Lyrics:
In all the world of things to be
I got a garden hose and a colour tv
I got time on my hands
I got time on my hands
Nobody cares what I do!

In all the world of things to do
I got a burnt orange peel and a potato stew
I got work to get done
Got work to get done
Nobody knows where to run!

I've got a quart of milk
Got some sound advice
Got some trees that are fake
But they smell so nice
Don't give me the flu!
Nobody knows why we puke!

Back and forth, I dodge a fly
Like a feather in the sky
Write me out a check
Give me all your cash
Nobody knows!
So just go home!
 
The Song:

This is on One Foot In The Grave.
