50 Ways To Leave Your Blubber

The problem is all inside your head
She said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I’d like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To leave your blubber 

She said it grieves me so
to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do
to make you smile again
I said I appreciate that
and would you please explain
about the fifty ways
