August 29 2006 Got The Greens

I Got The Greens by Steve Jones

This is a song about the blues
Why do people write
Songs about the blues?
It’s always the same
How they’re unhappy

I guess that’s why they call it the blues
I don’t understand what it means
I’m going to start a new form of music
I’ve got the greens

I’ve got the greens
I’m so happy, nothing could be sweeter
Every day’s wonderful
Me old girl’s still with me
I love my life
I love my life

I got the greens
I got the greens
Just won the lottery
Just won the lottery
I can’t be happier today
I just won the lot-ter-y

Hee hee hee hee
I got the greens
I got the greens
I got the greens
I got the greens

(harmonica bit)

Steve: (stops playing) Oh, It’s hard to play it and keep in time and do that at the same time. I’m not dyslexic, or anything, but…I keep losing my rhythm when I’m concentrating on my…

Mr. Shovel: Well, it’s a whole new form of music so you can just invent that it’s okay to be off-time.

Steve: Exactly. (continues with his song)

I got the greens
I got the greens
Everybody’s happy
Because I got the greens

There’s no such thing as a bad mood
When you got the greens

Woke up this morning
Got out of bed
Opened the window, stuck out my head
I saw the sun and the sky
And I said oh mymymy

I got the greens
Got the greens
Everybody happy you know what it means
We got the the greens
We got the greens

I’m so happy
I got the greens oh yeah
You know what this means we got the greens

I walk down the road
I went to my job
I had a better attitude
with my boss

I wanted to say
“Hey Boss, I love my job
can I get a few more hours
cos I love my job”

He says,
“Sure boy, just clock in there
and put in a few more hours”
Ohhhh I got the greens
I got the greens

I love my job
I got the greens
I love my goddamn job
I got the greens
You know what it means
Yeah yeah alright

I got the greens
I got the greens
I got the greens

There’s a girl on the corner
With a short skirt
She’s giving me a wink
And a smile
What does that mean
Does she want my knob
Yeahh I got the greens
Everybody’s happy
