lyrics

I’ve been trying so hard
just to open this can
I throw it down upon the floor,
to go get a bandaid for my hand

Then it’s open and I’m not prepared
for peaches on my feet.
And I stumble, and trip on the cat
and knock over the bleach.

And if that’s what success feels like, great.
I’ll take it.
‘Cause I’ve never had it so good.

I’ve been trying so hard.
just to get my son to poop.
Then he’s jumping on my chest
and I finally hear the sound of doom.

Then explosion, and I'm wiping,
but the wipes are almost through.
Then my son says, "I'm sorry papa, but I've got more for you."

And if that’s what success smells like, great.
I’ll take it.
‘Cause I’ve never had it so good.

I’ve been trying so hard
to be a more professional guy.
I wear a button down shirt...
with an unbuttoned fly.

When I notice, I tell my students I need to go and wash my hands
and in the bathroom, I realize that I’m wearing my wife’s pants.

And if that’s what success looks like, great.
I’ll take it.
‘Cause I’ve never had it so good.

Stood up too fast, got dizzy, fell down, and now I’m on the floor.
But at least I’m not in that uncomfortable chair no more.
So, score. And I can hear the crowds roar:

If that’s what success feels like, great.
I’ll take it.
‘Cause I’ve never had it so good.
If that’s what success feels like, great.
I’ll take it.
‘Cause I’ve never had it so good.
