A-wouldn't it be nice to get on with me neighbours? But they make it very clear, yhey've got no room for ravers They stop me from groovin', they bang on me wall They doing me crust in, it's no good at all, ah Lazy Sunday afternoon I've got no mind to worry I close my eyes and drift away-a Here we all are sittin' in a rainbow Gor blimey, hello Mrs. Jones, how's old Bert's lumbago? (he mustn't grumble) (Tweedle-dee) I'll sing you a song with no words and no tune (twiddly-dee) To sing in your party while you souse at the moon (oh yeah) Lazy Sunday afternoon, I've got no mind to worry Close my eyes and drift away-a
Root-de-doo-de-doo, a-root-de-doot-de-doy-di A-root-de-doot-de-dum, a-ree-de-dee-de-doo-dee (doo-doo, doo-doo) There's no one to hear me, there's nothing to say And no one can stop me from feeling this way, yeah Lazy Sunday afternoon I've got no mind to worry Close my eyes and drift away Lazy Sunday afternoon I've got no mind to worry Close my eyes and drift a- Close my mind and drift away, close my eyes and drift away

Tony from Uk"To sing in your karzi while you suss out the moon" - 'karzi' is cockney slang for 'toilet'.
Max from OxfordNot 100% sure the words are 'flush out the moon', instead 'to sing in your bathroom while you suss out the moon' would fit far better into the Happiness Stan theme of the album.
Max from Oxford"Gor blimey 'allo Mrs Jones, How's your Bert's lumbago? (Now mustn't grumble...)". Who else would get away with a line like this is into a song? I suspect very few vocalists could - possibly Ian Hunter. Marriott (bless him) was a master at singing in a cod Cockney accent and this comes to the fore on "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake" where certain phrases are embellished with an exaggerated Cockney flat 'a' sound at the end of a sentence. (Pronounced as the 'a' in 'at'). Example: in 'Rene' he sings 'love is like an 'ole in the wall-a, a lineup in the warehaase, no trouble at all, and if you've got the munnee, you'll have a ball... she'll 'ave yours-a' etc.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
