One of These Days

Holy Guacamole!

I've got to get up and at 'em over the next few days, because as you know if you've been following my progress on this "50 songs in 90 day" challenge, the jig is up on October 1st, which is THIS coming Thursday.

Yeah, so like I said, Holy Guacamole!

This is my 46th song and it's called "One of These Days". Like most songs I write, it's not about one person or thing in particular, but a few things rolled into one. The obvious overall theme being, "One of these days I'm gonna RISE UP against some things that have been gnawing at me so, watch out!"

I could joke about it and make light of it
Pretend that it might go away
I could bottle it up, and brush it all off
And hope under the rug it will stay

But one of these days it's gonna come to light
and by then I'll be ready to put up a fight
One of these days it's gonna all come undone
and by then I'll be ready to run

I act like I don't mind, like it's perfectly fine
But it's weighing my shoulders down
I sit perfectly still and it takes all my will
To keep me from shouting out


I am gathering facts and planning attacks
For when I can't sit anymore
Out from nowhere I'll come and I'll knock you down dumb
and I'll finally even the score
