(Words and Music by: Richard Carpenter & John Bettis)


Get me away from all the things that need doin'
Lazily here to lose the afternoon
Lyin' around here on the ground 
is as close to gettin' up as I can go.

Takin' the chance to free myself from my worries
Cover them well enough and no one sees
Nobody knows until they show 
and the only thing to do is try to cover them again.

Hurry yourself,
What's the use,
Mountains of wealth I refuse to be somebody's slave for a dime.
I've got plenty of mountains I'm lookin' to climb spendin' my time.

Pleasein' myself is all that really needs doin'
Ev'ry thing else begins but never ends
Listen to me and you'll agree 
that a man is better off if he has come to realize.

Hurry yourself,
What's the use,
Mountains of wealth I refuse to be somebody's slave for a dime.
I've got plenty of mountains I'm lookin' to climb spendin' my time.
