Song Lyrics:
Life Gets Tee-Jus, Don't It?
Carson Robison

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

My shoes untied but I don't care,
I ain't figuring on going nowhere,
I'd have to wash and comb my hair,
And that's just wasted effort.

Water in the well gettin' lower an' lower,
Can't take a bath for six months more,
But I've heard it said and it's true I'm sure,
That too much bathin' will weaken ya.

I open the door and the flies swarm in,
I shut the door and I'm sweatin' again,
And in the process, I cracked my shin,
Just one durn thing after another.

Ole brown mule, he must be sick,
I jabbed him in the rump with a pin on a stick,
He humped his back but he wouldn't kick,
There's something cockeyed somewhere.

A mouse chawin' on the pantry door,
He's been at it for a month or more,
When he gets through he'll sure be sore,
'Cause there ain't a durn thing in there.

Hound dog howling 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,
There's a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans,
I've 'et the last of the pork and beans,
Just can't depend on nothin'.

Cows gone dry and the hens won't lay,
Fish quit bitin' last Saturday,
Troubles pilin' up day by day,
And now I'm gettin' dandruff.

Grief and misery pains and woes,
Debts 'n taxes and so it goes,
And I think I'm gettin' a cold in ma nose,
Life gets tee-jus - Don't it?!
