I Don't Work For A Living

I don't work for a living,
I get along all right without,
I don't toil all day,
I suppose it's because I'm not built that way.
Some people work for love,
They say it's all sunshine and gain,
But if I can't get sunshine without any work,
I'd rather stay out in the rain.

Bring me a nail and a hammer,
And a portrait to hang on the wall,
Bring me a strongsome ladder,
So that I won't fall,
Bring me a bottle of whiskey,
And a barrel of good strong ale,
I bet you I'll hang up that portrait,
If somebody else drives the nail. chorus
