“It really doesn’t matter…”

Standard

 

Sometimes, I get discouraged.  Sometimes I wonder if I’m even good at anything. Now, I’m not suicidal or near insane (not that I know of, at least) I’m just very melancholic, so it’s easy to get discouraged.

I recently watched The Pirates of Penzance.  It’s really a bizarre movie, but it’s also very funny, in a weird sort of way.  The lyrics to one of the songs in that movie kind of reminds me of how I feel sometimes.  It’s literally called “It really doesn’t matter.”

Sometimes I feel like everything I try to do “isn’t generally heard and if it does it doesn’t matter, matter, matter.”

 

Maybel and Fredric. He’s so cute!

 

Here are the lyrics to the song.  They’re actually very humorous:-)

FREDERIC:
My eyes are fully open to my awful situation,
I shall go at once to Mabel and I’ll make her an oration,
I will tell her I am bound by duty and my moral senses,
And I don’t know what to do about the pending consequences,
Now I do not want to perish by the sword or by the dagger,
But a pirate must indulge a little pardonable swagger,
And a word or two of complement my vanity would flatter,
But I’ve got to go tonight, so it really doesn’t matter.

ALL:
So it really doesn’t matter. (repeat five times)

ALL:
So it really doesn’t matter matter matter matter matter.

RUTH:
If this were not a little mad and generally silly,
I should give you my advice upon the subject willy-nilly,
I should show you in a moment how to grapple with the question,
And you’ll really be astonished at the force of my suggestion,
On the subject I shall write you a most valuable letter,
Full of excellent suggestions when I feel a little better,
But at present I’m afraid I am as mad as any hatter,
So I’ll sing this song from Ruddigore it really doesn’t matter.

ALL:

What we sing it doesn’t matter! (repeat five times)

ALL:
What we sing just doesn’t matter matter matter matter matter.

 PIRATE KING:
If I had been so lucky as to have a steady mother,
Who could talk to me as we are talking now to one another,
Who could give me good advice when she discovered I was erring,
Which is just the very favour which on you I am conferring,
My existance would have made a rather interesting idyll,
And I might have lived and died a very decent indiwiddle,
This particularly rapid unintelligible patter,
Isn’t generally heard and if it is it doesn’t matter.

FREDERIC AND RUTH:
If it is it doesn’t matter. (repeat three times)

ALL:
This particularly rapid unintelligible patter,
Isn’t generally heard and if it is it doesn’t matter.
This particularly rapid unintelligible patter,

Isn’t generally heard and if it is it doesn’t matter matter matter matter

 matter matter matter matter matter!

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my
    blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

  2. I’m sorry it took so long for me to reply to your comment! I’m not posting on this blog anymore so I rarely monitor it. About the theme, I actually was just testing it out. I didn’t like it very much because all the widgets were at the top, not on the side, where they normally are. And, thank you so much for your encouragement! That’s always helpful. If you want you can follow my current blog, floweringkeyboard.wordpress.com. I blog about my journey as an author in training and sometimes share my writing. Thanks again for your comments!
