Manic Monday - Clue

Sung to a strain of the blues...minor chord

Too many days go by, feelin' like I haven't got a clue;
Days I lie around the house, feelin' down and blue.
Then the dates on the calendar fly by way too fast,
And then all of a sudden, 'nother birthday has gone past.

I got the birthday blues, feelin' old and clueless;
Got the birthday blues, all alone and useless.
Feelin' like a granny with my hair up in a bun;
Walkin' like a loser, feelin' like I'm done...

Switchin' from a minor key to one that's major C;
Readin' words and feelin' that the blues are killin' me.
Gonna take a clue from people who are feelin' mighty fine;
And tell myself bein' clueless is just a state of mind!

No more birthday blues and feelin' old and clueless;
Got no more birthday blues, not alone and useless.
Gonna pick up my troubles and pack 'em in a bag,
Throw 'em in the river - now it's my turn to brag!

No more birthday blues and feelin' old and clueless....

Please visit MO, the originator of this meme, Manic Monday...

I didn't know that you have a bun enthrowned on your head, lol ! And don't forget with each year we become wiser !! and don't have all these silly worries when we were teenagers ! Now how wise are you ?

Gracie's Blues Clue?

Asara said...

Awesome riff, Gracie! :) I could hear the guitars in my head while I was reading, it was fun!

Great little Monday clue poem. It immediately reminded me of the old Carpenters song:

What Ive got they used to call the blues
Nothing is really wrong
Feeling like I dont belong
Walking around some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and mondays always get me down

Nice! I should have sung this to myself back in January. :)

Well done Gracie. Sometimes we just need to remind ourselves how we should be feeling. Have a great MM my friend. :)

Mags said...

Very clever my Gracie! However, you can never be a loser, no matter how blue you are!!

aww, don't feel blue--you have friends here to cheer you up (if this song applies to you, hope not). Great post :)

Sanni said...

Excellent entry, Gracie. You´re a lucky one you couldn´t hear me singing =)

Please come over and find out if you have a clue where we´ll be living soon ♥
