In the spring of 2001 David Byrne recorded the lyrics for X-Press 2's song "Lazy". About a year later, Skint records released the song as the first single from the X-Press 2 album "Muzikizum". In a recent interview, David said about the song "I love the contradiction of a pumpin dance track that is called 'Lazy'".

Promo copies feature remixes by Fatboy Slim and Midfield General, with several others to follow.

David Byrne does not star in the promo video. "Lazy" is available on X-Press 2's album 'Muzikizum '.

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?

I'm lazy when I'm lovin', I'm lazy when I play
I'm lazy with my girlfriend a thousand times a day
I'm lazy when I'm speaking, I'm lazy when I walk
I'm lazy when I'm dancin' and I'm lazy when I talk

I open up my mouth, air comes rushin' out
Nothin', doin' nadda, never, how you like me now?
Wouldn't it be mad, wouldn't it be fine
lazy, lucky lady, dancin', lovin' all the time

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?

 

Some folks they got money an' some folks lives are sweet
Some folks make decisions an' some folks clean the streets, now
Imagine what it feels like, imagine how it sounds
Imagine life is perfect an' everything works out

No tears are fallin' from my eyes
I'm keepin' all the pain inside
Now don't you wanna live with me?
I'm lazy as a man can be!

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?

 

Imagine there's a girlfriend, imagine there's a job
Imagine there's an answer, imagine there's a God
Imagine I'm a Devil, imagine I'm a Saint
Lazy money, lazy sexy, lazy outta space!

No tears are fallin' from my eyes
I'm keepin' all the pain inside
Now don't you wanna live with me?
I'm lazy as a man can be!

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?

Lazy when I work, lazy on the bed
Screamin' all you like, but it only fades away
I'm lazy when I'm prayin', lazy on the job
Got a lazy mind, a lazy eye, a lazy lazy father

Hard men, hard lives
Hard keepin' it all inside
Good times, good God
I'm so lazy I almost stop!

*cough*

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?

I-I-I-I'm wicked and I'm lazy
Ooooh, don't you wanna save me?
