From Blanche Calloway and Her Joy Boys, 1925-1935; The Chronogical Classics 783.

Some of these women, too lazy to put a button on a good man's shirt.
Some of these women, too lazy to put a button on a good man's shirt.
But they ain't too lazy to count his money Saturday night.

I know a lazy woman put ten dollars in a telephone.
I know a lazy woman put ten dollars in a telephone.
Just to tell her sweet man her monty [?] man is out and gone.

When a woman's too lazy to try to bake an apple pie,
When a woman's too lazy to try to bake an apple pie,
She's too lazy to live and she's too darn lazy to die.

I know you lazy women gonna hate me when you hear this song.
I know you lazy women gonna hate me when you hear this song.
But the truth is you lazy and I surely have to carry it on.
