"Good Days Bad Days" as written by Nicholas James David Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew White....
Follow the underdog
Hold on his collar tight
This city loves a scrap
One day its gonna fight

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Cant stop me from having a good day on a bad day
There's good days and bad days

Making a night of it
Breaking the barriers
Drowning the sorrows
Upset the regulars

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Can't stop me from getting away with
Good days and bad days
There's good days and bad days

Oh hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey
Oh hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey

(Good days and bad days)

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Sticks and stones and animal bones
There's good days and bad days
There's good days and bad days

Hey hey, hey hey [Repeat: x4]

If you had a different attitude
Instead of taking taking to
You have missed an opportunity
And that's a really big mistake
If you had a different attitude
You'd still have good days and bad days

Hey hey hey

    General CommentTrue Lyrics...

    Follow the underdog
    Hold on his collar tight
    This city loves a scrap
    One day it's gonna fight

    Sticks and stones and animal bones
    Can't stop me from having a good day
    On a bad day
    There's good days and bad days

    Making a night of it
    Breaking the barriers
    Drowning the sorrows
    Upset the regulars

    Sticks and stones and animal bones
    Can't stop me from getting away with
    Good days and bad days
    There's good days and bad days


    Sticks and stones and animal bones
    Sticks and stones and animal bones
    There's good days and bad days
    There's good days and bad days


    If you had a different attitude
    Instead of taking taking to
    You have missed an opportunity
    And that's a really big mistake
    If you had a different attitude
    You'd still have good days and bad days

    General CommentI really like this song. It's about routing for the underdog. I think it's also saying it doesn't matter who you are, you're still going to have good days and bad days. Wealth, status, and success can't change that.

    General Commenti don't think these are the correct lyrics... :(

    or @ least it doesn't sound like they are singing this in the song.

    I really like this song though. Very catchy. It reminds me of another song I've heard...but I can't put my finger on it.

    General CommentIn interviews the band said they were inspired to write the song after seeing their football team Leeds United lose the Football League One Play Off to Doncaster Rovers.

    Thats from Wikipedia anyway.

    General Commentbabigurl492 has the correct lyrics.

    The song is about a miserable hater, who only feels good when he's hurting others, which is why he has his good days on bad days.

    He picks on the weak, grabbing an "underdog" by "the collar" and beating him up.

    Unlike those who use words, to negotiate confrontations, he uses "sticks and stones and animal bones," enjoys the pain he inflicts on others, and has a good day on their bad days.

    He goes out looking for a ruck, upsetting people out for a pleasurable drink, with his aggressive provocations: "Making a night of it Breaking the barriers Drowning the sorrows Upset the regulars."

    And in the last verse, the judge sends him to prison: "You have missed an opportunity And that's a really big mistake, If you had a different attitude You'd still have good days and bad days." Now he'll only have bad days in prison, 'cos he just couldn't behave himself, and be a decent person while he was free.
