A week ago last Sunday (14th March) I was listening to BBC Digital Radio 7, the immortal Garrison Keillor's Radio Show. (The BBC listing gave at as Episode 22 out of 33, but no further information on recording dates etc.)

A guest star gave a blues rendition; "I get the Blues, when I exercise". I rolled on the floor for several minutes afterwards.

Exasperatingly, I was recording something else on another channel, so I couldn't record it. Enquiries to the BBC have so far produced no result.

Can any 'Catters provide lyrics, composer/original artist etc.

BLUES WHEN I EXERCISE
Words and music by Pat Donohue.
© 2004 Salspot Music (BMI)
From "A Prairie Home Companion" radio show, November 27, 2004; repeated November 18, 2006; March 8, 2008; Jan 3, 2009; and March 14, 2009.

Woke up this mornin', not lookin' great.
My baby told me to lose some weight.
She said, "I love ya; I think you're sweet,
But when I hug ya, my hands don't meet."
then I said, "Darlin', don't ya realize
I get the blues when I exercise?"

I feel the heat. I'm outta breath.
My heart is speedin'. I'm close to death.
I try ta hustle, but it's a strain.
Ain't got a muscle that's not in pain.
It's times like this I recognize
I get the blues when I exercise.

I start to treadin' on the mill.
I start to sweatin' and lose my will.
I switch to pumpin' on the bike—
Another somethin' that I don't like.
I like those burgers and Biggie Fries.
I get the blues when I exercise.

She's got me runnin'. she's got me ridin' .
She got me runnin', bikin', joggin', hikin' ev'ry place I go.
Let it roll, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know I guess I'm just one of those guys
I get the blues when I exercise. [or "Who get the blues when we exercise."]

One of these mornin's—it won't be long—
You're gonna wake up and find some of me gone.
I'm gonna wheeze and touch my toes
'Til I can squeeze back in my clothes,
Or maybe just buy a larger size.
I get the blues when I exercise.

Strangely, when I go for a long run I get the opposite of the blues! Those endorphins really relax me and bestow a feeling of well-being.
