The "I oughta" blues

Please use your own mental instrumentation for this one: The "I oughta" blues-

Got plenty o' names here
In my battered address file
Got plenty o' names here
In my battered ole' a-dress file
Thought those cards would be mailed by now
... well, they might be in a while.

Got stuff lined up on amazon
the one that is dot com,
Got my stuff lined up on am-a-zon
that's the one that is dot com
Got my mailman runnin' circles
up through next week and beyond.

This here advent
it is slippin' on away
Yes, I mean that this ole ad-vent
it is slippin, slip slidin a-way
I oughta get down to biz-ness
To be prepared for Christmas day!

I oughta light a candle
on that nice ole advent wreath
I oughta sort through the mail stack
which to shread and which to keep
This case of the I oughta blues
is 'bout to make me start to weep.

There's paper and there's ribbon
oughta tape down, oughta tie
But the crafties goin' in 'em
oughta have some time to dry
These lowdown "I oughta" blues
'bout to break me down an' cry.

I oughta scale down now,
I oughta take it easy some.
Well, well I oughta slow down now
I oughta look at this as fun.
If I can't go losin' these I oughta's
Then that devil, he done won.

Don't get a case of 'The I Oughta Blues'. Take time, slow down, pay attention, Thank God!
