Get Ready World!

I Woke Up

Lying around all day doing nothing

Is beginning to drive me crazy

I guess it's better doing things

Than just lying around being lazy.

I've finally made up my mind to

Quit letting grass grow under my feet

I'd thought about doing this before

But always turned over and went back to sleep.

Lots of nice things are waiting for me

But I can't get them sleeping all the time

Wished I'd realized this long before now

I'm going to work and I'm going to be fine.

Get ready world! I woke up.
