I've got a smile on my face,
and I've got four walls around me,
Got the sun in the sky,
all the waters surround me,
Oh, you know;
Yeah, I'll win now, sometimes I lose,
I've been battered, but I never bruise,
it's not so bad.
And I say:

Way, hey, hey, it's just an ordinary day,
And it's all your state of mind;
At the end of the day,
You've just got to say it's all right.

Janie sings on the corner,
what keeps her from dying?
Let 'em say what they want,
she won't stop trying,
Oh, you know;
She might stumble,
if they push her 'round,
She might fall, but she'll never lie down,
it's not so bad.
And I say:

Way, hey, hey, it's just an ordinary day,
And it's all your state of mind;
At the end of the day,
You've just got to say it's all right,
It's alright, it's alright. It's alright!

In this beautiful life,
there's always some sorrow,
And it's a double edged knife,
but there's always tomorrow,
Oh, you know;
It's up to you now if you sink or swim,
You just keep the faith that your ship wll come in,
it's not so bad.
And I say:

Way, hey, hey, it's just an ordinary day,
And it's all your state of mind;
At the end of the day, you've just got to say,
I say:

Way, hey, hey, it's just an ordinary day,
And it's all your state of mind;
At the end of the day,
You've just got to say it's all right,
It's alright, it's alright.

I've got a smile on my face,
And I've got four walls around me.
