Have a Nice Day Lyrics

Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?

Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he...

    This is a song that can be said one way but taken another, it could be a genuine wish that you have a good day and enjoy life, or a sarcastic response to someone trying to drag you down.

    "When the world gets in my face I say Have a Nice Day" is basically a sarcastic response when someone is trying to get you down and you aren't letting whatever they said bother you.

    Jon wrote this song when he saw what was happening with the US election and the war going on. He saw people getting divided because of beliefs. This song basically means look on the bright side and don't let others knock you down. Don't be a sore loser, but don't be a sore winner either. (Awesome song, btw.)
