Morning Song – Surprise Surprise

April 26, 2016

Life is hard, and then you die.

That’s the message of Chris Smither’s disconcertingly cheery—and cheering—post-Great Recession folk-blues commentary, “Surprise Surprise”.

The art is finding the humor in it.

Well these things are not important, They ain’t what you think they are;

They’ll wear you down with worry, Then say “close, but no cigar”;

It’s a coil of common problems, Don’t bet the farm on getting them unwound;

By the time you get them straightened out, Surprise, surprise you’re underground.

Yes, you’re six feet down!
