If you aint one for talking loud and screamin at a bar
and you'd rather drive for miles with you lover in your arm
Oh hey hey, well thats okay
If you hate the job you're workin but you keep it for the pay
and it takes a pack of cigarettes to get you through the day
Oh hey hey, well thats okay
Oh hey hey, well thats okay

If you've got your lovers and your friends
and you've got that heart inside your chest
and if you're happy with yourself then all the rest can go to hell
Hey brother thats the story you should tell

If you take a shot a whiskey and you chase it with a coke
and everybody laughs at you cause you're tryin not to choke
Oh hey hey, well thats okay
And if you can't afford your car loan and your dog just ran away
and your girlfriends always mad at you and its raining every day
Oh hey hey, well thats okay

If you've got your lovers and your friends
and you've got that heart inside your chest
and if you're happy with yourself then all the rest can go to hell
Hey brother thats the story you should tell

If you're feeling like you lost it and you just can't catch a break
and it seems like you can't ever find the right words to say
Oh hey hey, well thats okay
Oh hey hey, well that's okay

If you've got your lovers and your friends
and you've got that heart inside your chest
and if you're happy with yourself then all the rest can go to hell
Hey brother thats the story you should tell
and if you're happy with yourself then all the rest can go to hell
Hey brother thats the story you should te

    My InterpretationThe meaning is pretty simple. Even if you may not be the greatest person on Earth, if you're happy with yourself, then who cares?
