“Life Always Better with a Plan”
By re-imagined Brad Happel
The sun goes up
And the sun goes down
And he hands on the clock
Goes around and round
I just get up
And shucks, it’s time to lay down,
Life’s always better with a plan
My shoes untied, but shuck, I don’t care
I reckon I’m not a goin’ anywhere
I’d wash my face and comb my hair
But it’s too much wasted effort
I open the door, & the flies swam in
I close the door. & I’m sweatin' again
And in the process, I cracked my shin
Life’s always better with a plan.
The cow went dry, & hen won’t lay
All the fish quit biting Saturday
My troubles keep pilling day by day
And now I’m a getting’ Dandruff
I sent my boy off to music school
And he promised to learn every rule
Now he’s back, and what do you know?
Living in the basement with an old banjo
I reach for my wallet, I got no cash
Look down at the gage, the car’s out of gas
It’s cold outside, I find my bottle of booze
Miles from home, get out my waking shoes
There’s a mouse a gnawing on my cupboard door
I guess he’s been at it a month or more
When he’s finished, he’ll sure be sore
There’s not a durn thing in it!
You can ask my honey, I been feeling kinda crummy
Everybody knows I not so good with money
I ask my friend the squirrel, to make me a referral.
I know his nuts are safe from winter peril
The death and taxes Pain and Woe
And aches and misery
And now I’ve got a cold in my nose
Like’s always better with a plan
The sun goes up & the sun goes down
And the hands on the clock goes around & around
I just get up and shucks, it’s time to lay down
Tomorrow always better with a plan!
Just go downtown, I not fooling around
Ask Brad, my man, for a plan!!
