The Lyrics

Well, I never felt more like swiggin’ the booze
Coz I never thought that I'd ever lose…
My left leg, what a gloomy ol’ day

Well, I never felt more like cryin’ tonight
They had to lop off the leg on the right
I’m legless now I’ve been swiggin’ the booze

The mountain peaks are so sublime
Without my legs, they’re hard to climb
There’s nothin’ left or right to use
It’s why-why-why I’ve got the blues (he’s got the blues)

Well, my pals are all up for runnin’ today
They’ve asked me to go but what can I say
Without legs, I’m gonna have to refuse

*****

Well, I never felt more like swiggin’ the booze
Coz I never thought that I'd ever lose…
My left arm, what a gloomy ol’ day

Well, I sure as hell won’t be pickin’ a fight
They had to lop off the arm on the right
I’m ‘armless an’ I’ve been sippin’ the booze

Oh, I sip through straws to drink the wine
My limbs are gone; it’s hard to dine
There’s nothin’ much that I can do
It’s why-why-why-why I’m so blue (why he’s so blue)

Well, I’m lookin’ for work but nothin' I see
A paperweight now is all I can be
Or doorstop, so I’ve been sippin’ the booze

This excellent parody got off on the right foot, is the bee's knees and decidedly has 'legs'....oh yeah, it's hip to boot!

Good matchup with a "blues" song. Paperweight's might not be in big demand with everything going online.
