      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

      I'll be happy to send it as an MP3.

      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!!

      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.
