Tomorrow Was Yesterday

Sometimes I become so befuddled
when my mind is torn and muddled
as I go on my slightly un-cheerful way
and wondering, was I here yesterday?

No, I say to myself, that was the day before
when I awoke at the hour of four
I couldn't believe I'd slept all day long
but in my mind, something was all wrong!

How did I get so confused?
I certainly was not amused
my doctors' appointment is at two
wait, I'm not wearing blue!

What does that have to do
with the price of tea in China!?!
Aw man, I'm so fuzzy and blue,
this is the big one, I'm having an angina!

'Now, where was I before I took my pill
wondering what's next as I sit and wonder still
'is that tomorrow, no, I argue and say'
can't be, because tomorrow was yesterday!

Oh!  The things I mutter and say
no one but me can answer anyway
please don't confuse me with the facts
I can clearly say what I understand: I'm cracked!

Tomorrow can't be before yesterday!
'cuz yesterday is tomorrow!
I'm glad I finally got that clear
cuz they were gonna send me to the nuthouse I fear!
