Damn Sad
words & music by Fredric O. Knipe

My baby left me
She left me flat
She left me flatter
Than a really flat thing
Like an old sandwich on a Kansas highway
Or some equally failed expectation
In a more or less flat shape like that

I think it's sad to be like me
And have no baby, no baby whatever
Not now anyway, and maybe never
And it's damn sad
To have no baby forever

My baby blew
She blew me off
And not just the one time
But that's not all her fault
I failed to catch exactly what she was saying
She had a cough, so I kept coming back
Until blown all the way off

I think it's sad to be like me
And have no baby, no baby whatever
Not now anyway, and maybe never
And it's damn sad
To have no baby forever
I say god damn it
And that is my opinion
I say god damn god damn
But that is just one
Man's opinion
I think it's sad to be like me
And have no baby, no baby whatever
Not now anyway, and maybe never
And it's damn sad
To have no baby forever
