Between the Brighter Days                                     FEF   C Sept. 6, 2000

 

The IRS breathing down my neck,

My danged ole boss giving me heck

Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth living this life

The milking cow, she’s done gone dry;

And my dog quit barking, don’t know why

How can one man deal with all this stress and strife

 

                

          Between the brighter days, life’s pollution creates a haze

          And I’m left to try to see through  most of it

          When my back’s against the wall, it’s harder for me to fall

  1. 1.     It’s not how you eat the peach, it’s what you do with the pits
  2. 2.     It’s not how you mash the grapes, it’s what you do with the pits
  3. 3.     It’s not how you make the guacamole, it’s what you do with the pits

Lord, guide me between the brighter days……

 

Tis only telemarketers calling,

Made the new baby start bawling

This chaos is almost more than I can handle

Well, they tell me not to sweat the small stuff,

But I’m here to say it ain’t small, it’s tough

When burning both ends of that proverbial candle

 

          Chorus

 

My tabby cat even lost his purr,

My yard is full of stickers and grass burrs….

Doesn’t really matter, cause my lawn mower’s broke

Nobody ever sends me personal letters,

Just those nasty notes, Dear Mr. Debtor

Almost drives a man to drink and smoke

 

          Chorus
