"Hang On" as written by Greg Camp, Steven Harwell and Paul Delisle....
Things are getting weird
Things are getting tough
Nothing's makin' sense but you keep on lookin' up
They tell you to be true
You're tryin' every day
To keep it on the real still you gotta find a way
To make your mama happy
To make your papa proud
You want to turn it up but all you hear is tone it down
So gather around I'm here to say
You'll never make everybody's day
But while you're around you might as well
Catch the tiger by its tail and

[Chorus]
Hang on hang on hang on
Everybody just
Get on get on get on
Get started
And go on go on go on
Everybody just hold on
Sometimes I want to cry
And throw the towel in

They try to beat me down but I'll take it on the chin
And everywhere I go people are the same
They just want to know that everything will be okay
If things are getting rough
Turn it back around
You gotta turn it up when they tell you tone it down
So gather around I'm here to say
You'll never make everybody's day
But while you're around you might as well
Catch the tiger by its tail

[Chorus]

So gather around I'm here to say
You'll never make everybody's day
But while you're around you might as well
Catch the tiger by its tail

    -I got into a fight with a friend at work one time, then I heard this song, and I calmed down

    "Sometimes I wanna cry and throw the towel in
    They try to beat me down but I'll take it on the chin"
    -No matter what happens to you, stay strong, sometimes it may seem like the whole world is against you, but you have to persevere.

    This is now offically my theme song...

    My InterpretationTo me, this song means that you should stop trying to be the perfect person everyone wants to be and just be yourself. "You'll never make everybody's day." and that's fine, because it's impossible to please everyone. :)
