The Lyrics

...a recent happy parody of mine was described as "dragging on" as so "euphoric" after the first verse ....so thought I'd do a miserable one to balance the scales... ;-) having said this - feeling this way is no laughing matter........
Face is like stone
You're often thinking "If only"
When just always so ground down
Time it don't hurry
All drags on n'ere to flurry
As you yelp, so low, ground down
Light glistens on your sick, you're thick, not very witty
Fingers are like crab claws and your face is such a pity
You got the blues
The fight's made you a bitter mare
You so regret drinking doubles, forget all your prayers you're so
Ground down, you're full of hate cos you're
Ground down, a whiney face, a bore
Ground down, everything's baiting at you
(Ground down)
(Ground down)
The gang's around
And their anthem's to hound you
Things ain't groovy, nose's ground down
Baby you know
Your brittle face it does show
Fear forever known, ground down
You're hissin' with no wisdom going mental and moreover
Fleas be prancing on you too, your fight is never over
Scratchy again
The bites are much sorer there
Your agony it just doubles, you just rant and swear you're so
Ground down, got no fight for your plight
Ground down, scratching with all your might
Ground down, hoping the end's in sight now
(Ground down ground down)
Ground down
(Ground down)
And every day's a daily grind of hell, all undermine you
No one suffers like you or feels they understand you
Cry all is wrong
So baby see no one cares
Your agony it just doubles, you rant and you swear you're so
Ground down, you're full of hate cos you're
Ground down, a whiney face, a bore
Ground down everything's baiting at you
Ground down (ground down) ground down (ground down)
Ground down (ground down) ground down (ground down)
(repeat & fade out)

This is all my fault. I feel so sorry, LeeBee, for what I said about your earlier parody "Homeopathy." I never intended to get you this down. How about some (sincere, though, honestly!) 5s to get your mood back up? I don't want to be your party crasher. You'll never forgive me...
