Hump Day Sing-a-long: Hubzam, You Old Sew and Sew


All hail the King of the missing buttons, tiny mystery holes in the shirt, and tears at the corner of the pockets. You are your clothes' most loyal and faithful friend. But there comes a time when the two of you may have to part ways; I don't want you to rule that out. You have many more pairs of pants in your future and the sewing machine drives me crazy with it's uncontrollable tension knob. Ladies, you know what I'm talking about - right?

Let's sing, peeps - shall we?

Hubzam On My Mind
Sung to the tune of 
"Georgia On My Mind"

Hubzam, hubzam
I'm noticing a trend -
Every other day 
You've got something I must mend.

Hubzam, oh hubzam
No peace will I find; 
Till I mend your pants,
You'll keep sewing on my mind.

Other clothes hang there lonely
Don't think that I don't see
Your blue shirt and khaki pants 
Are less and less Sears...and more me.

Hubzam, hubzam
I know it might seem rash
Can the Singer rest -
And the pants go in the trash?

    Ha! Brilliant!

    Now if you'd quit mending Uncle Scam's drones maybe we could all go back to natural jungle living.

    1. Listen, when a poor defenseless drone (as in "lacking an appropriate agency" defenseless) drone hovers into my Cherdo-space, I have to customize it, pronto!

      Ah...Monkees Lover. Now I'm totally in your court.

  2. Mend clothes? With the Chinese, Bangladesh, etc.etc. cranking out new clothes at cheap record paces, in the trash (or donate) they go.

  4. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    That's a very clever piece. It wasn't just sew-sew. I'm in stitches.

    How can you mend a broken inseam?
    How can you stop the zipper from falling down?
    How can you stop the moon from shining?
    What makes the belt go round?
    How can you mend a this broken tartan?
    How come I'm using every pin?
    Please help me mend my broken inseam and let me live again

    Happy Wednesday, dear friend Cherdo!

    2. Okay, now I have a whole slew of Bee Gees themed sewing parodies in my head:

      Ha, ha, ha, ha...sew in a line, sew in a line... (Staying Alive)

      You need to do a companion blog that is totally devoted to pun-craft and invite the worlds greatest punsters to duel with you. We could get you some dark armor with a custom crest and call you The Pun-isher. Are you game?

      Or is that what we are doing already and no one told me?

      Have a great day,50 Shades of Play.

  6. I don't mind fixing some things, but I refuse to deal with socks. When they get thin or develop a hole, they do go bye-bye into the trash can.

    1. I hate sorting socks because the dang things won't stay together in one load. I always end up with a single waiting for it's mate.

  7. YES!! What is it with wearing the same pants and shirts over and over when they have a whole closet full of clothes. I'll sew on a button here and there but its easier to just buy new pants sometimes.
    very catchy song!

    1. I tease Hubzam about wearing a uniform that is not required for his job. Now that I stay home and the suits/dresses are far behind me, I've found I have a uniform, too. Capris, V-neck shirt, comfortable shoes...I'm more accepting of it.

      But when it's been a busy week and there's still clothes in the closet - wear them!

  8. Great poem and I had the song in my head while reading. Thankfully I don't sew worth a lick so I am safe except for buttons which I do by hand

    1. See? You're smart. I could have just hid the sewing machine.

  11. Say, my favorite jeans just ripped right down the side of a back pocket. Do you think...

  12. Perfect Perfect Perfect !
    I try not to buy any of the sweat shop, Chinese slave labor clothes but that is getting harder and harder.
    My everyday work clothes sound like your but I still have a few nice pieces if I need them.
    Duck type is my go to !

    cheers, parsnip

  13. I can sing your song and substitute Willy for Hubzam--but I'm no seamstress. You make me laugh, young lady. I really want to call and sing your song and Shady's to you, but it's 2:43 a.m. so I guess I won't.

    Love,
    Janie
