The Lazy Song
Bruno Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

Uh, 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, no

I'll be lounging on the couch, just chillin' in my Snuggie
Click to MTV so they can teach me how to Dougie
'Cause in my castle I'm the freaking man

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 picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

Nothing at all
Woo, ooh, woo, ooh, ooh
Nothing at all
Woo, ooh, woo, ooh, ooh

Tomorrow I'll wake up, do some P90X
Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice sex
And she's gonna scream out "This is great"
(Oh my God, this is great) Yeah

I might mess around and get my college degree
I bet my old man will be so proud of me
But sorry, pops, you'll just have to wait

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 picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything

No, I ain't gonna comb my hair
'Cause I ain't goin' anywhere
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, oh

I'll just strut in my birthday suit
And let everything hang loose
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything
Nothing at all

Woo, ooh, woo, ooh, ooh
Nothing at all




Woo, ooh, woo, ooh, ooh
Nothing at all

Overall Meaning

Bruno Mars's "The Lazy Song" is undeniably a playful, fun-loving tune that celebrates taking a break from the hectic world and just relaxing. The lyrics convey the singer's desire to take a day off from life's responsibilities and just chill out in his bed, without caring about anything else. The song's catchy melody and humorous lyrics make it hard not to sing along to.


The opening lines of the song, "Today I don't feel like doing anything / I just wanna lay in my bed / Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone / 'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything," highlights the singer's unwillingness to do anything productive. Instead, he would rather stay in bed and skip all of his daily routines. He casually sings, "I'm gonna kick my feet up, then stare at the fan," indicating his laziness and lack of motivation. He takes pride in being the "freaking man" in his castle, doing absolutely nothing.


The second verse adds more humor to the song as Mars talks about how he plans to spend his day. He imagines meeting a really nice girl and having some really nice sex. He also talks about getting his college degree and making his old man proud but that he’ll just have to wait as he has no plans to do anything – only sit and chill.


Overall, "The Lazy Song" is a light-hearted anthem for anyone who needs a break from the daily grind. It encourages people to take a day for themselves and just relax, without feeling guilty about it.
