OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
We're busy doing nothing, working the whole day through
Trying to find lots of things not to do
We're busy going nowhere, isn't it just a crime?
We'd like to be unhappy but, we never do have the time!

All four ladies promenade once inside the ring
Get back home and swing and promenade with him
We're busy going nowhere, isn't it just a crime?
We'd like to be unhappy but we never do have the time!


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The head two couples you promenade a halfway 'round you go
Walk right in square thru 4 'round you know
All the way around and then you do a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, star thru
Square thru 3 hands walking around and then
Swing your corner girl and you promenade the ring
We're busy going nowhere, isn't it just a crime?
We'd like to be unhappy but we never do have the time!


TAG

Swing your girl
We'd like to be unhappy but, we never do have
We never do have, we never do have, we never do have the time!

Busy Doing Nothing

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy goin' nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to watch the river
To see that it doesn't stop
And stick around the rosebuds
So they'll know when to pop
And keep the crickets cheerful
They're really a solemn bunch
Hustle, bustle
And only an hour for lunch

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy goin' nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to wake the Sun up
He's liable to sleep all day
And then inspect the rainbows
So they'll be bright and gay
I must rehearse the songbirds
To see that they sing in key
Hustle, bustle
And never a moment free

We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy going nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to meet a turtle
I'm teachin' him how to swim
Then I have to shine the dewdrops
You know they're looking rather dim
I told my friend, the robin
I'd buy him a brand new vest
Hustle, bustle
We never do have
We never do have
We never do, never do
Never do, never do, never do have the time
Never do have the time

Composed by Jimmy Van Heusen.
Lyrics by Johnny Burke.
Recorded by Bing Crosby, William Bendix and Cedric Hardwicke.
