VERY MANY OF THESE CONTACTS EITHER DONT GET THE REPLIES TO THEIR QUERIES OR ARE JUST TOO ILL MANNERED TO REPLY.

Bill, I was looking for the words for "Life Gets Tedious, Don't It". I saw your offer to send the words to someone and I wondered if you would be kind enough to send them to me. If you also have the music that would be wonderful. Many thanks, and I wait in eager anticipation.
Regards, ken,

The sun comes up and the sun goes down
And the hands on the clock go round and roumd
I just wake up and it's time to lay down,
Life gets teejus, doon't it.

My shoe's untied, but, shucks, I don't care
Cuz I recon I ain't a-goin' nowhere,
I'd brush my teeth and comb my hair
Just too much wasted effort.

The water in the well get lower and lower,
Ain't had a bath in a month or more
I've heard it said and I'm sure it's true
That too much bathing will weaken you.

Danged ol' mule, he must be sick.
I jabbed him in the rump with a pin on a stick
He hunched his back, but he wouldn't kick
Something cock-eyed somewhere.

Hound dog's howling so forlorn
Laziest dawg that ever was born
He's howlin' 'cause he's settin' on a thorn
Just too tired to move over.

Well, the cow's gone dry and the hens won't lay
And my well dried up last Saturday
My troubles keep pilin' up day by day
And now I'm gettin' dandruff.

Roof's a-leakin' and the chimney leans,
An' there's a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans
Now I've et the last of the pork an' beans,
Just can't depend on nothin'

Mouse is gnawin' at the pantry door
He's been at it now for a month or more
When he gets through he'll sure be sore
Cause there ain't a dang thing in there.

Well, it's debts and taxes and pains and woes
Aches and miseries and that's how it goes
And now I'm getting a cold in my nose,
Life gets tasteless, don't it.

Do you mean that you have it on a CD ? I have the record & an elderly friend would love to have a recording of this song, but recording a record is never 100% satisfactory. If you have, where & how did you get it ???

Thanks

Anna

I remember the song from the early 1950's It was played on a lot of Country stations. I believe the Title is Life Gets Tegis. this is what I remember:

Sun comes up and the sun goes down
Hands on the clock keep goin round.
I just get up and it's time to lay down.
Live Gets Tegis don't it.

Water in the wells getting lower and lower
Can't take a bath for six months more
But I've heard it said and it's true I'm sure
To much bathin will weakin you.

I open the door and the flies sworm in
I shut the door and I'm sweatin again
And in the process I crack my shine,
Live Gets Tegis Don't it.

Hound dog howlin so forlorn
Lazyest dog that every was born
He's howlin cause he's sittin on a thorn
And he's too tired to move over.

Cows gone dry and the hens won't lay
fish stoped bittin last Saturday
(something something)

Debts and Taxes Pain and woes
Now I'm gettin a cold in my nose
Life sure get's tegis don't it.

Well thats all I can remember.

Just listened to the track again and -

Sun comes up and the sun goes down,
Hands on the clock keep goin' round.
I just get up and it's time to lay down.
Live Gets Teejus, don't it.

My shoe's undone, but I don't really care,
I ain't a-figurin' on goin' nowhere
I'd have to wash and comb my hair,
That's just wasted effort.

Water in the well's getting lower and lower
Can't take a bath for six months or more
But I've heard it said and it's true, I'm sure
Too much bathin'll weaken you.

I open the door and the flies swarm in
I shut the door and I'm sweatin' again
I move too fast and I crack my shin,
Just one durned thing after t'other.

My old brown mule, he must be sick,
I jabbed him in the rump with a pin on a stick.
He humped his back, but he wouldn't kick,
There's something cock-eyed somewhere.

There's a mouse a-chawin' on the pantry door,
Oh He's been at it for at least a month or more.
When he gets through there, he's sure gonna be sore,
There ain't a durned thing in there.

Hound dog howlin, he's so forlorn
Laziest dog that ever was born
He's howlin cause he's sittin on a thorn
Just too tired to move over.

Tin roof leaks, and the chimney leans,
There's a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans
And I've et the last of them pork and beans,
Just can't depend on nothin'.

Cow's gone dry and the hens won't lay
Fish quit bitin' last Saturday
Troubles pile up day by day,
Now I'm getting' dandruff.

Grief and misery, pain and woes,
Debts, taxes, so it goes,
And I think I'm gettin' a cold in my nose -
A-choo! - Life gets tasteless - don't it...


(Version by Peter Lynd Hayes and the Stardusters)
