New country stunned mullet cheer-up song


Above the nearing dawn,
And you close the blind,
You beat it by 10 minutes again,
And your room is getting light.

And you've got to get a job,
Sort out what to do,
Find out some direction,
And your friends believe in you.

And you're meeting all new people,
And they work so very hard,
I couldn't do what they do,
And I'm still in love with you.

I know it's so hard to get by,
Without a drink or two,
But you're a fighter my friend,
And all your friends they love you.

I know it's hard when you are tired,
And you can't sleep at night,
You gotta get that chin up cheer up chops,
And keep those smiling eyes.

Keep those smiling eyes...
