Oh Happy Day

"When I'm good, I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better." ~ Mae West
(...this one might sound good while strummin' a guitar...)

i fell in the pits and shattered to bits
i’m just a low-down clown that wears a frown
a moody, morose, weepin’ willow tree
crestfallen me is a sad sight indeed, oh

i broke my nail and i yelled like hell and
then you left to get away from the rest
of my hollerin’ and my bawlin' too,
you are a crummy dummy and ugly

to boot; I’m gonna scoot your stinkin’
jukebox off the first cliff of rocks I find,
watch it fall down and down and hit the ground,
shatter to bits and turn my frown upside

down, and mend my nail with a chunk of your
down-in-the dumps rump, oh happy day, yay.


  1. Like the way you mix end stopping with enjambment.

  2. haha...love it! the hard emo with the fun...totally would rock it out on the guitar...smiles

  3. Darn broke nail, causing all this trouble :/

  4. Yes, this would definitely work either as a blues song or a country hurtin' song!
