Tough to Recall

(middle eight)
Gliddy glub gloopy; Nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo...
Sabba sibby sabba; Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo...
Tooby ooby walla; Nooby abba nabba
Early morning singin' song.

Every time I read n sing these lyrics I force myself to feel silly, n it does improve my mood.

They are from the old musical : "Hair" (Galt MacDermot / James Rado / Gerome Ragni)  song,
"Good Morning Star shine" 

But I know my brain isin't as good at learning now, because I can read n sing this, but when I'm working bored silly, I can't for the life of me remember them correctly without being able to read them.

I'll  have to come up with a trick for remembering. Kinda like when an old singing buddy n me had to perform our harmonized version of "Heart of Gold" n always chanted "Getting n Growing!, Getting n Growing!, ..." before the song to both get the "... and I'm ______ old" part in correct order.

When I used to play "Stairway to Heaven" at gigs I devised a cheat-sheet of the first words to each verse so I wouldn't mix them up, n had it taped to the back of the guitar.

 Probably it's the "while under pressure" factor doing in my brain. I'm under way too much pressure most of my day. I even have to count down seconds while on bathroom runs, n I do usually have to run to make it back before production crap literally hits the floor- then I have to work more after to get the amounts needed.

Lately almost every time I get an early break n some one takes over for me, I'm punished by having extra to do after I should be done for the day, due to the replacement worker breaking the product. On my Friday it happened again. I was told not to worry about it, then I had to do the make-up amount (a two-person job) by myself, when I should've been done for the day.

I get so sick of being punished for others disregard for doing a good job. They will probably be rewarded by not being allowed to do it again, then they tell their friends, n they will get out of it too. The young folks lately have zero pride in their work reputation.

Hey, maybe "Gloppy" can be used to remember "Gliddy glub gloopy;" to begin that lyric...  
I'll wait until I'm back under pressure n see if it works. 

(Who else would do this to their brain on purpose???)

I had forgotten that old song and it does have a happy lyrical mood to it. You need to think of some strategy where you will not be responsible for fixing the errors of others. It is not fair and it does not pay you their salary. Use that globby glippy mood to come up with a new strategy.

right now no song makes me happy
no lyrics do I want to sing
Still when they ask me to do extra
from a rope I wish they’d swing

They go home right on time
and always seem to come in late
yet if I go and miss 5 min they
threaten to throw me out the gate

do all the work for the young
set around on their big fat a**
They will make boss before you
then fire you for giving them any sass

Perhaps its finally time to start searching for a new job. One that has slightly better working conditions and a boss whose brain isn't 50% gone to pot.

I used to sing Good Morning Star Shine to my nieces and nephew when they were little. Lovely little song - it is a happy song, too.

Tabor, I always tell them they owe me some of their check- but they are such brats n don't listen. I generally just need a new job- but most others are getting cut these days. I've tried everything in my ten years there- I always seem to get stuck being in more pain n doing extra. I used to not speak up- now I do everytime!

Ellis, exactly! This is why I need to hit the lottery... That tune does cheer me up tho.

G.B., There aren't better available jobs with the hours- believe me I've been looking. I did think og you n your music posts when I wrote that post!

Lynn, I think it works wonders to think of it- I've liked it since I was a teen-ager. Some old tunes need to be brought back- Good to hear you know it too.
