Words by Johnny Mercer, music by Hoagy Carmichael 1933.  The story is that Mercer saw Hoagy snoozin’ on his couch and said, “I’m gonna write a song called ‘Lazy Bones’.” Carmichael said, “Well, let’s get at it.”  Johnny said the first line, Hoagy started playing a melody on piano, and the song was finished in twenty minutes.
