Blee Blop Blues Lyrics

    All the night it's bli-bli-bli
    'n blop-blop-blop 'n drip, drip, drip
    I'm turnin' the faucet off

    Pretty uptight from bli-bli-bli
    'n blop-blop-blop, i hate this trip
    I'm turnin' the faucet off

    That faucet's drippin'

    Turnin' the faucet off

    Tryin' t'sleep, i need my rest
    But there's no rest f'me, i guess
    I'm turnin' the faucet off

    (repeat top)

    My mind is flippin'

    Turnin' the faucet off

    I'm tryin' my best to sleep
    I'm tryin' without success
    I tell y' it just ain't fair a faucet
    Measures in this mess
    That's it, i guess!

    Every night i gotta git up in the middle of the gol'durn night
    An' it's colder'n a swedish well-digger's behin'
    But i gotta do it
    Otherwise i'm outta' m'min. stone crazy

    Stop the faucet from drippin'
    'n drivin y'nuts - stone nuts
    It's drivin' you crazy
    One more drip an' you'll scream

    No stuff, you can look him
    An' tell he has enough
    Whoa-oh, lemme tell y'really
    It's rough

    Talkin' 'bout them blee blop blues

    I'm hip to that drip goofin' my sleep
    I'm so tired o'gittin' up in the night
    What a catastratrose
    Pride's got me feelin' i'm boun't'
    Behave like an oaf
    I'll git me a hammer - bam!
    Quite the difference in the way
    The faucet soun's now
    I'm gonna go bam-bam-bam-bam
    Bam-bam-bam on that faucet
    Damn that faucet for the stupid ol'
    Drip that it is i tell y'
    I really am sick o'that drip
    Maybe the plumber man's
    Got him a better, prettier tip
    About stoppin' that drip
    But as f'now

    When you be deep within y'nightly nap
    An' nothin worser than a drippin' tap
    You try t'lay there an' preten' you deaf
    But soon y' fin'ly know there ain' nothin' left
    That you jus' cannot stand it anymore
    You're hip
    Drip drip drip drip
    An' so y'git up an' you're half asleep
    You're so disgusted that'cha wanna weep
    You bump your knee while tryin' t'find the lamp
    Your throat is dried up and y'feelin' a cramp
    You can't feel dum'r an' you'd like t'kill the plum'er
    You envy children in summer camp

    But as for now
    But as for now
    The drippin' soun'
    The drippin' soun'
    Has got me so i'm 'bout t'tear the plumin' down
    I'm 'bout t'tear the plumin' down i'm talkin' down
    Y'gotta stop
    Y'gotta stop
    The constant seep
    The constant seep
    Because it makes it real impossible t'sleep
    Real impossible t'sleep, i'm talkin' sleep
    Your plum'er goofed
    So face the fact
    Y' gotta use
    A lot o'tact

    Your plumber really gotta' straighten
    Up his act
    Next time you're li'ble to crack

    Folks with leaky faucets
    Think o'wakin' up millions o'times
    T'stop the faucet drippin'
    Part o'the trouble o'livin' with plumbin'
    Is the dues a fella always pays
    Adoptin' fancy citified ways
    That's what'cha git f'livin in the city
    Whenever a nature lover hears your tale
    You ain' gonna git lots o'pity

    Dig - when y'r bothered by the blee bop blues
    Dig this - turn the faucet off'n you'll stop blues
    Then dig this - you won't have t'sing th'
    Blee bop blues

    When pipes're drippin' nerves're strainin'
    People jus' can't help complainin'
    Everybody really c'n dig that

    Stuff that pipe

    End this endless incredible gripe
    End this endless gripe

    That's them dues' - blee blop blues
    Yeah - - - - - - -
