The Lyrics

Getting back to finishing up the rest of the 'Dead's fine 1970 Album releases. This OS is the final song on "Workingman's Dead"...got a few more to do there and one more on "American Beauty"...
[Snorting sound just before instrumental intro]
{Uhhh...}
[brief instrumental intro]
What fried my brain?
It's hard to say
Something, 'cause my head is
in a dream
Lay in my bed
with big, dumb smile
Feels like some emulsion
is coating my mind

[to instrumental notes here]
{D'oh, d'oh, d'oh-d'oh}
{d'oh, d'oh-d'oh-d'oh}

Seems my memory
now has declined
cell degradation
and the passage of time
Cognitive functions
yeah, I've lost a few
and right now I'll pretend
that I can still comprehend

Memory is frayed
what was I sayin'?
Lately can't remember
anything
Holes in my head
not a good sign
Hey, can you please tell me
which car is mine?
{Which one is it, the Ford or the Dodge?}

Holes in my head
Yeah, brain cells are dead
Someone remind me
of what I just said
Did I just mention
this subject to you?
My memory is "jacked"
I just don't have a clue

Thinking's a strain
hard on my brain
Better get a tether
or a leash
Stuff in my head
lost; cannot find
Old-age has corroded
much of my mind

[During Instrumental break to instrumental notes]
{Oh, oh, oh-oh, where is it this time?}

{Lookin' 'round for the keys}
{to my car - can't find}
{Where is my wallet with my credit cards in it?}
{What was I doin'?}
{Where am I at?}
{I don't know sh*t right now}
{that's not...too good}

{Oh-oh-oh-oh}
{Where should I go?}
{Don't know what I'm doin'}
{Someone help me}
Please Help Me!
{Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh}
{Someone hit the "Space Bar"}
{and then they hit "Delete"}

{uh, uh, uh-uh, I'm in some deep sh*t}

All trashed and strewn
need a shovel to clean it
it would be unwise
to depend on me
Marbles all loose
you know it's the truth
A thought comes to me
the next moment it leaves

So now it's plain
Dry well; my brain
Has hit home; it makes me
mad; I seethe
Not much is left
of once fine mind
Right now less brains in my
head than my behind

Stir-fried; my brain
I can't explain
Just don't know what smooshed it
no, indeed
Rubbish-strewn head
disheveled mind
Did some evil potion
compost my mind?

Right now my brain
is like a sink-drain
Things get poured down in it
none remain
Now I'm bereft
I'm in a bind
Is there a solution?
in there no light shines

Memory is done
it's been expunged
Raking up the pieces
in a heap
dumbly, I said
"Please help me find
all the scattered bits and pieces
of my mind

Help me put together
shards of my mind..."

Hilarious, and this reminds me of...... well, something anyway - oh yeah, the spoof of those drug commercials: "This is your brain" [shows egg] "This is your brain on drugs" [egg frying in pan] "This is your brain on drugs with a side of bacon" [guy adds bacon to pan]. In other words, funny. I look at it this way: since we only use 5% or so of our brains, there is a 1 in 17 chance that a wasted cell was actually in service. Fuzzy logic may..- apparently I've forgotten simple math now lol. 5s before I forget.

Dee - was THAT the reason I felt like washing my hands right away? I thought it was the OCD coming back...lol...Red - A side of bacon is a terrible thing to waste...I'm REALLY gonna try to remember that... .. ..... .uh..whut?...
