Thread Name: Song: Didn't wake up this morning!
Subject: Didn't wake up this morning!
At Cardiff's BBC club this evening, Bob Woodley introduced a blues song, saying that all blues songs seem to start "I woke up this morning"!
I took this as both inspiration and challenge. The result is quoted below. Obviously, this was "off the cuff", so if anyone wants to use it, or improve om it, then please feel free. I have sung it once (at the BBC club) and now consider it to be 'public domain'.

Cheers
Nigel

(I) Didn't wake up this morning
Alarm clocks they're no u...se.
Didn't wake up this morning
Didn't don my socks and shoes.
Didn't wake up this morning
I've got those Zombie Folker blues

Didn't wake up this morning
Don't need no kilt nor trews.
Didn't wake up this morning
My clothes I didn't choose.
Didn't wake up this morning
I got those Folking Zombie blues.

Didn't wake up this morning,
I know it's no excuse
Didn't wake up this morning
That's why my voice is just no use.
Didn't wake up this morning
I' got those undead, uptight, deadhead, poor wight, Zombie folker, almost talker,   blues.
