lyrics

Used to have the family
Used to have the kids
But now they've moved far away and i'm often here alone
Gotta move on now--get on with my work
This is the worst day in the world.

Didn't follow orders
Stayed who i am
I was supposed to be another man but i guess that's in the can
Gotta carry on now--get on with my world
This is the worst day in the world.

Never really married me she kept close to her family
Raised in SUCH a way to trust no one, you have to do just what they say
And if the heirarchy should fall just like the others did before
It doesn't matter, this is exactly what we came here for

Now the kids see you
The way you're meant to be
Met someone real nice who knows just what you need
So glad to move on now--get on with your life
This is the best day in the world
This is the best day in the world.
