Rush hour traffic
Always puts me in a bad mood
I got chewed out by the boss today
And now I'm stuck on highway 92
Then you call me on my cellphone
While I'm cussing out a Cadillac
You say "remember Tom and Janey's little boy?
Well, the doctors say the cancer's back"

Man, it's been one of those days
When I've been thinkin' poor me
I've got no right to complain I guess
'Cause right now all I can see
Is a little angel in a Yankees cap
It makes me realize
It's just been one of those days for me
But for him it's been one of those lives

Everybody under my roof
Is healthy, knock on wood
Oh, but I sure do sweat the small stuff
I don't thank God as much as I should
Tonight I'm thinkin' about Tommy and Janey
And how they've spent the last four years
All those extended stays in Memphis
All the sleepless nights, the prayers, the tears

It's just been one of those days
Where I was thinkin' poor me
I've got no right to complain I guess
'Cause right now all I can see
Is that family movin' back in to Target House
It makes me realize
It's just been one of those days for me
But for them it's been one of those lives

And so, it's been one of those days
When I let things get to me
I've got no right to complain
'Cause when I look around I see
Folks out there fighting for every breath
And it makes me realize
It's just been one of those days for me
But for them it's been one of those lives

    There's always somebody out there whose situation is worse than yours. Don't take advantage as things as simple as having a happy healthy family
