The Lyrics

How many of you people out there
Just had a bad day and didn't care
Want a different day 'cause you swear
From all the things in that day
How many times you're stung by bees
How many times you've skinned your knees
Dropped something on your foot
Or chased by crazy rabid dogs

All this pain in just one day
Step in a puddle on your way to
Wherever you're goin' you'd better watch that first step
Got a black eye when you made toast
Was standing too close and you won't boast
About that happening to you once again

One day you could hammer your thumb
Or just get stuck in rainy weather
You could have bugs flying in your eyes
Or birds poop on your hummer
Or you could be closin' your window
Right on your hand and oh
The pain will surely take some time to go away

Oh, when your patience is at zero, honey
You've had too much and it isn't funny
You're lookin' for a different day
And you don't want to go back
Your couch by cats was just attacked
You're searchin' for a different day
Energy at zero, after
And you're not emitting some laughter
You're seekin' out a different day
Yeah you just told off your boss
Slipped in the drink, boat went across
Hope you'll find a different day

It could happen to you
Burn your mouth on some coffee
Roll down the hill on your skis
Or just lose your keys
Or get bugs in your place or get stuff stuck on your foot
You need some time for relaxing
You say this isn't happening, not happening
Not happening, not happening
Not happening, not happening

Turn the clock to the next day, honey
Just call in sick, 'cause this isn't funny
You're lookin' for a different day
Sleep in until noon, that's right
Yeah you just need to rest tonight
You're just needin' a different day

Got the flu, you'll tell your boss
But you know your jet ski was lost
It's still zoomin' around the bay
You should listen to good music
The kind that won't make you feel too sick
You deserve a different day

Break out your air freshener
Scenic pictures, you'll feel better
Had bad time water skiing
You say "it's not the sport of kings"
Fell off mower onto lawn
Or bad stomach, on the john
Aliens took you to their station
Went to someplace with frustration, yeah

Stand up once you're feeling well rested
Stand up get out of bed well when noon comes around
Stand up once you're feeling well rested
So you'll have a different day

When your day is feelin' too long
Recharge batteries and feel strong
Next day might not drag as much
It might have good things and such
So you told off your new teacher
And banged your head on some bleachers
Now you're livin' with some pain
Bet you won't do that again

Stand up once you're feeling well rested
You might get out of bed when 2 pm comes around
Stand up if you're feeling much better
You could have a different day

Oh the clock does its rotation
Missed the bus, it left the station
On Jeopardy said wrong question
You dozed off with class in session
If you find your boat and then
Friends not joyriding it again
It's the stuff you wanna handle
But then you're caught in a scandal

Stand up if you ever feel well rested
You could get out of bed when 4 pm comes around
Stand up if you feel like it after that
Possibly a different day

(Singing): "You turned the clock, to right a bad day, so correct your mistakes, buddy, so you will start a brand new day". Great work, Phil. I can relate! I just hope I don't get those kinds of days everyday. Don't we all? Here's 555's to make your day! :)

Ditto Mark. As a biker, with 30 years riding, the bugs in the eyes & stung by bees (down an open collar or up a sleeve) are particularly annoying.

Someone once told me "the sh** life throws at you is just fertiliser". A philosophy I try to adhere to daily. This was a thoughtful, clever and humorous. Great work Phil. 555
