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.
