Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond
Talking optimist blues

I got worries by the ton, gettin' cancer's only one.
Overtaxed and alimonied, tired of eatin' fried baloney.
I got burdens on my shoulders, dying young or growin' older.
There's some brain cells I'm missin'
but despite it all, I'd like to say

I'm gonna have a good day today.
Gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.

Bills and pills and former wives
past mistakes and former lives.
Bank account is overdrawn
out of Prozac, hairline's gone.
Hearing voices in my head
say I should've stayed in bed.
Dog just died, but what the heck
nothing worse can happen anyway.

So, I'm gonna have a good day today.
Me, I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.

Pulled my back and wrecked my car.
Girl-friend stole my V.C.R.
Letter came from sixty minutes
say they wanna put me in it.
Tell me my career just died.
Years ago I might've cried.
Now I'm just too old to do it.
May be true, but screw it anyway.

Me, I'm gonna have a good day today.
And I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.

Hey, I'm gonna have a good day today.
Me, I'm gonna have a good time anyway.
Put it all behind me, lay it all away.
Gonna be a good day today.
