Curmudgeon Blues

I don't suffer fools gladly
It makes me a bit prickly
I'm wiser than your inner child
Says my inner curmudgeon
Your small talk, pleasantries, and platitudes
Don't reach me
The soothsayer's twaddle
The seductive pose of the supermodel
Banalities of banalities, all is banality
All the charms of the world
No longer touch me
(love goes so cold)
The more I care, the more disappointed I am
You believe you're so special
Maggot food is all we are
All your fun, your fads
Your Facebook and Twitter
All the annoying chatter
And your hip-hop and autotune,
Your self-affirming cocoon
And your bootie, your tattoos
40 years on they'll sag askew
Life will teach you, through lost love
And dead dreams, and abandoned idols
The bitter disappointments of life
Ah, sweet bitterness
Happiness is overrated
You're not gonna get what you want
Who said life was fair?
(love goes so cold)
My life's closer to being over
Than you pups have lived
So don't tell me to cheer up
When there's glass in the grass
When maggot food is all we are
What you're doing is a waste of time
To hell with your inner child
Embrace your inner curmudgeon
Happiness is overrated
And love will go away
All the charms of this world
Just commercialized banalities
And turn that music down
Stop all that loving and laughing
You'll see, you will see
Hey, where did everybody go?
Where did you go?
Where did my love go?
(love goes so cold)

Curmudgeon Blues
Amusing lyrics delivered with the requisite amount of curmudgeon-like irritation! Strong backing. Good one!

Hilarious misery!
Great stuff, I was downloading this before it finished playing. My headphones are crap so I can't comment on the sound, but the song and the performance are great.
Check out my latest song called Dreamer's Dance.
