EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS

Every Little Bit Counts

My thoughts were gnawing at me so I tried hard not to think
I took a pint of whiskey and poured it down the sink
I'd get my act together, I swore it to myself
I looked up at your picture and I knocked it off the shelf
Every little bit counts
Every little bit counts


I tried and I tried and I tried to be so good
Wanted to be so good so bad
I tried and I tried and I tried every trick I could
'til I'd emptied out the whole damn bag
but it was too little too late

I'm no longer choking on the hair of the dog
It's been a couple of weeks now since I came out of the fog
The highs are slightly higher
And the lows are just as low
A mild improvement on the average even so
Every little bit counts

Though it may not count for much
They could be long forgotten
By the time you add 'em up
Every little bit counts

Yep...a little bit at the time...that's the only way to do it sometime!

Hey cowboy, How're you doin? I'm tentatatively coming back, but I wanted to see what you're up to... sounds like coughing alot, from the next post...hope that swine flu isn't on your doorstep like it sounds like! So far not many cases over here, and people are treating it a bit of a joke so far (we've been told its no more virulent or fatal than normal flu)...we'll see. Always can see in retrospect eh? :-)

You have been missed!
Been a lot going on around here health-wise...and I've been posting a lot! You have a lot of catching up to do.
I hope you stay a while if you can...
