I received an email today that describes How to Sing and Play the Blues. It was very funny but unfortunately, I don't know who wrote it so I can't give proper credit. I forwarded it to a few music lovers and musicians and one of them, Ken Stark, Owner of Stark & Associates, a St. Louis sales development firm, replied back in less than five minutes with his original lyrics to "Too Much Pretendin' Blues". Next time your salespeople are singin' the blues, have them sing this instead!
The Too Much Pretendin' Blues
Was king of my world bout a year ago.Then things out therethey got really slow.The man don't pay mewhen the cash don't flow.Got dem not enuf doinand too much pretendin blues.
When nobody's buyinain't much I can doCep sit around cryinjust thinkin bout who
Would take someone onwho wakes up each dawnWith demNot enough doinand too much pretendin blues.
