Little Things Blues

Most of the time thereís been humankind
Weíve worked hard just to stay alive
Fighting war and disease and starvation just to survive
And with those big things out of the way and time to kill
Itís tempting to become Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells
And not get cross about emails about our brothers and sisters from around the world in the latest crisis
But instead explode with rage when an extra page comes out of the printer containing the one line
ďPlease consider the environment before printing thisĒ....

Itís the little things - cos little things mean such a lot
Itís the little things - should be meaningless, but theyíre not
Itís the little things - making you lose the plot
Itís the little things - toast lands butter side down
Itís the little things - keys nowhere to be found
Itís the little things - when is that builder coming round?

Chorus
Itís the little things that drive you crazy
Itís the little things that make you mad
Canít do much about the big things
So the little things are all you have
And youíve got to moan about something
Otherwise youíd have to be glad
And maybe have to do something about the bigger things
So maybe the little things ainít so bad

But itís the little things
Like the openey thing that doesnít open it
Itís the little things
You pull the openey thing and youíve broken it
Itís the little things
You end up using a knife - itís a joke innit?

Itís the little things - like that talking question mark thing?
Itís the little things - like arguing with stupid machines
Itís the little things - theyíve changed where they put the baked beans.... again!
(Chorus)

Itís the little things - bus should be here and itís five past
Itís the little things - bus comes along and it flies past
Itís the little things - Iíll miss bingo, or have to run quite fast
Itís the little things
If she spells my name wrong again Iím gonna sue her!
Itís the little things
Apostrophes - she donít have a clue, her!
Itís the little things
And she always says ďlessĒ when she means ďfewerĒ
(Chorus)

Oh but just for once I want the cab to come when I book Ďem
Just for once I want the kids to eat what I cook Ďem
Just for once I want things to stay where I put Ďem
(Chorus)

Itís the little things, save us from the little things
Deliver us Lord from the little things
