Papa Joe 
Quack, Quack
Quack, Quack
[Joe Kretschmer, 3/97; revised 11/00]

Woke up this morning on the wrong side of bed.
Pains in my back and pains in my head.
Just lyin' there thinkin' how the world just sucks.
Everybody sounds like a bunch of ducks...

Get up (quack-quack) it's a quarter past six.
(Quack-quack 's) broken and gotta be fixed.
(Quack-quack) are you really going to wear that shirt?
(Quack-quack) on your way home from work. [refrain]

[1st chorus]
Movin' through the day with a quack-quack-quack.
Two steps forward, three steps back.
Don't do diddly, don't know jack,
Everything's just a quack-quack-quack. [refrain]

You walk on out to the parking lot.
Car won't start 'cause you're (quack-quack's) shot.
(Quack-quack) says it's gonna cost a bunch.
(Quack-quack's) gonna eat your next month's lunch. [refrain]

[2nd chorus]
Movin' through life with a quack-quack-quack.
Waitin' for the world to cut you some slack,
Give you a little something for the things you lack,
But all you get is a quack-quack-quack. [refrain]

That big break's waiting out there for you,
You're (quack-quack) hungry and you're (quack-quack) due.
Only one thing for is (quack-quack) true,
This song's almost (quack-quack) through. [refrain 2x]
