8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of F.
I like lazy weather, I like lazy days, Can't be blamed for having lazy ways,
Some old lazy river sleeps beside my door, Whisp'ring to the sunlit shore.
Up a lazy river by the old millrun, That lazy lazy river in the noonday sun,
Linger in the shade of a kind old tree Throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me
Up a lazy river where the robin's song awakes a bright new morning, We can loaf along,
Blue skies up above, ev'ry one's in love, Up a lazy river, how happy you can be,
Up a lazy river with me.
