This is a song I wrote in 2014 when I worked as a cook in a retirement home. I don’t remember the tune.
Reading this reminds me of how exhausted I would be after cooking for 8 or more hours a day.
It also reminds me that our shower was not working at the time.
Body Drag (2/10/14) Out of bed And to the tub. Wipe it out (A minor scrub) Fill it up and Get inside. Wash, rinse, stand up, Drain and dry. It’s the body drag. Do the body drag. Put on clothes And eat some food. Make some coffee. Drink it. Good. Drive the car To work, and park. Stay indoors From light to dark. It’s the body drag. Do the body drag. Deliver dishes, Food and drink. Take when dirty. Soak in sink. Wash, put away, Half hour break. Go back to it For a paycheck’s sake. It’s the body drag. Do the body drag. Pick up kids. Take them places. Run some errands. Mirror faces. Come home, make food, Put on table. Talk to family As you’re able. It’s the body drag. Do the body drag. Don pajamas. Get in bed. Read what sacred Writers said. Take some pills. Set the alarm. Sleep. Wake up. Do it all again. It’s the body drag. Do the body drag.
