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...
