Video: “I’m a mess” – the Valentine’s Day song
Now, before we get started, I have some defending to do. Since February 2nd, at least one person in our house has been sick. For myself, I was sick from like the 6th through the 13th. So, as you can imagine, all of the Valentine's Day planning and shopping that I would normally do went right out the window. Now, I know what you are thinking, "Hang on Ukulele Guy, you don't strike me as a real planning type. How can we accept this excuse when you probably wouldn't have done any planning or shopping for Valentine's Day had you been healthy?" And, my reply to that is "Shut up!" Sheesh.
So, anyway, once again I'm left with only my once-quick-but-now-dulled-through-years-of-beer wits and my trusty Ukulele. Thankfully, driving to my oldest son's Valentine's Day party at school I got stopped at a train crossing. I swear the train must have been 200 freaking cars song. For some reason I had the radio off so I just started singing "I'm a mess, but I'm your mess" and that got me started. Unfortunately, it took me until February 15th to finish the song. But, on the plus side, I actually wrote a bridge for once. Anyway, here's the video for it.
Now, I'm not sure why you would want the lyrics and chords to this song. I mean, unless your kids are also named Simon and Gus and you also like all the same stuff that I do and you also drink beer and play Nethack till 4am? If those things are true then we need to hang out.
