lay (oneself) out
To put in a great deal of effort; to inconvenience oneself or go through a lot of trouble. I don't know why I always lay myself out to impress your parents—they never appreciate what I do anyway. Your brother and sister really laid themselves out to make your party special, so it would be nice if you showed a little appreciation.

Laying oneself out,
How can one lie low,
Word will get about,
That one can't say no!
