Quotation of the Day…

… are lyrics from the final stanza of the studio recording of Hank Williams, Sr.’s, 1949 song “Mind Your Own Business”:

Mindin’ other people’s business
Seems to be high-tone;
I got all that I can do just to mind my own.
Why don’t you mind your own business?
Mind your own business.
‘Cause if you mind your own business
You’ll stay busy all the time.

Here’s a recording of a live performance by Williams of this wise song.  (Williams changes the wording slightly in this live performance, but in a way that only reinforces the wisdom of his counsel.)

Hank Williams (1923-1953) was born 91 years ago today in Mount Olive, Alabama.  He never got out of this world alive.
