"What Happened" as written by and Marshall Goodman Bradley James Nowell....
Wake up in the morning
Clock says half past one
I have no sunglasses
As I step into the sun

There's no recollection
Of the evil things I've done
My head feels like I musta had some fun

(What happened?)

Last thing I remember
I was chillin' at a party
Pinching girlies' asses
I was drinking recklessly

I know I did something
Lord what could it be
Woke up in the morning
And all my friends hate me

What happened?

What I'm I doing here
Who is this girl in my bed
What is this shit on my face
My God, what is that awful smell

She may be an angel
She may be a queen
She might be black, white, American, Indian or Japanese

What happened?

Through a bottle at a bouncer
Didn't think that he was cool
Pissed in someone's drink
And through a bike into a pool

Driving down the side walk
Like a crazy possessed fool
I broke every single traffic rule

Oh! What happened?
What happened?

Let's go

She may be an angel
She may be a queen
She might be black, white, American, Indian or Japanese

    General Commentoh gawd this song brings up so many 2nd hand memories (2nd hand because other people have to tell you what happened). It used to be when i was younger that my stomach would tell me when to stop drinking (ie i'd chunder if i had too much) now it never hapens, i simply wake up in some location wondeing what the fark hapened, how i got all these bruises and grazes, who's phone number that is writen on my arm and why i was text mesaging my mate at 3:30AM about "ptutig tha shoews in de freeezr, soo as me= runig faster than him haha Iwin"
