ALRIGHT

____________________________________________________________

I’m sittin’ here looking’ at the bills I gotta pay

And the stack’s getting’ higher every single day.

You know, the money ain’t comin’ in

Like I wish it would,

But it’s all gonna be alright.

 

Well, I turn on the the TV, I put on the news,

I wonder why the heck people doin’ what they do.

Looks like things ain’t never gonna change,

But it’s all gonna be alright.

 

Alright, alright, it’s all gonna be OK.

Alright, alright, it’s all gonna be OK.

 

I put on my jeans and they feel a little tight.

I look in the mirror and it don’t look right.

There’s an old man looking’ back at me,

But it’s all gonna be alright.

 

There was a man in the White House & Momma used to say,

“Don’t say nothing’ if there’s nothing good to say.”

…But it’s all gonna be alright.

And the rain’s gonna fall and the river’s gonna rise.

But in spite of everything  it’s gonna be alright.

The wind’’s gonna blow and the baby’s gonna cry,

But in spite of everything,

Everything’s gonna be alright.

 

Once upon a time I had a full head of hair,

Then I blinked my eyes and now there ain’t much there.

It’s growin’ out my nose and comin’ out my ears,

But it’s all gonna be alright.

 

Now I find myself in the middle of a room

And I don’t remember what it was I was gonna do.

I know it was important but I can’t tell you why,

But it’s all gonna be alright.
