Paul Thorn - It's A Great Day (For Me To Whoop Somebody's Ass)

(Image via Wikipedia)
Actually, it's a great day - just this song makes me chuckle.  Paul Thorn is a Blues/Rock singer/songwriter with a sense of humor.  This song reminds me of John Prine, who Thorn opens for on some tours.

While it's not quite Country, it's about a situation that all of us have found ourselves in.  I hope that all y'all are having a great day like me; if not, then I hope it's a great day for you to kick someone's ass.



It's A Great Day (For Me To Whoop Somebody's Ass) (Songwriter: Paul Thorn)
Have You Ever Had One Of Those Days
when Nothing Goes Right
your Wife Starts Bitchen 'bout Whatever It Was She Was Bitchen About Last Night
so You Escape Into The Bathroom
just To Sit There On Your Thrown
but After You Finish Your Buisness The Toilet Paper's Gone

well It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass
it's A Bad Day So You Better Get Off My Back
you Might Get Cold Cock If You Cross My Path
cuz It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass

well I Was Runnin Late For Work
so I Poured Me Some Coffee To Go
and Just Before I Had A Flat Tire I Spilled It All Over My Clothes
when The Highway Patrollman Pulled Up I Thought That Help Was On The Way
but When He Saw The Tire Tool In My Hand He Shot Me With Pepper Spray

well It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass
it's A Bad Day So You Better Get Off My Back
you Might Get Cold Cocked If You Cross My Path
cuz It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass

when I Finally Made It To Work
i Was 15 Minutes Late
i Told My Boss About The Flat Tire
but He Fired Me Anyway
so Here I Am Out In The Parking Lot
just Waiting By His Corvet
i'm Gonna Give Him A Goodbye Present That He Never Will Forget

cuz It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass
it's A Bad Day So You Better Get Off My Back
you Might Get Cold Cocked If You Cross My Path
cuz It's A Great Day For Me To Whup Somebody's Ass

He's a great singer and song writer. He has a ballad named something like "Where Was I When You Stopped Loving Me" that's on my top 10 list.
