There are times when it seems the day is so overwhelming. These are short song lyrics which attest how stressful life can be sometimes.

I can’t get no relaxation

I can’t get no relaxation

Oh, I’ve tried and I’ve tried

But I can’t get no, get no

Relaxation

The words are dancing in my head

The baby’s crying for more bread

The house appears to be a mess

I always seem to be hard pressed

I can’t get no relaxation

I can’t get no relaxation

Oh, I’ve tried and I’ve tried

But I can’t get no, get no

Relaxation

My daughter needs help with math

The dog needs to take a bath

Dinner is burning in the pot

The rug has a few new spots

I can’t get no relaxation

I can’t get no relaxation

Oh, I’ve tried and tried

But I can’t get no, get no

Relaxation

Dishes piled in the sink

Think I need a real stiff drink

Wash is piling up on the floor

Want to run screaming out the door

I can’t get no relaxation

I can’t get no relaxation

Oh, I’ve tried and tried

But I can’t get no, get no

Relaxation

Time is such a fleeting thing

Each day the same but new again

I can’t get no relaxation

I can’t get no relaxation

Oh, I’ve tried and tried

But I can’t get no, get no

Relaxation
