I’m So Miserable

Wife…..Christine Ebersole
Husband…..Neil Levy

[ open on Husband facedown down at the kitchen table with a knife in his back ]

Wife: [ singing as she cleans up ]“Last night I killed my husband, we were married seven years
When I tried to hide his body, my eyes filled up with tears.
I hated when he beat me, but since he’s gone I found
I’m so miserable without him, it’s like having him around.

I hated all his habits… and smelly cheap cigars
The way he’d leave alone and hang out in the bars.
He used to be a big mouth, now he don’t make a sound
I’m so miserable without him, it’s like having him around.

I never could live with him, now I can’t live alone
I wish I had a boyfriend to call me on the phone.
Matters sure ain’t easy, if there’s one thing that I’ve found
I’m so miserable without him, it’s like having him around.

Yeah, I’m so miserable without him, it’s like having him around.”
