I've Had A Really Bad Day


We thought this song was a bit heavy for the 2nd CD, but it's a great riff, a neat lyric, so we had to include it. Clive Shepheard brought a song of his in that had this riff, well a simplified version of it and I wanted to expand the riff in his song, but he didn't want to, so I said can I have the riff and do what I like with it and write a song... so that's what we did. I had the lyric almost complete but with another song around it that wasn't working big time, so I matched that lyric with the riff and BINGO, now that's lucky.

We were still finding our sound on the 2nd CD. I still think it's a touch over produced, a bit "Phil Spector" but good songs and it hangs together well, so that's fine. I decided I'd produce the 3rd CD less and when it came to the 4th CD, we recorded that with even less "production" again... very happy with that one.

I don't sleep well at night, I toss and turn left to right
My television's broken, I'm 15 Mile out of town
My '57 Chevrolet, has just been towed away
My boss just made a phone call, I'm not required any more

So don't talk to me I'm in a really bad mood,
Don't listen to me, I might say something rude,
Don't think about looking at me the wrong way,
Get it through your thick head, I've had a really bad day

My little Sister's in jail, my big Brother's out on bail,
My very best friend, has run off with my wife, again,
My life as a whole , is lacking quality control,
I couldn't win a bet, I'm bad luck, I'm in debt

Who's that knocking at the door, looks like my Mother-in-law,
I'm hopin' and I'm prayin', she's not thinkin' bout holidaying
