"Big Deal" as written by and Joseph Genaro Dean Sabatino....
Life sucks, then you die
And your soul gets sucked into the sky
Birds sing, I wonder why
You eat a bowl of cereal and sigh

You're late for your class
You're walkin' the halls without a pass

Big deal
Big deal

Time flies, time crawls
You're a prisoner trapped between its claws
Life sucks, sometimes
You gotta learn to live between the lines

Your feet are on the ground
But the world keeps spinning you around

Big deal
Big deal

Don't be worried, don't be down
I'll be your stupid happy clown
Keep your chin up in the air
Shake your body like you just don't care

Birds sing, babies cry
Life sucks and then you die

Big deal
Big deal
Big deal

    General CommentThe Dead Milkmen working their magic by somehow inspiring hope while sounding hopelessly depressed.

    My OpinionThis is one of my favorite songs of all time! It's telling people to get over the fact that life sucks. It is just such a powerful song, it's even more powerful coming from The Dead Milkmen because most their music is more laid back and comedic. I also think that The Dead Milkmen are referencing most their songs in the line "i'll be your stupid happy clown", and don't get me wrong those silly songs are great and meaningful too, but in this song I think they just wanted to show people how serious they can be. And it's awesome!
