A SMOF Too Blue

Words: David Weingart 2002
Music: "A Gown Too Blue" (Brenda Sutton 2002)
Lyric posted with permission of the author

Dressed in a tee shirt and denim of blue
I'll do the things that the trufen all do
Off to the con I go
Dealers room and art show
I'll have a wonderful time
I find the party floors
Get stickered at the door
This con I know will be fine...they're my kind

I was the eager young neo
I knew the path I would steer
Who's working here in the consuite? Oh,
Wait, when did I volunteer?

I brought my books for the authors to sign
And now I'm the gofer directing the fen here on line
Now that I've worked the con
I'll help to put it on
Work hard to make this one grow
This weekend sure was fun
Next month's another one
And off to the next con I go. Will you go?

All that the concom could teach me
Everything I didn't know
Now, Ops is trying to reach me
Pardon but I have to go...have to go...have to go

1400 were the members we'd get
I worked at Reg and the room for the Net
Still, I see blundering
Here I am, wondering
"When will the programs get here?"
There's a place I can see
On the concom for me
I think I'll do it next year. Yes, next year

We'll have to prop this door open
The Masquerade's ending at ten
The elevators are choking
The staircase is locked once again...once again

Filkers and artists and gamers surround me
Everything's falling to pieces around me
Ribbons on badge have I
No time to wonder why
Everything used to be clear
It used to be clear.
Theres no escape somehow
I'm the con chairman now
Get me the hell out of here...out of here
