"You Cannot Win 'Em All" as written by and S. Stephen Forbert....
You've got a lotta detail in your life, of late you find
Hey, now that you got kids, well, things loom larger in your mind
You make your best decisions in the time that you're allowed
And still get caught at Christmas in that final countdown crowd

It's always problems everywhere, you're juggling everyone
You do your best each day but when the sun goes down it's done, it's done
And then what slips through the cracks is just gonna go ahead and fall
Don't let it keep you up nights when you know my friend
You cannot win 'em all, oh no

Exterminator, lawyer, doctor, daycare, dental bill
Hey, now that you're essential, have you made yourself a will?
You gotta have insurance just to drive your car to work
And wind up down in court with some bad actor, neck brace jerk

It's always problems everywhere, you're juggling everyone
You do your best each day but when the sun goes down it's done, it's done
And then what slips through the cracks is just gonna go ahead and fall
Don't let it keep you up nights when you know my friend
You cannot win 'em all, oh no

Can't no one stop that airport that they're building over there?
Those planes won't hardly clear your trees and noise will fill the air
So set your sights on silent nights and greener pastures still
So much for your retirement dreams on Oakview Pleasant Hill

It's always problems everywhere, you're juggling everyone
You do your best each day but when the sun goes down it's done, it's done
And then what slips through the cracks is just gonna go ahead and fall
Don't let it keep you up nights when you know my friend
You cannot win 'em all, oh no, oh no
