Little Things Blues

Most of the time there’s been humankind
We’ve worked hard just to stay alive
Fighting war and disease and starvation just to survive
And with those big things out of the way and time to kill
It’s tempting to become Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells
And not get cross about emails about our brothers and sisters from around the world in the latest crisis
But instead explode with rage when an extra page comes out of the printer containing the one line
“Please consider the environment before printing this”....

It’s the little things - cos little things mean such a lot
It’s the little things - should be meaningless, but they’re not
It’s the little things - making you lose the plot
It’s the little things - toast lands butter side down
It’s the little things - keys nowhere to be found
It’s the little things - when is that builder coming round?

Chorus
It’s the little things that drive you crazy
It’s the little things that make you mad
Can’t do much about the big things
So the little things are all you have
And you’ve got to moan about something
Otherwise you’d have to be glad
And maybe have to do something about the bigger things
So maybe the little things ain’t so bad

But it’s the little things
Like the openey thing that doesn’t open it
It’s the little things
You pull the openey thing and you’ve broken it
It’s the little things
You end up using a knife - it’s a joke innit?

It’s the little things - like that talking question mark thing?
It’s the little things - like arguing with stupid machines
It’s the little things - they’ve changed where they put the baked beans.... again!
(Chorus)

It’s the little things - bus should be here and it’s five past
It’s the little things - bus comes along and it flies past
It’s the little things - I’ll miss bingo, or have to run quite fast
It’s the little things
If she spells my name wrong again I’m gonna sue her!
It’s the little things
Apostrophes - she don’t have a clue, her!
It’s the little things
And she always says “less” when she means “fewer”
(Chorus)

Oh but just for once I want the cab to come when I book ‘em
Just for once I want the kids to eat what I cook ‘em
Just for once I want things to stay where I put ‘em
(Chorus)

It’s the little things, save us from the little things
Deliver us Lord from the little things
