Bo Lyr Req: Life Gets Teejus, Don't It? (16) Lyr Add: LIFE GETS TEEJUS, DON'T IT? (C Robison) 25 Jun 98

I dont know that it isn't Walter Brennan but here it is attributed to someone else. It's a GREAT song.


The sun comes up and the sun goes down,
The hands on the clock keep goin' around,
I just get up and it's time to lay down,
Life gets teejus', don't it?

I open the door and the flies swarm in.
I shut the door and I'm sweatin' agin',
And in the process, I crack my shin,
Just one dern thing after another.

Hound dog howlin' so forlorn.
Laziest dog that ever was born.
He's howlin' 'cause he's settin' on a thorn,
And just too tired to move over

The tin roof leaks and the chimney leans,
And there' s a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans,
And I've et the last of the pork and beans.
Just can't depend on nothin'

Grief and misery, pains and woes,
And debts and taxes, and so it goes.
I think I'm gettin' a cold in my nose,
Life gets tasteless, don't it.
