Have you ever had a "Bad Day" you know, the kind of day where nothing goes right? Well this song is about one of those kind of days. It has a bit of a Latin flavor/beat to it. The lyric is written in a very conversational style so much so you can imagine anyone telling you this story as opposed to singing it.


Bad Daze

By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright (c) 2000


I woke up bad this morning
From then on I should have known
But that's the kind of day it was
So I sit here and groan

The alarm on time this morning
It rang right through my head
And 40 minutes later
I wasn't out of bed

I showered dressed and combed my hair
As fast as I could move
In record time I left the house
If only then I knew

At work in the morning meeting
Things started to get hot
I tried my best to keep my cool
But somehow I could not

When the day goes wrong
It's a sorry song
The opposite of holiday
Then the day wears on
And you don't feel strong
And you don't got nothing to say

I wonder why it has to happen to me
Do you wonder why it has to happen to you
It took most of the day for me to know
That bad days come and bad days go
