IS THIS A GREAT DAY OR WHAT

(c) 2003 Bonnie Wilson Daniels

 

When I woke up this morning,

The sun was shining bright,

The sky was blue without a cloud,

And everything was right,

I hopped into the shower,

The water felt so good,

It brought me to my senses,

Just like I knew it would.

Is this a great day or what

 

A glass of juice with toast and jam,

And I am out the door,

Ready to take on the world,

Like I have tried before,

I’m standing tall, my chin up high,

Just walking on the air,

One little step above the ground,

Without a single care

Is this a great day or what

 

Chorus:

You have to live a little, save a little

Time to have some fun,

Make the most of every day,

Be kind to everyone,

Read a book or ‘phone a friend,

And I came by to say,

You will see without a doubt,

It’s gonna be a great day

 

I got into my Chevy truck,

Turned on the radio,

All along the interstate,

The traffic was so slow,

All the cars in front of me,

Were faced with much delay,

And so were all the other cars,

Going the other way

Is this a great day or what

 

Work all day at the office,

Back home again by five,

I pet my cat then walk my dog,

It’s great to be alive,

Grab myself a bite to eat,

And drink a cold ice tea,

Then slip into my favorite chair,

And turn on my T. V.

Is this a great day or what

 

Bridge:

I like sunshine every morning,

Skies that are always blue,

Some money in my pockets,

And my girl who’s always true

 

Chorus:

You have to live a little, save a little

Time to have some fun,

Make the most of every day,

Be kind to everyone,

Read a book or ‘phone a friend,

And I came by to say,

You will see without a doubt,

It’s gonna be a great day

Is this a great day or what
