Woke up on the wrong side of the bed today...

As I was typing out the details of this year's annual pilgrimage and the dukkha that accompanied it, I kept trying to think of an appropriate theme song. I have no idea why this one didn't occur to me. Leave it to Incubus to sum up exactly what I was feeling, and with a sense of humor no less.

On my way home,
police car pulled me over.

After they left, I puttered out of gas.
'Triple-A' came, but my card was expired.
I had to walk home, but of course, it rained half the time.
I tried to get some shut-eye, but I was abducted.
They put cold things in my butt.
They sampled a bit of my D.N.A.
They left me on top of my sheets.
I dreamt I went potty, then woke up drenched in me.

Yeterday sucked hardest ever...
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today
A little bit less than nothing would go my way

Woke up to toss my soiled sheets.
The hallway was dark and I stubbed my big toe.
It was then that I sensed the irony, burning me...
I heard a voice say
"Come sail aboard S.S. Nepenthe!"

I suppose I'm to blame...
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today
A little bit less than nothing would go my way


Thank goodness for bathtubs and suds...

I suppose I'm to blame for getting pulled over.
I guess I'm the culprit for running out of gas.

Let's assume I'm the guy who didn't pay 'Triple-A'.
In actuality, I let the Zetas probe me.
Yesterday was all my fault,
I let negativity get the better of me.
Thank goodness for bathtubs and suds.
They temporarily set free this quandary.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today
A little bit less than nothing would go my way

Nice. We all have those days I guess. I in the 5 out of 7 days range. Ha! I crack up at the lyrics. Crazy that they could turn it into a song.
