Mercury in Retrograde

from Amy Denio: Eureka by Amy Denio / Spoot Music



Track #2 of 5 songs I wrote on January 20, 2019 for an Immersion Composition Society session.


Why this span of misfortune down on Earth?
Why is everything scrambled and spinning out of control?
It makes me curse, it's getting worse
I'm going burst at the end of this verse

O Mercury when you're in retrograde
The check will bounce and we won't be paid
Our travel plans to the north will suddenly go south
And we'd better closely watch what comes out of our mouths

Tits up again, my machine went tits up again
In between my fits of rage which go all the way to 10
Time is going backwards inside Big Ben
I prefer to leave the office and live in a glen
Away from the cockamamie inventions of men

O Mercury you've gone retrograde again
Better not to speak a plan or fly in a plane
O Mercury, when will this ever end?
Remind me not to hit 'Send'
I'll remain under the covers of my bed
Until I get the word from the front lines of the universe
that all is sane again
