Evil Morning

It must have been yesterday,
(I know it ain’t today)
Must have been yesterday
I started feeling this a-way.

I feel so mean I could
Bite a nail in two.
But before I’d bite a nail
I’d pulverize you.

You’re the cause
O’ my feeling like a dog
With my feet in the mire
And my heart in a bog.

Uh! It sure is awful to
Feel bad two days straight.
Get out o’ my sight be-
Fore it is too late!
