Have Fun
Lyrics by David Cameron Anderson, Davecamson Music ASCAP
Music by Elizabeth Doyle, ElizabethDoyleMusic ASCAP

I'm going along and I'm perfectly fine
I'm having a really nice day
I'm lunching, I'm laughing, I'm lounging around
And then some dumb cluck will say,

"Have fun! Have fun!
Get up off your butt - go have fun!"
And I'm thinking, 'Why, you are the happiness elf!'
And I'm wishing you'd keep that 'fun' crap to yourself
Because nothing can put a nice relaxing day on the shelf
Like, "Come on! Get a move-on! Have fun!"

As a kid it was all I attempted to do
There was little that got in the way
I'd be running and yelling and tearing around
And then some dumb cluck would say,

"Calm down! Calm down!
You are way to excited! Now Calm down!"
I'd be thinking, "Well you could just leave if I'm loud!
And wishing you'd know to get offa my cloud
'cause there's nothing that grates like,
"It's just not allowed!
Kids you're way to wound up, Now calm down!"

It's not that I'm not winding up anymore
Though I find the recliner hard to ignore
It's the clucks who would tell me to do either/or
Oh, and here's some advice that I really abhor:

"Relax! Relax! Get over yourself! and Relax!"
And I'm thinking I just might give birth to a cow!
And I'm wishing I had the thing right about now!
Just to prove to you I'm not the type to cowtow
So YOU give it a rest and relax!
stay cool
hang loose
lighten up
CHILL!
