Procrastinator


Song lyrics to the music of Queen’s “The great pretender”. Inspired by Hobbo and Out-of-the-cave blogs, click on the names to see their excellent blogs.

Oh yes, I'm the great procrastinator (ooh no-o)
pretending that I get things done (ooh no-o)
my need is such I postpone to much
I'm slow start that no-one can help

Oh yes, I'm the great procrastinator (ooh no-o)
adrift with a list of to-do's (ooh no-o) 
I make the plan but to my real shame
I just can't get things to move on

Too real is the scene kicking cans down the road
Too real is my tactics delaying stuff

Oh, yes I'm the great procrastinator (ooh no-o)
just keep's putting things on hold (ooh no-o)
I seem to be stuck, sat on my butt
stalling my actions like a fine statuette
Pretending that I can get things done

Too real is the scene kicking cans down the road

Oh yes, I'm the great procrastinator (ooh no-o)
just sitting around on my ass (ooh no-o)
in my head you see a magical spree
but I'm just wearing my sofa down
procrastinating to see the truth
Pretending I that can get things done

I hope I don’t offend any fans to the fantastic band Queen and the singer Freddie Mercury. As a band aid I also put up the official Freddie Mercury video from Youtube. The song is originally written by Buck Ram (1907 – 1991). Buck Ram was from Chicago, Illinois. Composer, band leader and also the Platters manager. Also the Platters recorded the Great Pretender. Ha de Gött!

  1. this is riotously funny, Ulle, and the magic is you keep it going over 4 stanzas; a great take on the Platters’ original from the mid fifties 🙂
