    Feeling da blues...
    used and abused
    worn out like NBA shoes
    Can't get no peace and not a
    piece
    Feeling da blues
    can't do it like I used to do
    No me and no you
    I refuse to lose
    But I am feeling so blue
    It's not the me I know
    I am the girl with the jokes
    the bounce with the ounce
    the party starter and the
    show stopper...now I feel
    like a bath tub stopper!
    I just can't shake
    this funk...it's like the smell
    of a skunk...
    I got da blues, not the winter
    blues , it's the all weather blues
    Not ya typical shake it off with a
    new hat or pair of shoes blues
    it's clinging to my soul and I can't
    even get control...left a hole in my soul
    this blues of mine...like I may have it all
    the time...like I can't get it off my mind
    trying to find a new direction , and some
    one worthy of my affection....
    Maybe I need a trip , take a dip down the
    coast ,where the crabs outside we can still
    roast...palm tree's and bananna leaves
    island men and funky rhythms...and get rid
    of all these isms... I got da blues...

    I appreciated the bluesy nature of the language.
