'I've Had Enough'
© words and music by Mark S. Ludes (MSL)

Ya know that times are tough, and people can be too,
When you need a break and don't know what to do.
Life's struggles really put you to the test.
But, if you're lucky it just might bring out your best.
So you're feeling pretty down and hit new lows.
You're just barely hangin' on by your toes.
This old rat race has really got you down.
Better find yourself a 'raft' before you drown.

Well, so I'm working really hard to make a buck.
Seems I'm working hard but running out of luck.
Wonder everyday just how that I'll get through.
And I'm gettin' really tired of only 'making do'.

Break - solo: then chorus 1x

Is there anybody out there that can help?
If you're out there won't you please give out a yell.
Do some good for someone other than yourself,
Hey! Who knows, it might just do good for your health.

Well, yes I'm working really hard to make a buck.
And yes, I'm working hard but running out of luck.
I'd say this working ain't working I really need a break.
And now I've had enough, it's more than one can take!
And so I've had enough, it's more than I can take!
That's right, I've had enough, it's more than I can take.
I've had enough, much more than I can take...
'Gimmie a break!'

I like the lyric it develops a good believable story. It moves along at a solid country vibe. The tune construction is well put together. The vocal has a good country vibe, timing spot on. The electric guitar is good I wish for more guitar.


Instrumentation was awesome! The vibe I got was "fun" and this was fun to listen to! Loved the oooo's too! Great message too! :)

This song might work better if you made it into a novelty song like, "Mama Got Run Over By A Reindeer". I'm not being rude, I'm serious. I think this song would have better potential that way.

I Kind of sounds like a novelty song. got a fun groove to it. musicains are good. it makes you tap your feet
