Complicated Life

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest
I went to the doctor and the good doctor said
“I gotta slow down your life or you’re gonna be dead”

Cut out the struggle and strife
It only complicates your life

Well I cut down women, I cut out booze
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes
I stopped going to work, I stopped reading the news
I sit and twiddle my thumbs ‘cos I got nothing to do

Minimal exercise, to help uncomplicate my life
Gotta stand and face it life is so complicated
You gotta get away from the complicated life, son
Life is overrated, life is complicated, must alleviate this complicated life

Cut out the struggle and strife
It’s such a complicated life

Like old mother Hubbard, I’ve got nothin’ in the cupboard
Got no dinner and I got no supper
Holes in my shoes, I got holes in my socks
I can’t go to work ‘cos I can’t get a job

The bills are rising sky high, it’s such a complicated life
Gotta stand and face it, life is so complicated
Gotta get away from the complicated life, son
Life is overrated, life is complicated, must alleviate this complicated life

Life is overrated, life is complicated, Life must get away this complicated life
Life is overrated, life is complicated, must alleviate this complicated life
Gotta get away from the complicated life, son
Gotta get away from the complicated life
