Written by: neil diamond and gretchen peters

I got worries by the ton
Getting kansas only one
Over taxed and alimony
Tired of eating fried baloney
I got burdens on my shoulders
Dying young and growing older
There's some brain cells I'm missing
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 estates and former lives
Bank account is overdrawn
Had a ? ? ? and hairline's gone
Hearing voices in my head
Saying I should have stayed in bed
Doc 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
Girlfriend stole my vcr
Letter came from sixty minutes
Saying they wanna put me in it
Tell me my career just died
Years ago I might have cried
Now I'm just too old to do it
Maybe 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
