Sung by Harry Lauder in 1910

"Ah-ha-ay! Ah-ha-ha-ha-ay ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha ...."

Oh I never, never worry, an I never, never grieve;
I take things very easy, but I canny take a leave;
An I work the whole week round frae early morn till late at nicht,
An oan Setterday, I eagerly look forward wi delicht ....
To beautiful Sunday, I wish it wid never come Monday
'Cause I lie between the sheets ma bed adornin.
Oh it's very nice, yes it's very very nice
To get yir breakfast in yir bed oan Sunday mornin.

"Hy-hy, Ay, hy-hy-hy-hy ... hy-hy "

What joy, what great delight it is tae hear the kirk bells ring;
I wouldn't miss their welcome sound, no not for anything;
When they commence to ring, I rise .......

"Ay, an I .. uhhuh ... an I go an have a bit squint oot of the windie."

But if I think it's goin tae rain,
I jist fill ma pipe an licht it, an I go back tae bed again.

"Ay maun it's a terrible thing tae rise oot among the blankets especially oan a frosty mornin ..eh...ho-ho
I say did ever any of you chaps ever waken on a beautiful Sunday mornin about half-past six an then open your eyes hi-hi ... ay ... hi-hi
If you were able to open them? An there you're lyin there ye know.
Did ye ever lie there an realise thit ye didn't have to rise an go to yir work?
Isn't it a luvely feelin, oh maun, oh dear, OH HO! Oh it's luvely man!
Ye lie there ye know, an ye hear the canary singin in the room, ye know, ay an the .. i-hy ... an there the wife she's in the kitchen, ye know, washin the dishes.. i-hy ...an brekin them! .. hy-hy .. ay an your lyin in yir bed ye know an ye, an ye can hear the ham-an-eggs skirlin in the pan, oh mind Ah'm tellin ye ... hy-hy ... "

Beautiful Sunday, I wish it wid never come Monday
'Cause I lie between the sheets ma bed adornin;
Oh it's very nice, man it's very very nice
To get yir breakfast in yir bed oan Sunday mornin.

Beautiful Sunday, I wish it wid never come Monday
'Cause I lie between the sheets ma bed adornin;
Oh it's very nice, huh, it's very very nice
Tae get yir breakfast in ................

"Aw boy what a treat ... hy-hy-hy-hy-hy-hy-hy ... one of the treats of civilisation .......is tae get yir breakfast in yir bed on Sunday mornin.
Hy-hy-hy ..ay -ay .... "
