Why you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me?
Try to understand
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away
Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang on to
It gets me through the night
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to
I'm gonna live my life
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly
When the world gets in my face
As I say, have a nice day
Have a nice day
Take a look around you, nothing's what is seems
We're living in a broken home of hopes and dreams
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand
Everybody, pray enough to take a stand
I knocked on every door, on every dead end street
Looking for forgiveness
What's left to believe?
When the world keeps trying, to drag me down
I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground
Well I say, hey
Have A Nice Day (x2)
