Highly original, this song is comedic and creative. Gotta laugh at the first verse...the word picture of wearing socks inside out, combing teeth, flossing hair..what a riot! Some really clever lyric writing here! Catchy chorus. Love the Polka Dot Blue phrase. Good stuff! Keep it coming.

    - Kate Carpenter

Like the groove. You have a distinct sound that's catchy. I like it very much.

    - David Payne

I've got this strange affliction
Been wearin' my socks inside out
Combin' my teeth and flossin' my hair
It's confusin', there ain't no doubt
What's got me in this kerfuffle
Like I'd been drinkin' too much zinfandel?
It ain't a "what" it's a "who"
And I'm confessin' to you
This could be trouble
Or somethin' else

Polka Dot Blue
Not your average little ingenue
Wearin' Polka Dot Blue
And servin' up her brand of country stew

Can't shake this spell I'm under
That's got me puttin' on these miss-matched shoes
And when I open my mouth
All the brilliance goes south
Seems my brain's taken off on a cruise

All my friends think I've lost it
Their spreadin' the word
"It may be straight jacket time"
'Cause they all knew me when
I was cool just like them
Now I'm crossin' the "crazy" line

Polka Dot Blue
She ain't your average little ingenue
She's wearin' Polka Dot Blue
And servin' up her brand of country stew

Was doin' just fine
Shufflin' along my own crease in the road
Ignorin' the signs
Not havin' a clue
Just a free buckaroo

If this was just a fever
A couple of aspirin and I'd be o.k.
But it's not my head
It's my heart
And some tender upstart
That's got my life in this disarray

Polka Dot Blue
Not your average little ingenue
She's wearin' Polka Dot Blue
And servin' up her brand of country stew
Polka Dot Blue...........
Love that dress and all the rest
