Sad-Eyed Sam Sings the Blues

Now, let me tell you people why I look sad all the time
Mister Trouble come to see me, and he took my final dime
Left my body sick and sufferin’, layin’ helpless on the floor
Now I almost got no reason to keep goin’ on no more.

But I got a girl who love me, she’s the sunshine of my days
I try to keep her happy with my perky puggy ways
That’s why I keep a-movin’, lookin’ forward to when
All my troubles are behind me, and I’m in her arms again.

        Ahhh. I too am instrumentally challenged.

        Pugs are so expressive.

    “Annnnnd it might be because I mistakenly peed on the piano tuners leg and they put me back in the crate but the ‘girl bent’ sells way more platters. “

    That’s nothing short of brilliant. I see a Grammy coming your way.

      Didn’t have my reading glasses on yet and I read “I see a Granny coming your way,” and I thought, “Wow – that must be metaphoric … ” Or maybe not! Maybe literal! Watch out, NOMTOM, there’s a grandmother sneaking up behind you. It’s one of those horror-movie black-and-white-characters-in-a-colour-film grannies, in a ragged nightgown, stringy salt-and-pepper hair hanging across her face, sinewy arms extended toward you, all papery skin hanging from old bones. No matter how fast you run, she seems to always be closer and closer behind you….calling your name…..

      (it’s where my mind goes …. I can’t help it …..)

        What a movie script! Birdcage, I see an Oscar coming you way.

        Our brains are on the same wavelength 😀

          Oscar! Smarmy Uncle coming your way. Stringy salt and pepper hair. Sinewy arms….

          Oops couldn’t help myself.

    Sam, I thought I told you not to play—

    Rick: You know what I want to hear.

    Sam: [lying] No, I don’t.

    Rick: You played it for her, you can play it for me!

    Sam: [lying] Well, I don’t think I can remember…

    Rick: If she can stand it, I can! Play it!

    I have to show my thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of difficulty. Because of looking through the online world and obtaining recommendations which are not productive, I thought my entire life was over. Living minus the approaches to the issues you have solved by way of your main posting is a serious case, and those which could have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not encountered your site. Your personal knowledge and kindness in taking care of the whole thing was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this reliable and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to refer your web sites to anybody who will need recommendations about this problem.
