Bitter

a song by Jill Sobule

I could slip, I could fall
In that mean and awful hall
With the other jealous bitches
And the bitter grumbling men

I could sneer, I could glare
Say that life is so unfair
And the one who made it, made it
‘Cuz her breasts were really big

Well I don’t wanna get bitter
I don’t wanna turn cruel
I don’t wanna get old before I have to

I could bitch, I could moan
Say I want to be left alone
But that’s not really true,
Because I like my time with you

Till you rant and you rave
Wishing fat folks to their grave
But I feel sorry for them
You say they get what they deserve

But I don’t wanna get bitter
I don’t wanna turn cruel
I don’t wanna get old before I have to

And I don’t wanna get jaded
Petrified and weighted
I don’t wanna get bitter like you

Like you, with the darts in your eyes
Like you, with disdain for mankind
I was charmed, now I wonder

I don’t wanna get bitter
I don’t wanna turn cruel
I don’t wanna get old before I have to

So I’ll smile with the rest
Wishing everyone the best
And know the one who made it,
Made it ‘cuz she was actually pretty good
But I don’t wanna get bitter
I don’t wanna turn cruel
I don’t wanna get old before I have to

And I don’t wanna get jaded
Petrified and weighted
I don’t wanna get bitter like you

No I don’t wanna get bitter
I don’t wanna turn cruel
I don’t wanna get old before I have to

And I don’t wanna get jaded
Petrified and weighted
I don’t wanna get bitter like you

That’s a pretty cool song.

Yup. Jimmy dubbed it for me. And since I have never heard it anywhere else, I thought I was the only one in the world who has ever heard it. Right up to yesterday. It helped that I had been googling for “Jill Sorbonne”, the whole time too.

Jill Sobule rocks. And she’s tight with my favorite musician of all time, Lloyd Cole. At a concert a couple of years ago she busted out a version of the Destiny’s Child song “Survivor,” which, if you ask me, far exceeded the original.

Jill Sobule’s “Supermodel” is a good tune as well - it’s in my iTunes.

Ha! If the only problems I saw in the world were big-breasted celebrities and fat people, I’d be pretty happy-go-lucky, too.

Hilarious. We should be worried cos these are the same guys behind Singapore’s new Tiger airlines.
