TRYING & FAILING

 

Been trying and failing to read Shakespeare
A little failure here
A little tragedy there
And karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been waiting for its opportunity

Been trying and failing to keep off the beer
A little drink here
A little fall there
No karma’s not a nice one
But it’s been hiding and camping out for weeks

Truth is the roof is caving in
Under this strain I’m living in
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch
My leg right out and kick the bucket

Been trying and failing to stay away
From little dangers here
And little accidents there
‘Cause karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been hanging ’round like it knows me

Been trying and failing to keep out of the way
Of little villains here
And little menaces there
No karma’s never been my friend
But it’s been living and keeping me company

Truth is the roof is caving in
Under this strain I’m living in
Fact is someday I’m going to stretch
My leg right out and kick the bucket

Been trying and failing to get a life
Nobody sells them here and I’m not going over there
