"Have A Nice Day" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richard Sambora and John M. Shanks....
Why, you want to tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man
My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away

Oh, if there's one thing I hang onto
It gets me through the night
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to
I'm gonna live my life
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly
When the world gets in my face
I say, have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day

Take a look around you, look nothing's what it seems
We're living in a broken home of hopes and dreams
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand
Everybody, pray enough to take a stand
I knocked on every door, on every dead end street
Looking for forgiveness
What's left to believe?

Oh, if there's one thing I hang onto
It gets me through the night
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to
I'm gonna live my life
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly
When the world gets in my face
I say, have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day

Oh, if there's one thing I hang onto
It gets me through the night
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to
I'm gonna live my life
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly
When the world gets in my face
I say, have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day

When the world keeps trying, to drag me down
I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground
Well I say, have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day

    General Commenti'm pretty sure all that listens to this song will think that it sounds like all their other songs 'everday' and 'its my life' in particular, but for all the true bon jovi fans out there, we all hear an athem that makes us proud to be fans! Besides if you dont' lek the song love it for the line:

    'standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly'

    love the jov...

    General CommentThis is classic Bon Jovi. It means "I'm gonna do what I wanna do and deal with it". I'm a Bon Jovi fan through and through, and they haven't changed since the day they came out. They rock.

    General CommentWhat are yoy all talking about!
    I have been a Bon Jovi fan since their CD Crush, since then they were already being to comercial, but this song is the worst BJ song I´ve heard.
    You know, it´s not that bad, but you can´t compare it with "You give love a bad name" or " Bed of Roses".

    Anyway, Bon Jovi always gets to the point, so I´m sure everyone can understand this lyrics
