Me & The Universe Blues by Paddy Garrigan and The Stroller Priests

Me and the Universe took a little trip
We took a little trip to see me friends
Bought some beer and some wine
And we had ourselves a time
And we drank till we were nearly at the end

I believed things were going to improve
My condition wouldn't waver any more
Then me and the Universe had a little fight
And they found me rocking gently on the floor

Walked in me den, the highest of all me
Went to bed believing me a God
I awoke next morn wishing I had not been born
And never thinking any of it odd

In love and lust, in God you cannot trust
Nor in matters of the heart will he attend
He will come ot you when you least require him to
And he may not be disguised as a friend

If you're feeling down, he may hand to you the crown
If you need a new idea, you cannot lose
If your head is full, he'll knock you down until
You're walking with the Universe Blues

Fear or flight: I never want a fight,
I'll never make a runner in these shoes
Come with me and I'll tell you all about
Me and the Universe Blues
