Bruno Mars The Lazy Song

Bruno Mars The Lazy Song

“The Lazy Song” is a song by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars for his debut studio album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010). It was serviced to contemporary hit radios in the United States on February 15, 2011 as the album’s third single by Atlantic and Elektra. Development of “The Lazy Song” began while Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine were hanging around the studio and didn’t feel like working. The trio, produced the track under their alias, the Smeezingtons, and wrote the song in collaboration with singer-songwriter K’naan. Musically, “The Lazy Song” has been described as borrowing “heavily from roots reggae” and has been compared to the reggae style of Jason Mraz, while lyrically it is an anthem to laziness.

“The Lazy Song” reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, while it topped the charts in Denmark and in the United Kingdom. It charted on most markets within the top five. Cameron Duddy and Mars directed the accompanying music video, in which Mars hangs out with five dancers with monkey masks while jest around in his underwear. It was certified seven times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), five times by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and four times by Music Canada (MC), respectively. It was one of the best selling digital singles of 2011 with sales of 6.5 million copies. Mars sang “The Lazy Song” on the television show American Idol and performed it during The Doo-Wops & Hooligans Tour (2010–12), the Hooligans in Wondaland Tour (2011), and occasionally on The Moonshine Jungle Tour (2013–14).

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Today, I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
‘Cause today, I swear, I’m not doing anything

[Verse 1]
I’m gonna kick my feet up, then stare at the fan
Turn the TV on, throw my hand in my pants
Nobody’s gonna tell me I can’t, nah
I’ll be lounging on the couch, just chillin’ in my Snuggie
Click to MTV, so they can teach me how to dougie
‘Cause in my castle, I’m the freaking man

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh, yes, I said it
I said it, I said it, ’cause I can

[Chorus]
Today, I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
‘Cause today, I swear, I’m not doing anything
Nothing at all (Woo-hoo, woo-hoo, ooh)
Nothing at all (Woo-hoo, woo-hoo, ooh)

[Verse 2]
Tomorrow, I’ll wake up, do some P90X
Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice sex
And she’s gonna scream out, “This is great!” (Oh my God, this is great)
Yeah, I might mess around and get my college degree
I bet my old man will be so proud of me
But sorry pops, you’ll just have to wait

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh-oh, yes I said it
I said it, I said it, ’cause I can

[Chorus]
Today, I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
‘Cause today, I swear, I’m not doing anything

[Bridge]
No, I ain’t gonna comb my hair
‘Cause I ain’t going anywhere
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I’ll just strut in my birthday suit
And let everything hang loose
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
Oh, today, I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
‘Cause today, I swear, I’m not doing anything
Nothing at all (Woo-hoo, woo-hoo, ooh)
Nothing at all (Woo-hoo, woo-hoo, ooh)
Nothing at all
