Sloth Lyrics

Artist: Marianne Faithfull
Album: The Seven Deadly Sins

FAMILY

Will she now ? ... will our Anna pull herself together ?
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
For she was always quite a one for an armchair;
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
Unless you came and hauled her off the mattress
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
The Lazy slug would lie in bed all morning.
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)

Otherwise, Anna is, we must admit, a most respectful child.
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
Did what she was told and showed affection for her parents.
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
This is what we told her when she left home:
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)
"Think of us, and mind you keep your nose down to the grindstone."
(Lazy Bones are for the Devil's stockpot€”)

O Lord, look down upon our daughter,
Show her the way that leads the Good to Thy reward,
In all her doings preserve her and comfort her,
Incline her heart to observe all Thy commandments
That her works on earth may prosper.
