014: I Ain't Got Time For The Blues

Well, you knew it had to happen -- this is the "Quick! Nothing else is ready! Write fast!" song. And, in keeping with the title, it was written precisely because I had no time to properly finish any of several other things I'm working on. But four verses of blues? I can do that.

Woke up this morning, fell outa bed and got dressed,
Burnt my eggs, toast, and newspaper -- wish I could get depressed,
But I ain't got time for the blues, better give it a rest.

The neighbor's dog attacked me, bit my leg clean through,
I'd locked my keys in my car, and when I got in, the radiator blew,
But I ain't got time for the blues, I got things to do.

My girlfriend up and left me, and so did my wife,
I had lunch at the Japanese steakhouse -- shouldn'ta tried to juggle the sushi knife,
But I ain't got time for the blues, I gotta get on with my life.

Headed for the highway, didn't see the sign that said yield,
Got intimate with a semi, ended up in an open field,
Well, now I've got time for the blues -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
