​I Just Dropped in to See What Condition My Condition Is In

This song is by Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings.

Woke up this morning with the sundown shining in
Found my mind in a brown paper bag within
Tripped on a cloud, fell eight miles high
Tore my mind on a jagged sky
Hey, I dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
Watched myself crawling out as I was crawling in
I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
Saw so much till I broke my mind
Hey, I dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
Yeah yeah yeah, see what condition I was in
Hey yeah baby, see what condition I was in

I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
Saw so much till I broke my mind
I dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Someone painted "April fool" in big black letters on a dead-end sign
I had my foot on the gas since I left the road and I blew out my mind
Eight miles outta Memphis and I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I dropped in, check out this condition my condition was in

I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
Hey, check out the condition, oh, my condition
Yeah, oh what condition my condition was in
Oh, check it out
I got to see what condition it's in
Hey, I got to check out my condition and see...
Just make sure it's all right now...
