The Lyrics

So, yeah, I'm lazy.
Everybody's doing the big things, setting goals,
Some are beating world records,
By vaulting over them poles,
Everybody's up in arms,
Every night and day,
But when Quinn the Layabout gets here,
Everybody's going to settle down,
Come see me sleep, I'm sleeping in,
You've not seen nothing like the Ryan Quinn,

I like to get up nearing noon, and order Chinese food,
But making plans and taking haste,
It just don't suit me good,
I'm all sprawled out in the sun,
Eating popcorn from the bag,
But when Quinn the Layabout gets here,
I'm not moving until half past ten,
Come see me eat, I'm getting thin,
You've not seen nothing like the Ryan Quinn,

My cat's napping and my dog too, I must envy them all,
Just tell me when I work please, honey,
And gravely sick I'll call,
Now I just can't get no sleep,
I've slept way too long for sure,
But when Quinn the Layabout gets here,
Everybody's going to want to doze,
Come see my bed, the one I'm in,
You've not seen nothing like the Ryan Quinn.

Well, at least you had enough get-up-and-go to write this clever parody!

Pacing is off but, it's a good concept.

I've not seen nothing like you? That's because I'm too lazy to get up and look for it. My mirror is all... the way... over... there!

I wish i was a cat as well! I didn't really see what was wrong with the pacing, but maybe i just don't know the song well enough. Well done. 555
