Charlie was lazy, as lazy can be
Loved to dawdle about the town
But Harley would have no part of it
She always thought Charlie a clown

Still, he didn’t care what Harley thought
He enjoyed doing nothing all day
Lollygagging, was his favorite sport
Yes, of course, it was Charlie’s forte

Harley decided she’d fix him good
Lit a fire, right there, in the street
Charlie took off, like a bat out of hell
The flames catching on to his seat

And that was the end of his lazy days
He would run, every time he saw Harley
Never again, would he let time waste away
Staying idle, was no longer for Charlie
