Hard To Be Happy

Hard To Be Happy

it’s hard to be happy when life gets crappy (x4)

it’s hard to keep smilin’ when the bills are pilin’ (x4)

life is like a salad / you gotta put dressing on / to make it taste good

and if that lettuce / is all brown and wrinkled / use extra dressing

knock on the table

it’s hard to eat steak when your teeth are fake (x3)

it’s hard to eat steak / have another milk shake

life is like a tree / you just stand around / waiting for the axe

once me and my woman / went hikin’ in the mountains

she was worried about bears / I said “baby relax”

a bear showed up

it’s hard to be funny when you lost your honey (3)

and it’s hard to be happy when life gets crappy

Darn It Ashley

so I’m hiking up in the mountains / with Ashley my girlfriend

unaware our happy trail / is about to end

we run into this mountain man / the mountain man says “hiya”

Speedo and a coonskin hat / he says his name is Jeremiah

darn it Ashley

Jeremiah has a moonshine jug / he’s a typical mountain man

Ashley takes a chug-a-lug / says “Jer, I like your tan”

well, we pass that jug around / I head for the moonshine zone

people let me tell you when I wake up / man, I’m all alone

darn it Ashley

I sit  down near the waterfall / to eat a little trail mix

I start in to missing Denver / God, how I love bricks

now this isn’t the first time / old Ashley’s gone astray

there was this cross-eyed matador / way down Mexico way

darn it Ashley

as Ashley’s out cavorting / with that Jeremiah dude

I sit around with my trail mix / longing for fast food

a Grizzly Bear comes nosing around / I figure it’s time to leave

Jeremiah my mama’s bowling ball / his name is probably Bruce or Steve

must reach Taco Bell

so I hop into my Neon / head back to civilization

turn on the Rockies game / to cheers and ovation

Larry Walker hits one out / the Rocks are up by three

Ashley don’t like baseball / baseball’s been good to me

darn it Ashley
