John Mayall – I Can't Complain lyrics
The taxman came knockin' on my door
I said I already gave, he said he wanted some more
Then my house burned down on a hot summer day
When I saw the smoke clear, didn't know what to say
But come what may, I guess I'll be ok
I can't complain

Got me a broke leg, actin' like a fool
Jumped off my balcony and missed the pool
Now my doctor's tellin' me that I'm eatin' too much fat
Says "high cholesterol just ain't where it's at"
They ask me any day, tell you what I say
I can't complain

My car's a lemon now, it's just broken down
For the hundredth time, I can't get across town
I never got invited to the Grammy show
If my luck ever changes, I really don't know
Ask me any day, tell you what I say
I can't complain
I can't complain
I can't complain
No, no

It's how you look at it, your attitude
You can't get through life without some gratitude
You can always make a list of what's going wrong,
But your list of blessings will be twice as long

Don't know if this song will ever make the charts
Don't know what machines are gonna fall apart
But I know for certain I can talk about the blues
One thing for sure, you know I paid my dues
Ask me any day, tell you what I say
I can't complain
I can't complain
I can't complain
No, no
