    A bad place,

    A terrible place to live......

    Ahh, but I don't wanna die!......

    It's sort of a depressing song, don't you think? I think even if the whole world is a big dark closet, as long as I've got a
    happiness flashlight, I can still see clearly around my own life. I can't change the world, but I can always change my own attitude.
    I didn't make that up. I think it's probably some Yiddish Proverb my mom ingrained in me. She doesn't do pity. :)

    @Bess Barber
    What I liked so greatly when the radio was playing it as I worked on my car, was the "catchy" tune; words were simply "there". Later in life, I appreciated more what the guy was saying......life dishes out bad times now and then, and if they continue for a long while, yes, folks get depressed.

    Your mother and mine both sound like good mothers. My own taught me a lot which would never be learned in school. Frank
