Verse:
Some fellows love to 'Tiptoe Through The Tulips."
Some fellows go on "Singing In The Rain."
Some fellows keep on "Paintin' Skies With Sunshine."
Some fellows must go "Swingin' Down The Lane."
 
Chorus:
But I'm bidin' my time, 'Cause that's the kind of guy I'm.
While other folks grow dizzy, I keep busy, Bidin' my time.
Next year, next year, Somethin's bound to happen.
This year, this year, I'll just keep on nappin',
And bidin' my time, 'Cause that's the kind of guy I'm.
There's no regrettin', When I'm settin' Bidin' my time.
