Lyrics

Hey Chaos

My world is topsy turvy
I'm in disarray
Had a leak for about a week
Discovered it today
Porch light's out so I can't see
When Jehovah's Witness calls
I hear the scratchin' all night long
Of rats within the walls

[Ch]
Oh chaos
Won't you go away
Leave me alone so I can
Have a peaceful day
Hey chaos
I need to get some sleep
I want to send you far away
'fore I get in too deep.

My lawn is way past mowin' time
But my engine it won't start
I miss the smile of that gal o' mine
Ever since she broke my heart
The frigidaire is busted
Computer's on the fritz
Been tryin' to calm down quiet like
Before I blow it all to bits

[Ch]

I need a little money
My bank is overdrawn
I'd write a song about it but
My imagination's gone
If I had a job I'd quit it
And call myself retired
But I'd wake up a little late
And probably just get fired.

[Ch]

"Porch light's out so I can't see
When Jehovah's Witness calls"
I LOL'd at that line. This is a fab skirmish entry. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

I wanted to mention, too, how catchy the chorus was. It was still with me after the song had ended. That must mean you did something right.

Guitar playing sounded great from the start. Like another entry I've listened to, you have a good story telling delivery. I like how you strum that guitfiddle. Sounds good.

Yep, been there, done that. Porch light out, overdrawn bank account, overgrown lawn, some perfect images there. Love the country-bluesy approach musically. Nice pickin' & strummin' - really good song!!

Fun to listen to, not fun to experience. Cool take on the skrimish prompt. Beautiful singing and playing.

Nice visuals. Leaks, tall grass, rats in the walls. And oh, yeah, I miss that gal of mine.

I like "If I had a job I'd quit it'.
