George Watsky – Hey Asshole lyrics

Hey asshole
See the sun is shining
But you are not smiling
And I don't know why and I don't know why and I don't know
I'm an asshole,
Cause the sun is shining
But I am not smiling
And I don't know why and I don't know why and I don't know

I know I'm often told
That there's a pot of gold
But I don't see no fucking rainbow and my coffees cold
I know I should be grateful
I know I'm good and able,
But I don't have the strength to get up from the kitchen table
This kind of shot comes once
Another opportunity of a life time has slipped away
And that's the fifth this month
But when you take a punch
Don't you ever forget
Why you get up and you put one foot in front of the next!

Verse 1
Got the power of my will
I don't needa win a mill
But I'm looking at my window sill
Gotta take a better pill
Gonna pay for what it did to my head and my heart'll foot the bill
Got a foot in my mouth and because I'm kicking myself and I developed
A habit of knocking out my front tooth
Looking uncouth
Want to hear the truth
Give it to me straight 151 proof
Telling myself it'll happen when I'm happy
But I'm climbing up a ladder that has got no end
Hung up on a rung
I'll never make it to the top
Looking at the bottom
But I must descend
All I want to do is buck tis trend
Everybody needs a buck to spend
And I'll be working on myself till I work on someone else
Till I get there ima just pretend



Verse 2
When I'm in a crisis
In a moment of silence
I look under my eyelids
And I'm checking my mileage
I've been using a pool of water as a mirror but not for style
It's so I can reach in and pimpslap my reflection for acting childish
Spent a half an hour
Sitting at the bottom of my shower
Letting the water run over my body and (dammit I wanted to get up)
But I didn't have the power
I don't have the answers anyway yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay
Don't want to panic but I got to come clean
Because the plan of the planet is just mean
Knew if it was tough, but dammit it's obscene
I been huffing and puffing up to the top of the summit and ima
Rough it if I have enough steam
I'll keep on coming until I'm coming with the stamina of
A salmon who's heading upstream
Nah nah nah nah nah

Chorus x2
