Don't worry, be happy

Here is a little song I wrote
It's much better than My Pet Goat
Don't worry be happy

In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy...

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Katrina swept away your bed
Don't worry, be happy.

The FEMA fellahs arrived too late
But what the hell, the poor can wait
Don't worry, be happy.

Look at me I am happy
Don't worry, be happy

To ease your problems and heal your aches
I'll give the rich some giant tax breaks
Don't worry, be happy

Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got no girl to make you smile
But don't worry be happy

Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring my poll numbers down
So don't worry, be happy (now)...

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don't worry, be happy
Listen to what I say

In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don't worry, be happy...
Don't worry don't do it, be happy

Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like this
Don't worry, it will soon pass

Whatever it is
Don't worry, be happy!

I am sending MY reader over to see this!

That's pretty creative, Karlo.

Karlo said...

Thanks! When nobody initially commented, I thought I was the only one who could remember the song. Which is strange. I ain't that old.

Love this! But now, whenever I'll think of the tune, I won't be able to remember the original lyrics...

Karlo said...

My devious subversive tactics are working!

Excellent! No, I certainly remember that song. It was so horribly overplayed, it took me at least five
years to get the @*%((er out of my head. Your version is much better.

Hey, if you want that impeach bush graphic on a t-shirt...


A little shameless self-promotion, certainly, but whaddaya want- it is mine.

They've been especially popular since the NSA story broke... for some reason.
