Origins: Life Is Hardest When You're Dumb (Graham)

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 can't find a Mark Graham recording of this song, either, but Here's a live performance by the Austin Lounge Lizards: The DT lyrics are on the left below, and my transcription of the Austin Lounge Lizards is on the right (differences in italics.
LIFE IS HARD, BUT IT'S HARDEST WHEN YOU'RE DUMB (DT Lyrics)
(Mark Graham)

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
LIFE IS HARDEST WHEN YOU'RE DUMB (Lounge Lizards)
(Mark Graham)

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
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 vac-u-um
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 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

Makes me think of the classic, If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough.

Based on a 30-second sample of the original (link), it appears as if Mark is active promoting his music on bandcamp, though his page is shockingly hard to find. Listen to this song (and support him with a purchase!) at the following link: https://markgraham1.bandcamp.com/album/the-funniest-songs-in-the-world?from=hp&action=buy

Life is hard when you're stupid, but it's downright dangerous when you think you know everything. (Just a general observation, not a criticism of the song.)

Am I the only one on earth bothered by the continuing use of the term 'dumb' to mean 'stupid'? Just wondering

Well, I'm not. I wouldn't use it in a formal situation.
