Who would have thought all those years ago that this clip would have inspired my enduring philosophy and life style !


As performed in the film
"A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court":

ALL:
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la


ALL:
We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy goin' nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time


CEDRIC HARDWICKE:
I have to watch the river
To see that it doesn't stop
And stick around the rosebuds
So they'll know when to pop
BING CROSBY:
Better keep the crickets cheerful
They're really a solemn bunch
ALL:
Hustle, bustle
WILLIAM BENDIX:
And only an hour for lunch


ALL:
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la


(CROSBY: Ah! Shall we procede?)


ALL:
We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy going nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time


BENDIX:
I have to wake the Sun up
He's liable to sleep all day
(CROSBY: Taroo)
And then inspect the rainbows
So they'll be bright and gay
CROSBY & HARDWICKE:
You must rehearse the songbirds
To see that they sing in key
(BENDIX: If you insist)
(CROSBY: I dust, I dust)
ALL:
Hustle, bustle
And never a moment free


ALL:
We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy going nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time


(CROSBY: Going to the game?)


CROSBY:
I have to meet a turtle
I'm teachin' him how to swim
Then I have to shine the dewdrops
You know they're looking rather dim
(BENDIX: No!)
I told my friend, the robin
I'd buy him a brand new vest
ALL:
Hustle, bustle
CROSBY:
I wish I could take a rest


BENDIX:
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
HARDWICKE:
Isn't it just a crime
CROSBY:
We'd better make it snappy
There's another hill to climb
ALL:
We'd like to be unhappy, but
CROSBY:
We never do have
HARDWICKE: We never do have
BENDIX: We never do, never do
ALL:
Never do, never do, never do have the time
Never do have the time
