Song Lyrics

(Sung by The Tramp)

I`m sitting by the side of a river

Underneath the pale blue sky

I`ve got no need to worry, I`m in no hurry

I`m looking at the world go by.

Just sitting in the midday sun,

Just soaking up that currant bun,

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun.

Everybody say I`m lazy

They all tell me get a job you slob,

I`d rather be a hobo walking round with nothing

Than a rich man scared of losing all he`s got.

So I`m just sitting in the midday sun

Just soaking up that currant bun,

Why should I have to give my reasons

For sitting in the midday sun

Oh look at all the ladies

Looking their best in their summer dresses,

Oh sitting in the sun.

I`ve got no home,

I`ve got no money

But who needs a job when it`s sunny. Wah Wah.

I haven`t got a steady occupation

And I can`t afford a telephone.

I haven`t got a stereo, radio or video

A mortgage, overdraft, a bank loan.

The only way that I can get my fun

Is by sitting in the midday sun

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun.

Oh listen to the people,

Say I`m a failure and I`ve got nothing,

Ah but if they would only see

I`ve got my pride,

I`ve got no money,

But who needs a job when it`s sunny. Wah Wah.

Everybody thinks I`m crazy,

And everybody says I`m dumb,

But when I see the people shouting at each other

I`d rather be an out of work bum.

So I`m just sitting in the midday sun

Just soaking up that currant bun,

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun.
