Life Gets Teejus, Don't It? (Carson Robison) 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. Copyright Carson Robison. RG
