"Recently Distressed" as written by Alexander Greenwald and Jacques Brautbar....
Dear Recently Distressed,
I am sorry to inform you
that I lost your kid's address
You see my wings are on the fritz
And I can't even get up off the ground
I'm really sorry for this mess
Because it all came crashing down

Can I remember
Someone please tell me how
To do my job or I'm out of work
And speaking frankly you will be out of luck

Dear Recently Distressed,
I am sorry to inform you
That I've caused so much unrest
You see my wings are on the fritz
And I can't even get up off the ground
I'm really sorry for this mess
Because it all came crashing down

Can I remember
Someone please tell me how
To do my job or I'm out of work
And speaking frankly you will be out of luck
Yeah yeah

Dear Recently Distressed,
I am sorry to inform you to inform you, yeah
I am sorry to inform you to inform you
I am sorry to inform you to inform you
That it all came crashing down

    General Commenti think it's interesting he starts the song like he's answering someone in an advice column...

    General CommentSomeone with the intention and desire to help but they mess up along the way and instead make things worse.

    General CommentYou know I never realized it was like answering an advice column. I mean I knew it was a letter or something, but that kinda makes sense now.

    It seems like he's trying to answer someone's problem but at the same time saying he has to deal with his own problems, so there's no use in asking him.
