GET UP, TOO LATE, FIND A NOTE ON MY BED
WHERE SHE WRITES ''I HAVE A DATE, 'CAUSE I FELL IN LOVE WITH FRED
WHO THE FCUK IS FRED, I JUMP OUT OF MY BED
WHERE'S THE BLOODY PHONE EVERYTHING IS GOING WRONG

HIT MY HEAD ON THE DOOR, THEN I FALL RIGHT ON THE FLOOR
I'M LOSING CONTROL MY BOSS IS WAITING FOR MY CALL
I RUN TUMBLING DOWN THE STAIRS - IS THERE ANYONE WHO CARES?

SHIT HAPPENS - OH MY GOD - ARE YOU KIDDING
I CAN'T CHANGE IT - KEEP IT - COOL RELAX
WHAT CAN YOU DO SHIT HAPPENS
IS IT REAL - IT'S A JOKE - I CAN'T CHANGE IT
HANG IN THERE - RELAX - WHAT CAN YOU DO SHIT HAPPENS

RED LIGHTS TRAFFIC JAM, NO IDEA WHERE I AM
# GET MY BOSS ON THE WIRE AND HE SHOUTS AT ME #
? DRIVE MY CAR TO THE BAR, DRINKING BEER I'M GOING TOO FAR ?
ONE AND TWO AND SIX UNTIL I'M SUPPOSED TO PAY THE BILL

SOMEONE STOLE MY BLOODY MONEY
YOU KNOW POLICEMEN ARE NOT FUNNY
WHEN THEY PUT ME INTO JAIL AND I MEET THIS GUY NAMED CALE
HE SAYS: ''HEY LETS SPEND THE NIGHT''
I AM SCREAMING FOR MY RIGHTS

SHIT HAPPENS, SHIT HAPPENS, SHIT HAPPENS
SHIT HAPPENS - OH MY GOD - ARE YOU KIDDING
I CAN'T CHANGE IT - KEEP IT COOL - RELAX
WHAT CAN YOU DO SHIT HAPPENS
IS IT REAL - IT'S A JOKE - I CAN'T CHANGE IT
KEEP IT COOL; RELAX - WHAT CAN YOU DO

SHIT HAPPENS IS IT REAL - IT'S A JOKE - I CAN'T CHANGE IT
KEEP COOL; RELAX - WHAT CAN YOU DO

I CALL MY LAWYER: ''WOULD YOU SAVE MY LIFE?''
BUT HE SAYS, "SORRY, I REPRESENT YOUR WIFE.
BY THE WAY MY NAME IS FRED, AND I'M LYING IN YOUR BED
AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNT - OF COURSE
WILL BE MINE WHEN YOU'RE DIVORCED.''

SHIT HAPPENS - OH MY GOD - ARE YOU KIDDING
I CAN'T CHANGE IT - KEEP IT COOL - RELAX
WHAT CAN YOU DO SHIT HAPPENS
OH MY GOD - MUST BE DREAMING
I CAN'T CHANGE IT - DON'T GIVE UP - RELAX
WHAT CAN YOU DO SHIT HAPPENS
OH SHIT - KEEP COOL!
