lyrics

It's so good not to feel shitty,
To greet the new day with a grin,
To roll out of bed with a clear headed head
Prepared to take stuff on the chin.
You may feel decidedly witty,
Your step may be peppered with spring,
'Cos it sucks so much arse to feel shitty
That not feeling shitty's the thing.

You may have been under the weather,
You may have been feeling the blues,
You may've been quite sad 'cos you'd done something bad
That was plastered all over the news.
Maybe your head had been pounding
From a night that was furnished with booze,
But that time has now past and you're chipper at last
And you actually feel quite enthused

'Cos

It's so good not to feel shitty, (SHITTY!)
To greet the new day with a grin, (TING!)
To roll out of bed with a clear headed head
Prepared to take stuff on the chin. (POW!)
You may feel decidedly witty, (HA HA HAA!)
Your step may be peppered with spring (BOING!)
'Cos it sucks so much arse to feel shitty (SHITTY!)
That not feeling shitty's the thing.

P'raps you've been quite broken hearted,
P'raps you've been feeling the strain,
P'raps you've been kicking yourself in the head
Again and again and again and again and again and a...
Maybe your nights had been sleepless
And your chutzpah was starting to wane,
But now you're on track and your sparkle is back
Your laughter is hard to contain

'Cos

It's so good not to feel shitty, (SHITTY!)
That not feeling shitty's the thing.

When you're down on your luck or in a bad funk you're stuck
It can feel like you're all out to sea.
It seems the way back is something you lack
And maybe you'll never be free.
Just keep your eye on the horizon
And watch for the flare in the air,
Then reset your course and with ultimate force
Just get the hell right outta there.

This week you can't stop from smiling,
There's a shift in your general demeanour,
And it's quite crystal clear that the good times are here,
Something for which you couldn't be keener

'Cos

It's so good not to feel shitty, (SHITTY!)
To greet the new day with a grin, (TING!)
To roll out of bed with a clear headed head
Prepared to take stuff on the chin. (POW!)
You may feel decidedly witty, (HA HA HAA!)
Your step may be peppered with spring, (BOING!)
'Cos it sucks so much arse to feel shitty (SHITTY!)
That not feeling shitty's the thing.
'Cos it sucks so much arse to feel shitty (SHITTY!)
That not feeling shitty's the thing.
'Cos it sucks so much arse to feel shitty (SHITTY!)
That not feeling shitty's the thing.
