VERSE
Tonight her marriage took its last run down a dead end road
She’s done with the L’Oreal and the Perry Ellis she’s keeps smelling on his clothes
This can’t be what that preacher meant by for better or for worse
She’s kept his house, fed his dog, man; this is some thanks in return
But come the sunrise, life as she knows it’s gonna end
Look out American dream, here she comes again

CHORUS
Better days……they’re just around the bend
Better days…... are blowin’ in the wind
Time to start remembrin’ her and forgettin’ him
She’s trading in those nights of wondering where he’s been
For better days

VERSE
Business man sitting as his desk busy as he can be
Boss walks up says, “Hey, I need to see you in my office today at 3”
There’s been a merger and a transfer of assets and the whole nine degrees
You’re on the short end of a long list of the people they don’t need
He loosens up his tie and walks out into the cool summer breeze
Looks up and shakes his fist at the sky, ‘cause he believes

CHORUS
Better days……yeah, they’re just around the bend
Better days…... are blowin’ in the wind
Hell, he couldn’t stand that job anyway
He’s trading in that overtime and underpay
For better days

BRIDGE
Every dog has its day
Blue skies always follow rain
Hip, Hip, Hooray for better days

INSTRUMENTAL

PRE-CHORUS
No looking back on a life that used to be
Today’s the first day in a new reality

CHORUS 2
Better days……yeah, they’re just around the bend
Better days…... are blowin’ in the wind
Hey can I can a big Amen for
Better days……yeah, they’re just around the bend
Better days…... are blowin’ in the wind
Every red-blooded American needs to stand up and shout
The US of A is on her way back, ain’t no doubt
Better days
Yeah-Better Days
