New song?

I think I have the seed of my next geeky hit.

Curse You, Bethesda Softworks!*
(a 1-4-5, 12-measure blues in a similar mode to "A Gallon of Gas" by The Kinks)

I slept really badly. My back's all twisted up.
Coffee is my best friend. I'm on my seventh cup.
I don't know why I did it. I've got too much to lose.
I guess I'm just an addict. Got the too much Skyrim blues.

EDIT: Verse 2!

My work is really suffering. My boss is getting mean.
I need to kick this habit, but I don't want to get clean,
'Cause at night when I'm dreaming, it's adventure and honey booze,
And I wake up every morning with the too much Skyrim blues.

-------

*Just for the record, this is actually not why I'm tired and bleary today. I just came up with the idea on my way in to work this morning.

I'm probably contributing with all my "Hey, let's play Star Wars: The Old Republic!" calls. Sorry about that!

But I'm having tons of fun teaming up with your smuggler! Especially on Nar Shadaa, which is rapidly becoming my favorite planet so far for story in the game.

No, it's not that, honest. I actually got to bed at a decent hour last night. I just ... didn't sleep well, so I woke up all bleary and foggy. And late. Not your fault at all. Like I said in the footnote, I just had the idea this morning and thought it was funny.

Sorry you're not feeling well. =/

But LOL that's a fun start, I think. XD

Thanks. I think I have verse 2, now, also. (I'll edit the post with it in a few minutes.)

So will there be a verse about an "arrow to the knee?"

(I had to look this up because I had no idea why EVERYONE on the Internet was saying this!)

Oh, yes, the song will mention "an arrow to the knee". ;-)
