Song Analysis: Dang Me

This flippantly self-deprecating little ditty by singer/songwriter Roger Miller became an all-around top-40 single hit for him in the summer of 1964.

Literally an anthem of a chronic lack of personal responsibility and obsessive hedonism coupled with a guilty conscience that plagues the main character of the song afterwards---along with his unwillingness to change his ways in spite of his guilty conscience.
