Upside Down

Upside Down

Here's a little song that came to me one night in March 2023.

Upside Down

What do you do when the world's all askew
and everything's out of its place?
Nothing is right and try as you might
You just can't stand the pace.

Upside-down and downside up
Back to front and front to back
Inside out and outside in
It puts you in a spin.

What do you do when your life's in a stew
and nothing is going your way?
It's all too much to handle or touch
And you don't know what to say.

What do you do when you're feeling blue
and nothing makes any sense?
Maybe a song or a smile will help
to make you feel less tense.

Welsh Chorus
Dibyn-dobyn, dobyn dibyn
Igam-ogam, ogam-igam
Miga-moga, moga-miga
Mae popeth o ei le
