  • I think this would be another good candidate for the TW song thread. Never heard it but definitely going to find a copy of the music.

  • I don't think I have ever heard this song but the lyrics are very appropriate.

    When I saw the title of this song, I couldn't help being reminded of Madeline Kahn as Lillie Von Strupp singing 'I'm tired' in Blazing Saddles!!

  • Forty years old, and still rings as true as the day it was written

    I'm Tired


    I'm tired of being a fool
    And my mind going from hot to cool
    And trying to conform to others ideas
    And someone else's rules

    The life I'm living ain't mine
    I'm supposed to feel that's fine
    I didn't make the world I'm living in
    And I ain't gonna toe the line

    I'm tired of trying to be something I know ain't me
    I'm tired of living up to what people expect me to be
    You know some people are different
    Now ain't that a crying shame
    Now wouldn't be a real drag if we were all the same

    And I'm not going to try to please
    Eyes that just don't see
    If I get myself together
    You'll have the blues not me

    I'm tired of trying to be something I know ain't me
    I'm tired of living up to what people expect me to be
    You know some people are different
    Now ain't that a crying shame
    Now wouldn't be a real drag if we were all the same

    And I'm not going to try to please
    Eyes that just don't see
    If I get myself together
    You'll have the blues not me

    You'll have the blues not me
