"Down In The Dumps" as written by and Lonnie Mack....
Angry on the outside angry on the in
Disgruntled with the thing I see
Looking for a future that lies in your hands
Is such a bad place to be
Educated hippies and psychedelic yups
Really gets my Irish up
I am just a beggar, begging for some money
Spare some change to fill my cup

It's not so bad, I'm happy like a pig in shit
Unlike some puppet of a suit and tie chump
When anybody wants something from me
That's where I'll be face down in the dumps

Mercilessly seeking pleasure in my pain
The wages set do not increase
Can't afford the rent, I'm tossed out in the rain
I lost my life and lost my lease
Hard times are coming up around the bend
It's been that kind of year
My battle with the bottle, is back with a bang
I need a drink, so where is my beer

It's not so bad, I'm happy like a pig in shit
Unlike some puppet of a suit and tie chump
When anybody wants something from me
That's where I'll be face down
