Burnt Toast


Burnt Toast (Martini)

Woke up real late, slept past my alarm.
My eggs are cold and the OJ is gone.
Hey, it snowed and I got no heat
and you know this day – it just got me beat.

The loaf is down to one last slice
and the butter is on its last little sliver.
Pop up from the toaster, what do I see?
It’s a piece of toast that's too burnt for me.

Well, there ain't no sense in crying over spilled milk.
There ain't no use in bitchin' over burnt toast.
Within these bad days, we become engrossed.
But you know that life could be worse than worrying about burnt toast.

My dog got sick on the brand new rug
and it sits right next to the red wine stain.
My car won't start – doesn't matter got a flat.
It’s another mishap. Well, would you look at that?

Now, I dropped my food all over my sweater
and it may be crude but it made it look better.
Just get me home ‘cause that's all I wanna do.
But this city traffic just won't let me through.

When you feel your value up at stake,
see it through – I know you're harder to shake.
When your worth is down a penny to none,
the trick's to see that you've already won.
