A good-natured spoof based on a 1974 essay by the fabulous science writer, Lewis Thomas.

Lyrics

Good morning folks, how do you do, we’ve something new for you, it’ll help you to get through your busy life,
Meditation had its day, but recent research has conveyed, thoughtlessness is really for the birds,
Yeah it’s worry that will see you through, wring your hands you’ll know it’s true, concentrating stress is for the best!

Transcendental meta-worry, you can do it in a hurry, just rush on through it quickly twice a day
Put your mind in overdrive, anxieties to maximize, you know you’ve got it when you feel that zing

Yeah, being in the now’s passé, that is just so yesterday, the future is where everything is at!
And sitting silently won’t help, make your mind a super “Yelp”, you must think of endless things to do,
Just do this before bed at night, to make sure that your head is right, maximizing stress will set you free!

Transcendental meta-worry, you can do it in a hurry, just rush on through it quickly twice a day
Put your mind in overdrive, anxieties to maximize, you know you’ve got it when you feel that zing

Students, parents, working folks, artists, farmers, artichokes, meta-worry works for one and all,
You see the more things that are on your mind, the faster that you move in time, the quicker that you run inside the wheel,
And feeling hyper is OK, and rest was meant for yesterday, we’re sure that this will be the next big trend!

Transcendental meta-worry, you can do it in a hurry, just rush on through it quickly twice a day
Put your mind in overdrive, anxieties to maximize, you know you’ve got it when you feel that zing

So hear me out, just listen folks, if you think this song’s a joke, try it for me for a month or two,
If you don’t feel that cosmic zing, call us back give us ring, we’ll give your money back without a hitch,
But don’t expect us to apologize, we’ll know you didn’t really try, if you didn’t even give yourself a twitch!

Transcendental meta-worry, you can do it in a hurry, just rush on through it quickly twice a day
Put your mind in overdrive, anxieties to maximize, you know you’ve got it when you feel that zing
Transcendental meta-worry, you can do it in a hurry, just rush on through it fifty times a day!
Put your mind in overdrive, anxieties to maximize, you know you’ve got it when you feel that zing
