Don't Worry, Play Banjo

There are some days -- actually a lot of them -- when I don't feel like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing; I'm not making a difference; I'm not creating anything of use to anyone; I'm just living the life of an ordinary lump of dirt destined to always be an ordinary lump of dirt.

But then I remember:

Don't Worry, Play Banjo
Based on the song Don't Worry, Be Happy written by Bob Marley and sung by Bobby McFerrin (sing along with the video at the bottom)

Here's a little song I wrote,
you might want to sing it note for note,
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo
In every life we have some trouble,
when you worry you make it double
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo now.
(Cool oohing)
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo

Ain't got no strings to play your licks,
somebody came and stole your picks,
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo
The landlord say you play too loud,
he may have to kick you out,
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo
Look at me, I'm playing
(Cool oohing again)
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo
I give you my phone number, when you're worried, call me,
I play you Banjo
     Don't Worry, Play Banjo

Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style,
ain't got no gal to make you smile
     But Don't Worry, Play Banjo
Cos when you worry, your face will frown,
and that will bring everybody down,
     So Don't Worry, Play Banjo
(Cool oohing once again)
    Don't Worry, Play Banjo
