Am I Not Busy Enough?

Tune: Am I Not Pretty Enough?

Chorus:
Am I not busy enough
Is my computer still broken
Do I talk too much
Am I outside smokiní
Donít I make you mad
Should I try it harder
Why do you keep on watching me

I work, sometimes, I let it wash over me
I sleep, I wake, I try hard to have a break
I come, I go, getting coffee makes me slow
I do the best that I can

Chorus

 I surf, I play, Iím on the phone all day
I stop, I start, I try hard to play the part
I chat, I giggle, I stop to watch The Wiggles
I do the best that I can

Chorus

Why do you keep, why do you keep, why do you keep on watching me
Why do you keep, why do you keep, why do you keep on watching me
