"The Midlife Crisis Song" by Joshua Wentz

the 5th track from the album, My First Sing-Along Dictionary

Have a listen: Listen

A crisis is a time of trouble,
With difficulties in the way.
Some people find their dangers doubled,
While others merely pass away.

If you should find
You are in a bind,
There is no easy way to win.

You can run and hide up in your tower,
Playing games and having fun for hours.
As the time goes by,
You try not to cry,
And you wonder why
No one comes to save your skin.

 

Chico is having an identity crisis.
He is questioning just who he is.
The daily drudgery has taken over.
Now he has a job, a wife, and kids.

Maybe a hair cut
Or a fancy car?
There is no easy way to tell.

What might help to bring a little action
To a life devoid of satisfaction?
As the time goes by,
He tries not to cry,
And he wonders why
He has to stay at a motel.

Where did the time go?  Where did my life go?  Who am I?  Who am I?

A crisis is a time of trouble,
With difficulties in the way.
Some people find their dangers doubled,
While others merely pass away.

Chico feels he has made the wrong decision
Paying per view on the television.
As the clock strikes ten,
He calls his wife again,
And he wonders when
Exactly he had gone astray.
