I had a rough day, but that's life, it happens.
Woke up on the dark side of my mattress.
I guess I forgot to set my clock, overslept almost lost the job.
Then to top it off, I'm kind of hungry,
But can't eat 'til I find my money.
It's in my wallet but my wallet ain't in my pocket,
Can't remember the last time I saw it.
And they don't want me in a bad mood,
Afraid that it'll spread and everyone'll catch an attitude.
They got 'em all singing' the same tune,
Thinkin' I should go and start a fire in the break room.
Coworkers make me sick, and the managers really a bitch,
But I can't quit, so I'm hiding in the basement,
Holding onto my face, like love this place.

Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate,
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.
Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate.
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.

Hell no I ain't going to school.
The teacher's a jerk he must think I'm a fool.
And when the kids mess with each other always, all day,
Class warfare up and down the hallways.
And if you ain't popular,
Nobody talks to ya, unless they mocking ya,
Not even the bus driver or the hall monitor,
I might as well climb inside my locker, huh?
It's a, bad day, bad week, and a bad month,
Don't nobody wanna trade with my bag lunch,
Someday I'm gonna be so cool,
But for now I've got cheap shoes so I keep losing.
Girls give no love to a poor man,
It's a prison, the clock is working',
and it won't get no better when I get home,
So I listen to the voice in my headphones.
It say…

Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate,
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.
Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate.
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.

Can't dance with an upset stomach,
The overdrive notices just kept coming,
Somebody broke into the porch and stole a chair,
Top of your head stopped growing hair.
Broken glass, computer crash,
Car won't start and the tires went flat,
Dog got loose brought back a dead cat.
Daughter found it and had a panic attack.
Plus you ain't had sex in how long?
Afraid to admit that the fire's all gone.
The better half is talking about separating,
You wish you could take it back to yesterday.
You're not alone, it's hard as hell.
But don't waste no time feeling sorry for self,
We'll be right here with you, through your war,
Cause you're the one that we make this music for.

Now turn it up!
Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate,
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.
Everyday can't be the best day,
Do what you can right now, don't hesitate.
That's why we try to make love and get paid,
Take the bad with the good, now let's play.

    I had a rough day, but that's life, it happens
    Woke up on a dark side of my mattress
    I guess I forgot to set my clock
    Overslept, almost lost the job
    Then to top it off, I'm kinda hungry
    But can't eat till I find my money
    It's in my wallet but my wallet ain't in my pocket
    Can't remember the last time I saw it
    And they don't want me in a bad mood
    Afraid that it'll spread and everyone will catch an attitude
    They got 'em all singing the same tone
    Thinking I should go and start a fire in the break room
    Co-workers make me sick
    and the manager really ain't shit
    But I can't quit, so I'm hiding in the basement
    Holding onto to my face like fuck this place

    [Chorus: 2X]
    Every day can't be the best day
    Do what you can right now, don't hesitate
    That's why we try to make love and get paid
    Take the bad with the good, now let's play

    Hell naw, I ain't going to school
    The teacher's a jerk, he must think I'm a fool
    and all the kids mess with each other always all day
    Class warfare up and down the hallways
    And if you ain't popular
    Nobody talks to ya, unless they mocking ya
    Not even bus driver or the hall monitor
    I might as well climb inside my locker huh
    It's a bad day, bad week and a bad month
    Don't nobody want to trade with my bag lunch
    Someday I'ma be so cool
    But for now I got cheap shoes, so I keep losing
    Girls give no love to a poor man
    It's a prison, the clock is warden
    Man it won't get no better when I get home
    So I listen to the voice in my headphones

    [Chorus: 2X]

    Can't dance with an upset stomach
