Default Have A Nice Day Demo Lyrics.

Hi,

I can understand quite a lot of the lyrics to the song, however the chorus itself is something I get mixed up with, does anyone have the entire lyrics to this version of the song?

Thanks.

Edit: My First search didn't actually show that the results I wanted, but a slightly different search did, sorry about this!

Why you wanna tell me how to life my life?
And who are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Momma can you help me try to understand,
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy live to die that's just the price that he paid
Sacrificed his life just slaving away.

Oh if there's one thing I could give you
To get you through the night
Oh a little something to hang onto
To make you feel alive
Brighter than a diamond, sharper than a knife
Standing on the ledge, it might save your live
If there's one thing I could say

Have a nice day
Have a nice day

Living in a broken home of hopes and dreams,
Take a look around you nothing's what it seems.
Who are you to tell me where a flower grows?
Who are you to tell me that a child don't know?
Innocence has died out on a dead end street
Looking for forgiveness, down on his knees.

BRIDGE

Have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day
Have a nice day

SOLO

Oh if there's one thing I could give you
To get you through the night
Oh a little something to hang onto
To make you feel alive

BRIDGE

CHORUS

Love this version, the acoustic bit rocks.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I like the record version a lot more.
Only better section is this part imo:

That acoustic bit is good and makes for a less "formulatic" structure if you will, but I can understand why they took that bit out as it wouldn't have worked for a single.

I like the demo version but I think some of the bits work better on the one on the album, such as this bit:

"Living in a broken home of hopes and dreams,
Take a look around you nothing's what it seems."

Which is switched around on the album version, and seems to flow better.

Agreed about the lyrics. If they had kept the acoustic breakdown and kept the demo lyrics for the first part of the chorus, it would have been perfect (in my opinion).
