about

Snapping out of a funk is easier said than done.

lyrics

It was never easy in the morning
It was a struggle in the night
There were shadows in the dark
And I couldn't face light
The preacher said it over again and again
And my folks they said the same and I tried to fit in

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So I ran in the morning and I ran in the night
Into the dark away from the light
I'm not saying that you lied
But it just wasn't true
'Cause it never worked for me
When it seemed to work for you

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So it doesn't matter if its morning
It doesn't matter if its night
I don't care if it's dark
I don't care if it's light
Every day's the same all the days are gray
And those words, those words they never go away

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
