Roseanne

Friday, November 01, 2019

Roseanne, 1988-97, ABC
The Conner Family - Rosanne Barr as Roseanne as mom, John Goodman as
dad, Laurie Metcalf as Roseanne’s sister, 3 kids. The family tended to struggle for adequate employment - they went through many jobs. Per Wiki, “Many critics considered the show notable as one of the first sitcoms to realistically portray a blue-collar American family with two parents working outside the home, as well as lead characters who were noticeably overweight without their weight being the target of jokes.” In the 9th season, they win the lottery. Uh, huh ... That will get your typical struggling blue collar family out of debt.



Something More, Sugarland, 2004



Monday, hard to wake up
Fill my coffee cup, I'm out the door
Yeah the freeway, standing still today
Is gonna make me late, and that's for sure
I'm running out of gas and out of time
Never gonna make it there by nine



There's gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I'm gonna take my chances
Taking a chance I might
Find what I'm looking for
There's gotta be something more


(I’m not mean, I’m crusty”

Five years and there's no doubt
That I'm burnt out, I've had enough
So now boss man, here's my two weeks
I'll make it short and sweet, so listen up
I could work my life away, but why?
I got things to do before I die



There's gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I'm gonna take my chances
Taking a chance I might
Find what I'm looking for
There's gotta be something more


(I’m so amazing.
If I ever get up off this couch, I’ll be unstoppable)

Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate
I believe that happiness is something we create
You best believe that I'm not gonna wait
'Cause there's gotta be something more



I get home 7:30, the house is dirty, but it can wait
Yeah, cause right now I need some downtime
To drink some red wine and celebrate
Armageddon could be knocking at my door
But I ain't gonna answer that's for sure
There's gotta be something more!
