The Hey Lah Dee Dah Song

from Shaking Off Gravity

You got your Daddy's money
You got your Mamma's good looks
They sent you off to college
You read all the right books
But when they break out the photos
With the Christmas stuff
You look more like the mailman
And feel less like yourself

Hey welcome back to the land of
Meat and mashed potatoes
You're breaking those connections
But they won't let go of you
Till your therapist calls you back
There's something you can do

You can take a deep breath
Take a look around
Sing hey lah dee dah
As the world goes by

You never did like weddings
Said you'd never be a wife
You didn't want no Prince Charming
Taking up your life
Now there's a man on your front porch
With a big belly too
He's whistling Sinatra
He's married to you

When you're lookin in the mirror
Do you see everything you stood for
Start to fade like a hit parade

Of songs from years ago
Must be more to growing old than
Covering up your wrinkles

Take a deep breath
Take a look around
Sing hey lah dee dah
As the world goes by

Sing hey lah dee dah
Hey lah dee dah
Hey lah dee dah
As the world goes by

Hey lah dee dah
Hey lah dee dah
Dah dah dah...

Constantly recovery
Remission of sins
Old unpaid balance

Which bag are you in?
Is it in with your laundry?
Is it out with the trash?
The piece of paper with your mantra
And fifty bucks hard cash?

Spinning around on this big green ball
Is bound to make you dizzy
Saddle up your life and hold on tight
When the ride gets rough
Don't forget every once in a while
To simply pick your feet up

And take a deep breath
Take a look around
Sing hey lah dee dah
As the world goes by

Hey lah dee dah
Hey lah dee dah
Hey lah dee dah

As the world goes by...
