WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  just this year
                 my mother put me away
                 'cause I stayed in my room,
                 playing music all day.
                 the doctor said,
                 "you need a function in life -
                 if not for your mother,
                 at least for your wife."

            II.  "what's the problem?
                 I don't understand.
                 like Jesus and Popeye,
                 I am what I am."
                 "the problem," he said,
                 "is your bank account:
                 nothing goes in,
                 nothing goes out.

           III.  "doc, I really had
                 no idea
                 that sanity equals
                 economic diarrhea.
                 but if that's what it takes
                 to get me out of this joint,
                 I'll try it and see
                 if I get the point."

            IV.  so I got a job
                 and started buyin' stuff,
                 though at first I was really
                 just callin' their bluff.
                 but now I got a house
                 and a color TV
                 and I'm certified free
                 of insanity.

             V.  I made so much progress
                 in so little time,
                 my self-esteem
                 is starting to climb.
                 and I'm so busy
                 just spending my pay,
                 I never sit around
                 playing music all day.

        ENDING:  all day...
                 all day...
                 all day...
                 all day...
