Deep Purple - ''Lazy'' (Studio Version)



"Lazy" is a song by Deep Purple from their 1972 album Machine Head. A live performance of the song can be found on the album Made in Japan, released later the same year.


The song starts out as an instrumental, keyboardist Jon Lord plays an overdriven Hammond organ intro, followed by the main riff and with the solo swapping between him and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. Vocalist Ian Gillan comes in with the vocals later in the song. He also uses harmonica both on the studio version and live. At over 7 minutes long, it is the longest track on the album, and live versions were often extended past 10 minutes.



Lyrics



Lazy just stay in bed

You're lazy just stay in bed

You don't want no money

You don't want no bread


If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw, no

If you're drowning you don't clutch no straw

You don't want to live you don't want to cry no more


Well my trying ain't done no good

I said my trying ain't done no good

You don't make no effort no not like you should


Lazy you just stay in bed

Lazy you just stay in bed

You don't want no money

You don't want no bread



Songwriters: Ian Gillan / Ian Paice / Jon Lord / Ritchie Blackmore / Roger Glover
