My Mule Won’t Obey Me

Catalogue #737

My mule won’t obey me, the children they hate me
My wife ran away with Manuel
The car’s repossessed, I can’t handle the stress
My paradise turned into hell

Somebody broke the TV, I can’t follow the score
There’s a smell in the fridge that’s gettin’ hard to ignore
My mule won’t obey me no more

Doin’ all that I can
Stick my head in the sand
Hey Amigo, you got some other plan?

Lorenzo he made me, Maria betrayed me
My mule won’t obey me at all
The yard’s overgrown, my cover is blown
I got no excuse, so I stall

It used to be so easy, I was popular then
Now I’m watching my back, it’s just a matter of when
My mule won’t obey me no more

Doin’ all that I can…

My boss never paid me, the messenger played me
I was stuck on a rock in the cold
The truck was a decoy, and I was the new toy
My mule won’t do what he gets told

My ladder is so shaky, it’s a long way to fall
I can’t control the cactus, now it’s up in the hall
I can see the demolition man knock on my door
My mule won’t obey me no more

Doin’ all that I can
Now the the shit hit the fan
Hey Amigo, you got some other plan?
