lyrics

Blowin’ on my whistle
Ray Rodgers

I’m tired of all this posturing.
I’m tired of all this bitchin’.
I’m tired of all the bad cooks
that will not leave the kitchen.
I’m tired of all the fussin’,
all the fussin’ and the fightin’.
Too much to burn.
Too many people strikin’.
I’m tired of wakin’ up
into another bad memory.

I’m tired of all this pushin’,
all the pushin’ and the shovin'.
I’m tired of all this hatred.
We all should just be lovin’.
I’m tired of the shameless
bein’ in charge of the greed.
I’m tired of the selfish,
when there’s so much need.
I’m tired of waking up
into another bad memory.

I guess I better build myself a bunker.
Go and buy myself a pistol.
I better wrap up all in armor
and start blowin’ on my whistle.

I’m tired of this back stabbin’,
the pinchin’ and the pokin’.
It’s all getting serious,
though everyone’s still jokin’.
It just makes it hard to know
what a boy ought to do,
when too many carnivores
are escaping from the zoo.
They run right straight out
into another bad memory.

I guess I better build myself a bunker
Go and buy myself a pistol.
I better wrap up all in armor
and start blowin’ on my whistle.
