Sleep All Day Lyrics
Pradap papa radada radada padap padap bom-bey oh hey
His after moan though cries oh no
He's building up a shine but he takes it slow
And he knows it time to make a change here, and time to get away

The line attributed to 'my old man' sums up the meaning of this tune nicely.
Realize that our narrator is not 'direct quoting' his father; rather he is sarcastically rejecting his dad's tendencies to "make mountains out of [molehills]" and succumb to worry and cowardice rather than take bold action and face down new challenges.
The concept of "sleep[ing] all day" is a metaphor for willful ignorance of necessary action an individual knows he or she must take because of fear, laziness, or a lack of true self-worth.
