|German term or phrase: morgen, morgen, nur nicht heute, sagen alle, faule Leute.|
|morgen, morgen, |
nur nicht heute
|Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today.|
This is a German proverb. The literal translation is, "Tomorrow, tomorrow, just not today, say all the lazy people". We don't have this exact proverb in English, so what I've done is give you the nearest equivalent, which carries the same basic idea. The industrious get on with it, while the lazy procrastinate. Hope this has helped.

Rowan has quoted the traditional English proverb, but my version is what the lazy people say. :-)
