Song Description

A ruler breaks and comes to life, after its owner drops it on the floor. I marvel at how cleaver the lyrics are! The ruler "speaks" as if it were a person!

Story Behind the Song

After a music student brought me a broken ruler and kept repeating that "I AM A BROKEN RULER", it became my mission to bring the ruler to life in a song! I accomplished that with perhaps the greatest lyrics of my career!

Lyrics


VERSE ONE
I AM A BROKEN RULER, SO I CAN'T STAND UP STRAIGHT,
AND NO ONE EVER USES ME CAUSE NOW I'M SECOND RATE.
I FELL DOWN FROM A TABLE, THEN BROKE IN HALF AND CRIED,
MY OWNER TRIED TO SAVE ME BUT HER GLUE ALREADY DRIED.

CHORUS
I AM A BROKEN RULER, A FATE ALL RULERS DREAD,
AND SOMETIMES I WISH I WAS BORN A FOUTAIN PEN INSTEAD,
I AM A BROKEN RULER FIND A DOCTOR FOR ME PLEASE,
CAUSE I NEED AN OPERATION ON MY KNEES!

VERSE TWO
MY BROTHER IS AN INCH LONG, MY SISTER IS TOO SHORT,
MY PARENTS ALWAYS BLAME THEMSELVES AND ASK WHERE THEY WENT WRONG.
I WISH WE ALL WERE PERFECT, INSTEAD WE NEED REPAIR,
I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP US CAUSE MY FAMILY'S IN DESPAIR.

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE THREE
I WANT TO TELL MY STORY, TO RULERS EVERYWHERE,
WHILE LIFE IF OFTEN BEAUTIFUL IT ISN'T ALWAYS FAIR.
TO OWNERS OF ALL RULERS HERE'S ADVICE I WANT TO SHARE,
KEEP SOME FRESH GLUE IN YOUR POCKET HANDLE RULERS WITH GREAT CARE. KEEP SOME FRESH GULE IN YOUR POCKET HANDLE
RULERS, WITH GREAT CARE!
