"It Happens" as written by Kristian Bush, Jennifer Nettles and Bobby Pinson....
Missed my alarm clock ringing
Woke up telephone screaming
Boss man singing his same old song

Rolled in late about an hour
No cup of coffee, no shower
Walk of shame with two different shoes on

Now it is poor me, why me, oh me
Boring the same old worn out blah blah story
There's no good explanation for it at all

Ain't no rhyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
Irrefutable, indisputable
Fact is pssh
It happens

My trusty rusty had a flat
I borrowed my neighbors Cadillac,
I'll be right back going down to Wally World

That yellow light turned red too quickly
Knew that truck the moment it hit me
Out stepped my ex and his new girl
Sorry 'bout you neck baby

But it's poor me, why me, oh me
Boring the same old worn out blah blah story
There's no good explanation for it at all

Ain't no rhyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
The irrefutable, indisputable
Fact is
It happens

Ain't no rhyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
The irrefutable, indisputable, fact is
The irrefutable, indisputable, absolutable totally beautiful
Fact is,
It happens

    General Commentjust when u think everything is going great, it happens. There is no explanation for a ladder falling on a bmw on the last day of a huge apartment paint job where everything had gone perfectly. It cost $6700 to fix the bmw. it happens

    General Commentejsyiii - Ouch!

    This is such a fun song, and great to play when you feel like the world's against you. You can either dwell on everything that's going wrong or just shrug and say "it happens!"

    General CommentA song to convey life's message - Sometimes it happens. What an awesome song to pick you up on a bad day and show that everyone has those days. It's really funny and gets the message across that life ain't always a barrel of laughs but you just gotta pick yourself, dust yourself off and move on whilst learning and laughing at your mistakes and failures.
