You're Damned If You Do And Damned If You Don't

(Verse 1) 

Get up on time

Spend every dime

On bus fare to get to work

Got a hole in your pocket and now you're ten cents short

And the bus driver is being a jerk

He finally let's you ride but gives you hell anyways

You look out the window and it starts to rain

You say "It looks like it's gonna be one of those days"

Get to work and you're boss is in a bad mood

He takes it out on you and you really don't feel like hearing any bull shit from that dude

But he's your boss and you got to keep your job in order to survive

You say "What a crock of shit this day is, I'm gettin' tired of all this jive"

 

(Chorus)

You're damned if you do and damned if you don't

No matter what you do you're totally screwed

You're damned if you do and damned if you don't

This whole damn day has got you feeling the blues

You're damned if you do and damned if you don't

Sometimes it just seems like you're damned, no matter what you do

 

 

(Verse 2)

Charged your phone and the battery died

In the middle of an important call and the person thought you hung up on them

So now they're mad at you and think their attitude is justified

Later on that day they see you at a coffee shop and walk in and give you all sorts of hell

You tell them about the situation with your phone but they don't believe you

Your day isn't going all that well

Some customer there complained because the guy was yelling at you

So the baristas threw you and your friend out for disturbing the other guests

While they were drinking their coffee and eating their food

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

(Verse 3)

Bought a brand new pair of high heels

The right heel broke off and you fell on your ass

Landing on gravel doesn't feel

As well as it would if you fell on some grass

You take the shoes back but they were on sale

Can't get a refund or an exchange on the fuckers

So there they go in the garbage pal

 

(Repeat Chorus)

(Coda).
