Murphy Drive Me Crazy Blues

TTTO “David Drive Me Crazy Blues”, Echo’s Children

The breakage that’s hidden is not overridden
But somehow it will seem to work
The thing that went “crack”, the little planned hack
Will keep on quiet and lurk
And just when I had no doubt that the faults they are out
Some unlikely spark breaks the fuse
I’ve got the listen to mother, don’t even bother, Murphy drive me crazy blues

The advances we made only made us afraid
When machines break and leave us alone
We’d have got more response to our wishes and wants
If our need, we had not plainly shown
But the machine has no mind, at least none we can find
Though it does all it can to confuse
I’ve got the listen to mother, don’t even bother, Murphy drive me crazy blues

We hope and we pray that it won’t go away
That the damn thing will work as we planned
We don’t want to get hurt, with disaster we flirt
And we don’t want this thing to be banned
And if we’re going to pay, with our tears anyway,
Tell me, what do we get if we lose?
I’ve got the listen to mother, don’t even bother, Murphy drive me crazy blues

This couldn’t be true, I did not think it through
The excuses are dozen a dime
Fear of the fire will surely require
The factors of safety to climb
Because when bonefires start and we see we’re not that smart
And the metal and plastic will ooze
I’ve got the listen to mother, don’t even bother, Murphy drive me crazy blues
