Too Much Work Blues

Damn phone rings all day
'rents want my time
their kids cry salt tears
I got the too much work blues.

The schedule says build me
web page is weak
report cards to process
I got the too much work blues

E-mails to answer
mysteries to solve
kids to console
and me with the blues

Doors to unlock
staff to appease
plans to write
and me with the blues

I got all the F-ing work I need
so he says in the song
lordy, I hear you
I got the too much work  blues

(inspired by Mark and fueled by a Monday)

  1. I had the Too Much Work Blues once too, but then I retired, and found out what it was like to really have a lot of work to do. Fortunately, I am the boss, and the time clock is out of order. There are no Fridays, but there are no Mondays either. Lunch hour starts the minute I arrive, and breaks never end. The work never ends either, but there's no one there to tell me about it, but myself. There'll come a time, Suzie Puente.
