"Goofiness, but with a message" is my latest mantra. Trying to have some fun, what with all the crap going on. Still a scratch version. Hope you enjoy it!

REJOICE

Monday I was looking forward to the day ahead
I went out to start my car, but my battery was dead
Tuesday I forgot to Tivo my most favorite show
Wednesday I misplaced my keys, when I was looking I stubbed my toe
Thursday I was feeling sick, my throat was rather sore
Friday when I got to work, there was a pink slip on my door

I know this is the day You made, and I'm trying to be glad
But when Murphy's Law comes after me, it kinda makes me mad
When I'm down, the only way that I can look is up
Could You change this water into wine in my half-empty cup?

Yesterday my wife and I got into a little fight
I slept on the couch and now my hair's not looking right
My world is caving in and I don't seem to have a prayer
And here I'm trying to part the Red Sea when I can't even part my hair

This could be a country song, but my hound dog didn't die
And bad things happen to good folks, but I really don't know why
And yet You say and say again that I need to rejoice
I guess it's time that I submit, 'cause I haven't got a choice!

(talking)
Dude, my insurance just went through the roof
And, holy cow, have you see the price of potato chips lately?
When's it gonna stop raining
And my fantasy football team stinks
And...so do my socks
...and the economy...and I think I threw my back out again...

Whine and moan and cry and groan is all I seem to do
I'd really like to have that joy that only comes from You
I just checked and there's no spotlight right above my head
Maybe I should focus on some other folks instead

I know this is the day You made, and I'm trying to be glad
But when Murphy's Law comes after me, it kinda makes me mad
When I'm down, the only way that I can look is up
Could You change this water into wine in my half-empty cup?

This could be a country song, but my hound dog didn't die
And bad things happen to good folks, but I really don't know why
And yet You say and say again that I need to rejoice
I guess it's time that I submit, 'cause I haven't got a choice!

Hey this was
a fun ride. Really great wordsmithing. You seem to have pegged the life style of a lot of folks out and I have a sore toe also. This should have air play. Talk to you local station(s) program director and ask what he thinks about the song or what needs be changed for their formating. You should have not prob. getting this on a mild rotation and call ins for feed back. I worked for my why not you..........

I can relate
and a little levity sure helps, doesn't it? A sacrifice of praise is not easy do do wen Mr. Murphy keeps striking, but like you say, it's the only choice. God always comes through, sometimes at the 11th hour and 59th minute though. It's good to see you still have your sense of humor while you wait for things to improve! Really good musicianship! :-)
