Track Name: It's Not Your Day Today
You wanna fly
But you're too fat
You flap your arms
But it doesn't work like that
You bought a dog
It ran away
And it's not you're day today

You cleaned up nicely
You dressed your best
You said yes sir, how high
While they're standing on your chest
You sponsored a child
It died of aids
And it's not your day today

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is brown

If there's a God
He hates your guts
You need a hug
All you get is a kick in the nuts
Moses supposes
And he knowses how to hold a grudge
