Based on the story in the NYTimes about the Zodiac signs
being adjusted due to misalignment over the years.

lyrics

I woke up this mornin', and knew something had changed
my room felt rotated, and so did my brain
I thought to blame the tequila, but that just didn’t seem fair
so i checked on facebook, to see what had been shared

It seems some old Astrologer, had a bit of a wine
& decided that the moon, has left us misaligned
So I’d gone to sleep a Capricorn, & woken Sagittarius
& I’ve just begun to see, what the implication was

where I used to be the epitome, of a hard workin practical man
a good manager who tended to prefer,stickin with the traditional plan

now i’m frequently seeking, answers to the big questions of life
an archer who’s an extrovert & in a changing world I thrive

so I’m rewriting my mantra, i’ll quit my job and grow my hair
i feel so lucky being told what to be,
who too see, how to feel, what to wear

So everyone gets shifted, one sign back from where you’re born
and the dawning of Aquarius, is now the age of Capricorn
so I guess that means the hippies, are now the practical ones
bet they knew that all along and just kept on having fun

To make things line up right, they added a 13th sign
it’s Ophiuchus, the Serpent Holder, if he don’t stop that he’ll go blind
& now I guess chart readers, are gonna have to give refunds
to make up for the stuff they made up, or just take the money and run

CHORUS

Oh ain’t it fun letting your life be run
by the stars, the moon & the sun
