Think About Your Troubles

- Harry Nilsson

Sit beside the breakfast table

Think about your troubles

Pour yourself a cup of tea

And think about the bubbles

You can take your teardrops

And drop them in a teacup

Take them down to the riverside

And throw them over the side

To be swept up by a current

And taken to the ocean

To be eaten by some fishes

Who were eaten by some fishes

And swallowed by a whale

Who grew so old

He decomposed

He died and left his body

To the bottom of the ocean

Now evverybody knows

That when a body decomposes

The basic elements

Are given back to the ocean

And the sea does what it oughta

And soon there's salty water

(That's not too good for drinking)

'Cause it tastes just like a teardrop

(So they run it through a filter)

And it comes out from a faucet

(And is poured into a teapot)

Which is just about to bubble

Now think about your troubles
