(2003 Tour Version)

I slept through the night, I got through to the dawn
I flipped a switch & the light went on
I got out of bed, I put some clothes on
It was a pretty good day so far

I turned the tap, there was cold, there was hot
I put on my coat to go to the shop
I stepped outside & I didn't get shot
It's a pretty good day so far

I didn't hear sirens or explosions
No murders coming in from those heavy guns
No UN tanks, I didn't see one
It's a pretty good day so far

No snipers in windows, taking a peak
No people panic, running scared through the streets
I didn't see any bodies without arms, legs, or feet
It's a pretty good day so far

There was plasma & bandages & electricity
Food, wood & water & the air was smoke-free
No camera crews from my TV
Pretty good day so far

It was all such a strange sight to behold
Nobody was frightened, wounded, hungry, or cold
The children seemed normal, they didn't look old
Pretty good day so far

I walked through a park & you would not believe it
There in the park, there were a few trees left
And on some branches, there were a few leaves
It's a pretty good day so far

I slept through the night, I got through to the dawn
I flipped the switch & the light came on
I wrote down my dream & I made it this song
It's a pretty good day so far
