Feel good music, fun lyrics about being hot tempered


Got a short fuse
A red hot temper
I get mad May to November

Want to slow down
Open my eyes
‘Cos I live in paradise

I get angry
I get mean
I get nasty ghastly I cause a scene

I get ugly
I blow steam
I jump up and down till my face turns green

Got a short fuse…

I get nowhere
Then I scream
I yell quite a lot but don’t say what I mean

I’m a nightmare
Not a dream
I’m an exploding corroding machine

Got a short fuse…

I get shirty
And I frown
I can’t tell the difference between up and down

I play dirty
I’m a clown
I hiss and I spit and I fall to the ground

Got a short fuse…

I wear trouble
Like a crown
So far underwater I’m starting to drown

Like a bad smell
I’m around
I huff and I puff till I’m run out of town
