(sung by the tramp)I’m sitting by the side of a riverUnderneath the pale blue skyI’ve got no need to worry, I’m in no hurryI’m looking at the world go by.Just sitting in the midday sun,Just soaking up that currant bun,With no particular purpose or reasonSitting in the midday sun.Everybody say I’m lazyThey all tell me get a job you slob,I’d rather be a hobo walking round with nothingThan a rich man scared of losing all he’s got.So I’m just sitting in the midday sunJust soaking up that currant bun,Why should I have to give my reasonsFor sitting in the midday sunOh look at all the ladiesLooking their best in their summer dresses,Oh sitting in the sun.I’ve got no home,I’ve got no moneyBut who needs a job when it’s sunny. wah wah.I haven’t got a steady occupationAnd I can’t afford a telephone.I haven’t got a stereo, radio or videoA mortgage, overdraft, a bank loan.The only way that I can get my funIs by sitting in the midday sunWith no particular purpose or reasonSitting 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 seeI’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 otherI’d rather be an out of work bum.So I’m just sitting in the midday sunJust soaking up that currant bun,With no particular purpose or reasonSitting in the midday sun.
