Freakin Lazy A$$

If I wasn't such a lazy ass, I might be rich and fame-ass
I coulda been a superstar with just a pinch of initiative
Don't be like me near 53, a spinning tornado of devastation
If only I had the determination I found in poetic inspiration
Wealth and opulence would roll off my flesh like sweat in a steam room
Or perhaps the tiny feet of scorpions racing for my toes at high noon
Wanting to drain me of every last penny saved and earned, if I ever had any
But like all of my naughty lovers, there weren't very many
Because for me, chasing pennies never leads to money
And the joke on me, though laughable, never was that funny
