whole day through
    Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
    We're busy goin' nowhere
    Isn't it just a crime
    We'd like to be unhappy, but
    We never do have the time


    I have to watch the river
    To see that it doesn't stop
    And stick around the rosebuds
    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

    La-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    We're busy doin' nothin'
    Workin' the whole day through
    Tryin' to find lots of things not to do

    We're busy goin' nowhere
    Isn't it just a crime
    We'd like to be unhappy, but
    We never do have the time

    I have to wake 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
    Hustle, bustle
    And never a moment free

    We're busy doin' nothin'
    Workin' the whole day through
    Tryin' 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

    I have to meet a turtle
    I'm teachin' him how to swim
    Then I have to shine the dewdrops
    You know they're looking rather dim
    I told my friend, the robin
    I'd buy him a brand new vest
    Hustle, bustle
    We never do have
    We never do have
    We never do, never do
    Never do, never do, never do have the time
    Never do have the time
