Justine: "I have a friend who's a bit of an underachiever. She's beautiful, intelligent, and gifted - but she can't get out of bed. She'd rather do nothing than something imperfect."


i'd work very hard but i'm lazy
i can't take the pressure and it's starting to show
in my heart you know how it pains me
a life of leisure is no life you know

waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
oh oh i think you should know
make a cup of tea and put a record on

i'd work very hard but i'm lazy
i've got a lot of songs but they're all in my head
i'll get a guitar and a lover who pays me
if i can't be a star i won't get out of bed

waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
oh oh i think you should know
make a cup of tea and put a record on

waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
waking up and getting up has never been easy
oh oh i think you should know
oh oh i think you should know
make a cup of tea and put a record on
