Story behind the song
Ever have a day that starts out bad and just gets worse? In the end all you can do is laugh. Just when you think no more crap can happen to you...
The bank teller looked at me and gave me a wink,
said you don't got no money and your credit report stinks.
You owe $400 for two bounced checks, we're gonna repo your car though it looks like a wreck.
I'm gonna take your credit card and debit card too, and I'll take that $50 you got stuck in your shoe.
Gonna garnish your wages and the rest of your pay, is there anything else I can help you with today?
I said get a life. Go on get a life, cause you sure ain't smart looking and I'll eat a pillbug if you got a wife.
There's only one thing for you to do, that's get a life.
I went to my girlfriend's to get some sympathy. I met her new boyfriend he was hiding in a tree.
I said how come baby and she said I'm unfulfilled, but she didn't seem to mind if when I paid all her bills.
She threw all my clothes out on the front lawn, and I turned to get my truck but it was already gone.
She kept the valuable items, and my George Jones CD's, she only gave me one thing, and that was VD!
I was mad as a hatter and hotter than hell, took my girlfriend's car for a ride for a spell.
I made all the payments so I figured it was mine, didn't see the flashing lights as I crossed the county line.
I pulled to the side and the officer got out, I was so damned angry couldn't help myself but shout.
I rolled down the window and he stuck in his head.
I was gonna tell him off, but this is what he said, he said get a life, go on and get a life.
Cause you sure ain't smart looking and I'll eat a nickel if you got a wife. Get a life, get a life. There's only one thing for you to do, that's get a life!
