I have had these lyrics in my head for a while now, but I didn’t know what kind of song they would go well with. Last night I was left alone in the studio with beer. You know how dangerous that can be. So here it is, an in your face bluegrass with yours truly on vocals and my Christmas present from my wife, a Rondo SX Tele The backing tracks are straight from the BGShakr-bluegrass w shaker RT style with no modifications.

The lyrics are this, plus or minus a few words:

I Sit, Shave and Shower

Chorus:
I sit, shave and I shower
The whole process takes about one hour
But when I leave that room
I feel professionally groomed
Because I sit, I shave and I shower.

Verse 1:

People who know me think this is kind of weird
Because I’ve always had a beard
A secret I’ll let you in
I shave under my chin
When I sit, I shave and I shower.

Verse 2:

My wife and I well sometimes we fight
And on occasion I might not be right
She says today you didn’t sit
Because you are full of it
But I did just before I shaved

Chorus:

Verse 3:

My friends bet me I couldn’t sing this song
Without getting at least one word wrong
Now they are having a fit
Because I always sang sit
When I sang sit, shave and shower

Chorus:

Mario,

As Pat mentioned great play on words in the lyrics.
Sounds like this would be a hit at the the Grand Old Opry.
You and "Grandpa Jones" would have been had a blast with it.

Tripe S seemed like it was old military buzzword.
There was another one for breakfast or mid-night meals.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanx guys for listening and the comments, they are greatly appreciated.

Danny, the Tele is really nice. As a matter of fact I have a friend who has a $3,000 Fender Tele and after hearing and playing mine said he wasted $2,890! Last December this was only $110! But now I see it is up to $125, http://www.rondomusic.com/furrianmnashnat.html
But that is still a super deal.

The only thing I had to do was to lower the action via the bridge. Note I did nothing to the neck.

I hope this helps!

Thanx all for listening and the very nice comments!

Eddie, Pabst Blue Ribbon! No it was the Budweiser Bluegrass Band!

Tommyc, it was very hard not putting an H in there

Jptjptjpt – what happens when you try to download it?
