I Have To Stay Positive

I Have To Stay Positive

Got up this morning running a little late,
Ran outside and my shirt got torn on the gate.
Went back inside and changed my shirt and tie,
Kissed my girl and told her good-bye.

And I thought to myself," I have to stay positive."

When I got outside my dog got close to me,
And he was so excited that on my shoe he pea.
Got myself back in and changed my shoes and socks,
When I opened the car door I fell on a little rock.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

Tore my pants when I fell on my knees,
Stood right back up and hit my head on some trees.
Changed my pants and put a band aid on my head,
Then I left the house through the garage instead.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

Drove my car on the expressway and I was about to pass,
When my automobile died off because it was out of gas.
Walked to the gas station with a gas can in my hand,
Forgot my wallet so for a deposit I left my wrist band.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

Put the gas in my tank and I took off in my car,
And then I heard the siren after not going too far.
It was the policeman and he gave me three tickets,
No license, no insurance, and for calling him something wicked.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

Got to work late and I sat on my chair feeling very tired,
The supervisor walks in and tells me that I’m fired.
I go home walking and I’m feeling sorry for my loss,
My wife reminds me to go back because I am my own boss.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

Back to work I go on my son’s bicycle and I’m really mad,
My employees sit me down laughing and tell me to be glad.
Then my wife calls me on the phone to tell me about a letter,
Says our next child is on the way and she’s not feeling any better.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."

I take a taxi and I’m worried for my wife because it’s our tenth child,
My mind is going crazy thinking what to do as my emotions run wild.
Patiently I wait in the waiting room and the doctor sounds negative,
Then he says, "Yes, this time she’s having triplets and I’m positive.

And I thought to myself,” I have to stay positive."
