When you try to cheer yourself up,
but nothing really works,
and your friends are all being
such unapproachable jerks.
You just have to remember
that some days will suck,
so hold your head high
and don’t give a f**K.
And if you feel like screaming,
just let it all out.
Say every nasty word,
and don’t hesitate to shout.
If the neighbors start to complain,
just scream a little louder;
they’ll look the other way
when they see your rifle and gun powder.
Stand as tall as you can
and bid your shitty day farewell
because you’ve made up your mind,
knowing it’s better not to dwell.
Be happy you’re alive
and be grateful for each day.
And don’t forget to laugh sometimes,
it really is okay.
