Lyr Req: Life is Hard but Life is Hardest when ...

DigiTrad:
A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BRAIN
A SONG IN THE NIGHT
ANCIENT GREEKS
ETERNAL DOOM
FESTIVAL LOVE
GREAT GOD WHO MADE THE UNIVERSE
HAVE A NICE DAY
HONEST AL
I CAN SEE YOUR AURA, AND IT'S UGLY
I'M WORKING ON THE FOOD CHAIN
LIFE IS HARD, BUT IT'S HARDEST WHEN YOU'RE DUMB
MOAMMAR SAID TO HIS MEN
MOBY DICK
RUFUS AND BEVERLY
THE BIG BAND THEORY
THEIR BRAINS WERE SMALL AND THEY DIED
VEAL LIFE BLUES
ZEN GOSPEL SINGING

I am looking for lyrics to Mark Graham's fine tune with the approximate title "Life is Hard But It's Hardest When You're Dumb".

Thanks.

Cheers,

The Austin Lounge Lizards recorded this song on their "Small Minds" album:

Life is Hard, but Life is Hardest When You're Dumb

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb
No joie de vivre, just endless hours of tedium
With a negative IQ,
You'll be lonely, sad, and blue
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb
You wait for years but inspiration never comes
Thoughts you don't have remain unheard
'Cause you can not find the words
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb
Between your ears a dark and silent vac-u-um
If there's a void behind your face,
Why not rent out the vacant space
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb
Why not just lay back and smoke a bowl of opium
If being stupid is your fate,
Well just relax 'cause it's too late
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb

Just happened to be looking back at the old threads and spotted yours just now.

Enjoy this funny song!

I heard this song on PHC a couple years ago. So funny, but I could only remember the chorus "Life is hard but it's harder when you're dumb" I sing it to my students all the time, but we want the rest of the lyrics. mehowle@ftc-i.net

Here it goes, Beth:

LIFE IS HARD, BUT LIFE IS HARDEST WHEN YOU'RE DUMB

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.
No joi de vivre, just endless hours of tedium.
With a negative IQ
You’ll be lonely sad and blue.
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.
You wait for years but inspiration never comes.
Thoughts you don't have remain unheard
Because you cannot find the words.
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.
Between your ears a dark and silent vacuum.
If there's a void behind your face,
Why not rent out the empty space?
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.

Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.
Why not lay back and smoke a bowl of opium?
If being stupid is your fate,
Just relax cause it's too late.
Life is hard, but life is hardest when you're dumb.

I've been searching for the lyrics to this song ever since I heard it being sung on the Priory Home Companion show. The words always make me smile.
