Characters

1
He is a character lazy
Ditching parents' earnings ruthless
Sometimes some are jobless mazy
He is a character lazy

Some are born lethargic lazy
Parasites clinging on useless
He is a character lazy
Ditching parents' earnings ruthless

2
He is an eccentric husband
Enclosed with friends madly all time
Freaky sneaky friends never banned
He is an eccentric husband

They infest his home to sound grand
And to fear his folks any time
He is an eccentric husband
Enclosed with friends madly all time

3
A pious boy here can't get wedded
For most girls like to be modern
Ritual codes today dreaded
A pious boy can't get wedded

Stars match yet boys can't get wedded
For stars are old and not modern
A pious boy can't get wedded
For most girls like to be modern

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
