The old saying about making sausages / laws applies to songwriting
--- if you know what went into it, it's ruined for you. But, I'll
make an exception for this tune.
The first verse of this song is, almost word-for-word, a standup comedy
joke I used to do. But, one night I put some minor chords behind it
and it became the most searing, depressing blues lyrics I ever wrote! For
pretentious navel gazers who like to analyze lyrics and theorize about comedy
/ tragedy, this is probably pretty interesting.
I liked the joke and love the song.
