Wait wait. You haven't actually heard it in full? How can you think the new version is such a "Big mistake" when you haven't even heard the old?

These are the lyrics to the first version:

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

I much prefer the final version - it has a rawer rock edge than the original, and the solo is much better. I wish they'd kept in the quiet part though, it sounds great, and makes the song a bit longer.

Aloha !

I've got it too. I agree that it's better than the version on Have A Nice Day.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan
