I’VE BEEN DOING OK <br />
Tucker Finn © 2010<br />
<br />
I stole stuff from work <br />
And I got myself fired<br />
Where I once locked my bike<br />
There was now just a tire<br />
I had a flu shot<br />
But I still got the flu <br />
And at the opera<br />
A pillar obstructed my view<br />
<br />
My friends are all married <br />
So they don’t come around<br />
I need a lake full of beer <br />
Where I can capsize and drown<br />
My arm’s dislocated <br />
From paddling upstream <br />
And what now seems unlikely <br />
Had once been a dream<br />
<br />
And my get up and go<br />
It just got up and went <br />
and I know what I did <br />
But it’s not what I meant<br />
Now I’m frittering <br />
God-given talents away<br />
But other than that<br />
I’ve been doing OK<br />
<br />
I failed at a get rich quick <br />
Scheme that I hatched<br />
I lent my Hank Williams records <br />
And they came back all scratched<br />
My sister’s concerned <br />
And she holds firm to her view<br />
That it looks like I’ll never<br />
Recover from you<br />
<br />
My Asthma flared up <br />
While just lying in bed<br />
I reached for my puffer <br />
But my puffer was dead<br />
Gasping for breath<br />
All my lungpower drained<br />
I reached for a word <br />
And that word was your name<br />
<br />
And my get up and go<br />
It just got up and went <br />
And I know what I did <br />
But it’s not what I meant<br />
Now I’m frittering <br />
God-given talents away<br />
But other than that<br />
I’ve been doing ...<br />
<br />
Ok…I been doing ok...despite the fact<br />
it might not seem that way…<br />
<br />
And my get up and go<br />
It just got up and went <br />
And I know what I did <br />
But it’s not what I meant<br />
Now I’m frittering <br />
God-given talents away<br />
But other than that<br />
I’ve been doing OK...<br />
I’ve been doing OK<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
