THE BLOOD SUGAR BLUES


THE BLOOD SUGAR BLUES*

CHORUS:

I got the Blues,

I got the Blues,

I got those Normal Blood Sugar Blues…

Not used to being down this far,

Feeling really different but there you are,

You won’t get healthy wishing on a star!

VERSES:

Been feeling funny since the time

I pushed levels down in record time…

Used my wife’s fast NOVOLOG,

As an extra boost—I felt like a dog!

CHORUS

When I woke up next morning

I felt younger with a certain spring….

Tested my sugar levels quick,

It’s a wonder I didn’t make myself sick!

CHORUS

Doctor says that’s not the way

For a healthy reduction in levels, eh**…

Says I should take it nice and slow,

But for short time relief it’s all I know!

CHORUS

Someday I will catch it good,

This short-term fix potentially could

Put me in the hospital…

I may hit bottom as the levels fall!

CHORUS

My wife wants me stay around,

She hopes I can stick it until we’re crowned

By Lord Jesus on that Day…

When He comes for His Church and takes us away!

CHORUS

So I’ll try to keep it down,

My blood sugar level and stay around…

My wife’s love can help me stand

‘Til we rise up together to the Promised Land!

CHORUS

Meanwhile I will try to choose

Carrot sticks rather than sugary blues…

With God’s help will break my bad habits,

Then I’ll wiggle my whiskers like a rabbit’s!

I GOT THE BLUES,

I got the Blues,

I have the blues,

I have the NORMAL BLOOD SUGAR BLUES…

Feeling funny but there you are,

Can’t get healthy on a wishing star—

It’s no wonder at “normal” I feel under par!

—Jonathan Caswell

NOTES:

*Sung to Pete Seeger’s version of WINNSBORO COTTON MILL BLUES.

**”eh” is pronounced “ay”…like in Canada.
