About the Song[]

"My Shit's Fucked Up" is a mournful lament to the ageing process and the inevitable decay that accompanies it. The song describes the narrator visiting a doctor, where he receives unpleasant news: "your shit's fucked up". This song plays on Zevon's lifelong phobia of doctors and continues with the rather morbid theme shown by other songs on the album (such as "Life'll Kill Ya" and "Don't Let Us Get Sick"). Although "My Shit's Fucked Up" is an explicit track, the album it was on did not receive a parental advisory label.

Well, I went to the doctor

I said, "I'm feeling kind of rough"

"Let me break it to you, son"

"Your shit's fucked up."

I said, "my shit's fucked up?"

Well, I don't see how--"

He said, "The shit that used to work--

It won't work now."

I had a dream

Ah, shucks, oh, well

Now it's all fucked up

It's shot to hell

Yeah, yeah, my shit's fucked up

It has to happen to the best of us

The rich folks suffer like the rest of us

It'll happen to you

That amazing grace

Sort of passed you by

You wake up every day

And you start to cry

Yeah, you want to die

But you just can't quit

Let me break it on down:

It's the fucked up shit
