I Don't Feel Like Writin' (The Procrastination Song)

 (To the tune of ''I Don't Feel Like Dancin''' by the Scissor Sisters)

Wake up in the morning with my head sayin', Get it done!

I've got the perfect story - I don't need another one.

Ideas in my notebooks, (I've got six) so write it down

So how come I feel so lazy, and that makes me just frown?

 

So I sit on down and my laptop's ready to go.

Today's the day I'm gonna get it right.

You better know, whether fine or rain or snow,

I'm gonna get stuck in and start to write.

 

But I don't feel like writin' when the internet's okay.

Explorer's on the screen and I'd really rather play.

You think that I could easily muster up a line or two today,

But I don't feel like writin', no sir, no writin',  no way.

 

Don't feel like writin', writin'

When I can find somethin' better to do

Don't feel like writin', writin'

I'd prefer just to make me a brew.

Don't feel like writin', writin'

Rather be watching repeats of ''Have I Got News for You-oo-oo.''

 

Stories come and stories go, just like they always will

But all I do is change them round so they can fit the bill

I've got so many plotlines it'd make a reader so confused,

So why can't I just write them when I've got nothin' to lose?

 

So I'll just pretend till it drives me round the bend

I'm gonna write them when I have the time.

Please understand, though I have time on my hands

When I do, I'm sure it will be fine.

 

But I don't feel like writin' when there are phone calls to make

I'll just sit down and chat, maybe have some tea and cake.

You'd think that I could manage one small sentence, for goodness sake?

But I don't feel like writin', no sir, big, big, big mistake.

 

Don't feel like writin', writin'

When I can find somethin better to do.

Don't feel like writin', writin'

I'd prefer just to talk to you.

Don't feel like writin', writin'

Rather have a soak in the bath, wash my hair with shampoo-oo-oo.

 

You can't make me write a word

Although I know it's so absurd

Just sit me down

And see the paragraphs become all blurred.

 

But I don't feel like writin' when Big Brother's on the box

I'll sit and watch TV, see those friendships on the rocks

You'd think that I could find a way to cure my writer's blocks,

But I don't feel like writin', no I'd rather darn some socks.

 

Don't feel like writin', writin'

When I can find somethin better to do

Don't feel like writin', writin'

I'd prefer just to sit and feel blue

Don't feel like writin', writin'

If I put it off long enough I'll believe it's true-oo-oo!

The End
