Week 15: My problem

Groucho Marx supposedly sent a telegram to his club saying “Please accept my resignation. I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member”, and that’s what this song is about. Hopefully others can relate to this in some way too.

15 My problem
Lyrics:

I’ve got impeccable taste
when it comes to women
I know when I see love in a face
That’s not my problem

And I’ve got a healthy physique
and pretty good hygiene
I’m not somebody who reeks
That’s not my problem

Chorus
But as Groucho famously said
quoted in a book that I read
If you’d have me in your club
then you’re a desperate dud
and that’s my problem

I’ve got a pretty good way
with conversation
I can always think of something to say
That’s not my problem

And I’m gainfully employed
in a respectable business
With work that I kind of enjoy
That’s not my problem

Chorus

I meet plenty of girls
‘cause I’m a musician
They keep popping into my world
That’s not my problem

And I’m happy to reveal
all the secret feelings
I’m not afraid to show what I feel
That’s not my problem

Chorus
