Be Lazy or Live a Little – MMMM

in Monday's Music Moves Me,Music Monday

Crazy weekend we had.  Mother Nature was in her psycho element, which seems par for the course for her this year – while we had torrential downpours and tornado warnings (unusual for our area here in PA) with branches flying off trees, my sister in Iowa was flabbergasted at the snow they were getting after hitting 80-degree temps earlier in the week.  Mother Nature doesn’t seem to know up from down lately.

To that end, I decided to pick two polar-opposite songs for this week, just because.  Have you ever had one of those days where you don’t feel like doing anything?  I love the new Bruno Mars song that outlines just that:

The Lazy Song Lyrics
Bruno Mars

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything
I Just Wanna Lay In My Bed
Don’t Feel Like Pickin’ Up My Phone
So Leave A Message At The Tone
‘Cause Today I swear I’m Not Doin’ Anythin’

I’m Gonna Kick My Feet Up
Then Stare At The Fan
Turn The TV On
Throw My Hand In My Pants
Nobody’s Gon’ Tell Me I Can’t

I’ll Be Lounging On The Couch, Jus’ Chillin In My Snuggie
Click To MTV So They Can Teach Me Howda Dougie
Cause In My Castle I’m The Freakin’ Man
Oh Oh

Yes I Said It
I Said It
I Said It ‘Cause I Can

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything
I Just Wanna Lay In My Bed
Don’t Feel Like Pickin’ Up My Phone
So Leave A Message At The Tone
‘Cause Today I Swear I’m Not Doin’ Anythin’
Nothin’ At All

Woo Hoo Ooh
Woo Hoo Ooh Ooooh Ooh Ooh

Nothin’ At All

Woo Hoo Ooh
Woo Hoo Ooh Ooooh Ooh Ooh

Tomorrow I’ll Wake Up Do Some P90X
Meet A Really Nice Girl Have Some Really Nice Sex
She’s Gonna Scream Out “This Is Great!” (Oh My God! This Is Great!)

Yeah

I Might Mess Around, and Get My Collage Degree
I Bet My Old Man Would Be So Prouda Me

But Sorry Pops You’ll Just Have To Wait
Oh Oh

Yes I Said It
I Said It
I Said It ‘Cause I Can

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything
I Just Wanna Lay In My Bed
Don’t Feel Like Pickin’ Up My Phone
So Leave A Message At The Tone
‘Cause Today I swear I’m Not Doin’ Anythin’

No I Ain’t Gonna Comb My Hair
‘Cause I Ain’t Goin’ Anywhere
No No No No No No No No No
Ohhh

I’ll Just Strut In My Birthday Suit
And Let Everything Hang Loose
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Yes I Said It
I Said It
I Said It ‘Cause I Can

Today I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything
I Just Wanna Lay In My Bed
Don’t Feel Like Pickin’ Up My Phone
So Leave A Message At The Tone
‘Cause Today I swear I’m Not Doin’ Anythin’
Nothin’ At All

Woo Hoo Ooh
Woo Hoo Ooh Ooooh Ooh Ooh

Nothin’ At All

Woo Hoo Ooh
Woo Hoo Ooh Ooooh Ooh Ooh

.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have Kenny Chesney encouraging us to live a little:

Live a Little Lyrics
Kenny Chesney

Stressed out, running late, racing down the interstate
Spilled hot coffee, down the front of my jeans
It’s work, work, pay the rent, money and my time’s spent
Not a minute left for me to be me

Been going like nothing can wait
I gotta get my priorities straight

I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot

Friday night, here we go, do a little do-si-do
Kick back, have a laugh, catch my breath
Tell the band slow it down, there she is, think I found
Maybe Ms. Wonderful, I haven’t met yet

It just hit me like a wrecking ball
She’s giving me a wake up call

I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot

Step back, smell the rose
Feel the sand between your toes
Unplug, unwind
Step out in the sunshine

I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little

I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Take the girl, get a map and pick any old dot
Live a little, we need to live a little, love a lot

Be lazy or live a little – whatever floats your boat.  But whatever you do, enjoy your Monday!

I do have days which I really don’t wish to do anything but just stone away..unfortunately this is never possible with the kids around. Hope you had a great monday.

2 ellie too April 18, 2011 at 3:32 am

I heard the Bruno song for the first time ever yesterday. Love the coincidence of it!

The weather has been wacky here too. Spring. It. Will. Come.

3 SueAnn April 18, 2011 at 4:36 am

Great song choices!! Ha!! I have had days when I decide I am not going to do anything and then I spot those things that need to be done and…and…well…you know! The doing nothing gets hijacked for sure!! Ha!!
Wacky weather here too…super super high winds!! And cold cold mornings! With beautiful sunshine in the afternoons. But these winds are killer!!
Wild!!!
Hugs

In London for a fine change the weather has been beautiful all weekend, sun was and still is shining bright. Miracles do happen!

Tornados suck! I hope the weather clears up for you soon! I had never heard the new Bruno Mars song! Too funny! I like it and love the video too! Oh and I like a little Chesney every once in a while too! Great choices!

12 Run DMT April 18, 2011 at 10:19 am

That is EXACTLY how I feel today. I don’t feel doing anything, except for laundry. It’s a lazy laundry day. Bleh. Mother Nature has stirred up some really awful stuff around here and my allergies are KICKING! UGH! It’s awful.

Loved both your picks today. Thanks for stopping by for MM and for the plug, mama. :-)

24 Cathy Kennedy April 18, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Gee, do I ever understand about not wanting to do things on any given day. I really didn’t want to do anything today, too. However, I FORCED myself to get into the groove and come up with my posts. I love the MMM a lot and just didn’t want to miss out on the fun. I’m glad I made myself.

Oh, we had some really wild weather on Friday. Heavens, it rained so hard all night long and then the weather turned cold. It felt like Blackberry winter on Saturday with temps in the mid-40s and then on Sunday temps were in the low 70s. Crazy, huh?

25 Lainy April 18, 2011 at 7:36 pm

I just love Bruno!

HAPPY MM!

26 Nicole April 18, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Two very good songs, i think I should break out the ipod and take a jog!

27 julianna April 18, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Favorite lazy day song…

“aint in no hurry” by Zac Brown Band.

28 Amethyst Moon April 18, 2011 at 9:48 pm

Bruno Mars was a new one for me. I liked it! I think I need to watch MTV so they can teach me howda Dougie ;) and how can you not like Kenny?!

29 Con Artist Trickster April 18, 2011 at 11:05 pm

Interesting set of songs. And what a coincidence, laziness is kinda part of my MM choice too this week.
Happy MM!

First song is fun, fun, fun. What a goofy guy. I guess that’s what makes it so interesting!

31 XmasDolly April 19, 2011 at 12:28 am

That song is a bit beneath Bruno Mars don’t you think? I mean it’s okay, but… need I say more, and Chesney well hey… he’s just great period. ~hehehe~ So, you say you got confused on the theme huh? What? It’s just a couple of songs with you telling your FRIENDS be lazy or live a little choice is up to you! You go girl! Thanks for playing along and see ya next week! HAPPY EASTER almost!

32 Heather April 19, 2011 at 12:38 am

I hadn’t heard the first song til I just watched it. But I like Bruno Marz and that was pretty catchy and funny too. Gonna show my husband. And of course I love Kenny Chesney and love the second song too. We have the same taste in music!

I am a new follower from the Mingle Monday Blog hop. I’d love for you to check my blog out sometime. Have a great evening!

I’ve never heard of Bruno Mars, but that song is really cute and I have actually done that on a few days.
Of course, Kenny Chesney is fabulous. I have never heard that song, but I loved it.
Hope you had a great week, as you can tell, I have had a truly busy one. HaHa
