A year of singing in a choir makes me think I can't sing at all.

Notes: I think I missed out a chorus, but I think you should get the idea. This has to be one of the funniest and saddest songs about drinking. I was stone-cold sober when I sang it, but now I feel like a drink.....
In my case sometimes when I drink too
much, the next day my boss asks me to
get on the plane... and i almost left my
passport at home.

Lyrics are funny, I know. But the
song's melody is kinda quirky.. and
alas, you nail it.

Alas? Oh dear - thank you, though!

Yes - this would be a great one for a
party, and there is a lovely bit of
harmonising too. Not sure about the
uptempo dance bit, though, but I got
round that by leaving it out!

Yes, I going mad here - I have been
having trouble replying to comments, so
I signed in and out, and now I have
given the comment to you I meant to give
on When Love Goes Wrong, Nothing Goes

I am truly an idiot (and, yes, I am

Thanks again, it's very kind you dropped
by to have a listen :) I always
appreciate it when somebody stops
singing long enough to be nice to other
Midomi-ers. I don't do it enough myself!

Gosh, not at all bored! Thanks again,
dear Divya!

This is unusual, Ruthie.
(May I call you "Ruthie"?
Are you sober? LOL!)

Well done, Ruthie. And your style here,
or your tone, is so different from your
usual ways of singing. (You are so
versatile!) Yes, of course, you do
indeed sound a bit drunk, haha, but
that's not what I'm focusing on. There's
a nasal twang and a flowing smootheness
(part of being drunk? haha) that could
be put to good use somewhere.

"Sad and funny" as you and Diane both
said. But I guess I'm not very
sympathetic to rowdy drunks. angry
drunks, sloppy drunks, ...drunks in
general, haha. So 'sad' is lower down
the list than 'funny' for me. Whatever.
I like what you've done here. 5*****

I've got it! Keep this same tone and
twang, Ruthie, and sing something of
Jewel (Kilcher)'s, like maybe "You Were
Meant For Me" or Who Will Save Your
Souls". Perfect!
(Just a spur-of-the-moment request
which you can safely shine on, if it
doeesn't appeal to you.)

LOL I was stone cold sober, I was just
putting on a little drunken act as
befits the song! I don't know Jewel
Kilcher - I know a song You Were Meant
For Me though - by Freddie & The
Dreamers..... don't think you mean that!
I will have a looky though!

Well, you know I like to play around,
but thanks a lot for the nice comments!

You are always so constructive :) Won't
be here for a few days though :( But
there's always another day (and we'll
always have Paris).
Posted by w00fdawg on 11/04/2008.
I'm surprised you don't know Jewel but
then, I can't think of Freddie's "You
Were Meant for Me"...



Don't you think your drunken twang will
be just right for these? LOL

Excellent song - yes it is sad and
funny. You really sing everything so
well. I would listen to you sing the
phonebook. :) Diane

Thank you so much Diane. I am surprised
this song isn't more well-known, I think
it's terrific, and it's a LOT of fun to

You make me blush, such kind remarks :)

Ohhh Josefina, how nice that you are
first - I have been neglecting
commenting on everybody lately - I feel
so bad when people like you, all good
singers, are kind to me.

Thank you!

feeling!! Loved it!! 5***** stars for
you friend!! Kisses!! Josefina
