The Lyrics

On the Internet round I’m hanging
Less time in the game room frown
Looking through files to change my picture
It’s hot here in this town
Turn on the air conditioner
Temperature I glance
Sat back down to type and change my picture
There is a finished challenge
Am I Right torch needs to be passed
Can take it I guess so
As I went to get lyrics that night
I volunteered oh no!

Woke up the next day didn’t sleep easy
Felt like I think you know no smile
Are my brown eyes still in their sockets?
More rest little while
I must get me up now I’m moaning
It’s a busy day I believe
You’re late for breakfast again
Eat fast don’t heave
Picking stuff from what was left
Get up and in to shower go
And just as I was going in
Dang it! I bashed my toe

Now it’s noon and I start thinking
A cow is coming better hide
A fortune cookie maybe?
Hurry hustle because the cow’s outside
A perfect carved cane from maple
Boy that doggie is sure tame
Every pet he she owner loved
My fish can do same
Ah that’s good lettuce you toss and dressing
Got to shave Mr. Potato
Think I’ll go to bed earlier tonight
Computer heated o

So I get up and look out my window
My garden it lacks more shade
Started twenty-second Birthday
And not much progress has been made
To me looks a bit traumatic
Well gee I try my best
It’s just too hot my decision
Garden full of lifelessness
When I water and have hose on
It reflects rainbow
The crabgrass I’m hoeing
Only green thing that will grow

Einstein wig and a phantom hood
Lots of stuff in my costume trunk
Took my sketch pad minutes ago
And drew me a ship that sunk
I find waiting just simply horrible
As I paint a silhouette
Then I thought for other projects
Stopped at C in the alphabet
On some clothes I need to fix the hem
And now better felt my toe
Waiting for the surge with the switch pushed in
Charge till green light says go

Time again to go on Word
Computer is all charged up
I sit down looking thinking
Drinking Pepsi out a cup
Do this or feel like a looser
Just rhyme and pun to fill in the hole
But I just cant fill in all I need
Just too long is the whole
Any way the wind blows whistles
Rhapsody you know
No Idea stretches quite long enough
Can’t make an idea flow

Not that delete and shut down Windows
Lets take a rest from this beast
The battery again low
My dinner not liked in the least
I’d much rather have a pizza
All of this meatloaf seems absurd
I’d lie to you I cant get enough
I wont play Scrabble making words
Need to get this thing done someday somehow
I guess I can just rhyme here crow
And use the word staying to replace the word going
Brainstormed all that I know

Close to midnight past my bedtime
It was no surprise I knew
I want to submit have this done
At least there’s just a few
So I went to bed not happily
After I scrubbed my teeth clean
And changed into some sleepwear
Teddy bear picnic scene
I sometimes use two pillows
Hope better to sleep I go
I don’t have any ideas left for dreaming
Into this all I throw


Yeah! It is now the weekend
I have showered laptop’s on
This thing I’ll finish filling
Most the stress is gone
The lighthouse and Pete’s dragon Eliot
Nora Candle On The Water
Cant wait to get this thing sent in
Try again to have flowers
Sing Sebastian under the sea
Where mermaid wont stay no
And now I don’t have to think so much
But I still have one more doh!

Just finish these lines It’s taking each day
(And this time I am drinking Coke)
Not quite sure how I am doing
It’s not some kind of joke
Just do it finish your mission
Yes do this before insane
How many times I rearranged this
Will finish without any shame
It’s dinner time I want food
What’s up two lines bad grammar yo!
Now going to submit this
And have a drink with Moe
