Lyrics verse 1:
LIFE CAN BE
MIGHTY MONOTONOUS,
WE'RE ALWAYS
BATTLIN' BOREDOM
BUT WHERE,
TELL ME,
WHERE,
HAS IT GOTTEN US?
EV'RYTHING'S STILL
SO DOGGONE HUMDRUM:

Chorus:
STUCK IN A RUT,
GETTIN' NOWHERE
FAST,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
FIGHTING THE FUTURE
AND MAD
AT THE PAST,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
OH, HONEY,
WHEN YOU
AIN'T GOT MONEY,
THEN YOU
CAN'T JUST DO
AS YOU CHOOSE
JUST GOTTA LIVE
WITH
THE HUMDRUM BLUES.

verse 2:
DON'T KNOW
WHICH WAY
I'M GOIN',
DON'T KNOW
WHICH WAY
I CAME FROM
RAININ'
OR SHININ'
OR SNOWIN',
EV'RYTHING'S STILL
SO DOGGONE HUMDRUM:

Chorus:
EACH DAY
JUST LIKE THE DAY
BEFORE,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
WORK LIKE A DOG,
BUT I'M ALWAYS
POOR,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
OH,
BUDDY,
IT'LL RUN YOU
NUTTY
WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF
IN MY SHOES
STUMBLIN' ALONG
WITH THE HUMDRUM BLUES.

LOVE ME, HONEY,
I WISH YOU WOULD,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
SURE WOULD DO ME
A WORLD OF GOOD,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
OH,
BABY,
IF YOU LOVED ME,
MAYBE WE CAN GET TOGETHER
AND LOSE
THOSE MEAN OLD,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.

HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES,
HM,
HUMDRUM BLUES.
