Whine! Whine! Whine!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 20 Apr 24 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, must, musterbation, musty thinking, Rational Songs & Limericks, Videos |


 Dr. Ellis loved making fun of his and our distorted thinking and irrational behavior with humorous rational songs, and  limericks. Humor is, of course, fun, but also very powerful in helping us break the bonds of our irrational thinking.  Here is a special video by Dr. Ellis singing his famous “Whine! Whine! Whine!” song about demanding and “musty” thinking.




Old Whine in New Bottles!


In this video, Dr. Ellis humorously equates “whining” with making demands, “musty thinking,” making it evident that this “behavior” is not only irrational and unhelpful,but also an emotional leftover from childhood.  Enjoy . . .

This precious video of Albert Ellis singing the “Whine! Whine! Whine!” song used to be all over the internet. However, somebody–presumably some poopbutt at AEI–seems to have removed it. I wish I had downloaded a copy. 🤬

Luckily the lyrics are still available. Enjoy!

“RATIONAL HUMOROUS SONGS by Albert Ellis, Ph.D.WHINE, WHINE, WHINE! (Yale Whiffenpoof Song by Guy Scull a Harvard Man)

I cannot have all of my wishes filled
Whine, whine, whine!
I cannot have every frustration stilled
Whine, whine, whine!
Life really owes me the things that I miss,
Fate has to grant me eternal bliss!
And since I must settle for less than this
Whine, whine, whine!”
