Verse:
I like la -zy weath -er, I like la -zy days, Can't be blamed for hav -ing la -zy ways,
Some old la -zy ri -ver sleeps be -side my door, Whis -p'ring to the sun -lit shore.
 
Chorus:
Up a la -zy riv -er by the old mill -run, That la -zy la -zy riv -er in the noon -day sun,
Lin -ger in the shade of a kind old tree Throw a -way your trou -bles, dream a dream with me
Up a la -zy riv -er where the rob -in's song a -wakes a bright new morn -ing, We can loaf a -long,
Blue skies up a -bove, ev -'ry one's in love, Up a la -zy riv -er, how hap -py you can be,
Up a la -zy riv -er with me.
